City releases draft Vision Zero Action Plan focused on preventing traffic deaths, severe injuries on City streets  

The City of Minneapolis has released a draft of the Minneapolis Vision Zero Action Plan, which outlines key steps for the next three years to advance the City’s goal of ending traffic deaths and injuries on City streets by 2027. The City is taking public comment on the plan through Oct. 16.

The draft plan was developed by City staff from multiple departments with significant direction from community stakeholders, partner agencies and the public. The City of Minneapolis officially became a Vision Zero city in September 2017 when the City Council passed a resolution setting a goal of eliminating traffic deaths and injuries within 10 years. Minneapolis is one of more than 35 Vision Zero cities in the United States.

An average of 95 people suffered life-altering injuries or were killed in traffic crashes each year on streets in Minneapolis from 2007 to 2016. Traffic crashes disproportionately impact people in neighborhoods with lower incomes, Native American residents, and people walking and bicycling. Traffic deaths and severe injuries are unacceptable and preventable.

The draft Vision Zero Action Plan includes 16 strategies and 68 actions to be implemented between 2020 and 2022.

Highlights of proposed strategies include:

Next steps

A final Vision Zero Action Plan will be brought to the City Council for approval by early 2020 after incorporating any changes based on public feedback.

The Vision Zero Action Plan is being coordinated with the Minneapolis Transportation Action Plan, a 10-year action plan to guide future planning, design and implementation of transportation projects for all people in all the ways they move around. A draft of the Transportation Action Plan will be released in early 2020.
