Community Input Requested for the Denver Vision Zero Action Plan

Denver Vision Zero is pleased to announce that the final draft of the DVZ Action Plan is ready for stakeholder and public feedback.

The city of Denver began laying the groundwork for its Vision Zero initiative in 2015, and during his 2017 State of the City address, Mayor Hancock announced the city’s commitment to eliminate all traffic-related deaths and serious injuries on Denver’s roadways by 2030. The Action Plan is a five-year approach that sets the City and its partners on a clear path to achieving this goal.

Denver’s Vision Zero Action Plan seeks to reduce fatal crashes consistently year-over-year through infrastructure projects, policies and programs, increased coordination among partners and improvements to data and transparency. Someone loses their life every six days while travelling in our City. We don’t have to accept this as inevitable.

Denver developed the Plan in coordination with dozens of City agencies and partners, including the Denver Vision Zero Coalition, Colorado DOT, Denver Health & Hospital Authority, DRCOG, RTD, Denver Public Schools, Colorado Department of Public Health and the Environment, AAA Colorado and the Mayor’s pedestrian and bicycle advisory committees.

Please join the effort, review the Denver's Vision Zero Action Plan, and provide feedback via the  Vision Zero web page by August 11, 2017.
