Vision Zero Public Input 

On November 8, 2017, the City released draft versions of the Vision Zero Action Plan and the Alexandria Police Department's Traffic Safety Plan for public review and comment. The City received nearly 200 comments on the plan and 86% of people who viewed the plan supported it.   The development of these two plans highlights the City's commitment to providing safe streets for all users and reducing fatalities and severe injuries on the roadways.  The Action Plan outlines how the City will achieve Vision Zero by 2028.  The final plan will be presented to City Council on December 12 and will be recommended for adoption on December 16. 

Over 1,000 residents, visitors, employees, and business owners were engaged in the Vision Zero Action Plan process.
