The Atlanta Department of Transportation (ATLDOT) has begun the planning process for its Atlanta Vision Zero Action Plan. The plan will serve as a blueprint for improving safety and policy to address fatal and serious injury crashes on city roads.
In 2020, the Atlanta City Council reaffirmed its commitment to Vision Zero, a systemic approach to eliminating traffic deaths and serious injuries through safer street design, speed management and other proven strategies.
The city encourages residents, businesses and visitors to share their stories and help identify opportunities by visiting ATLVisionZero.com document safety issues with an interactive community input map and a short survey.
This information-gathering effort is a key element of a three-phase planning process:
- Project initiation
- Implementation planning
- Completion of the plan
A virtual community workshop is scheduled for Tuesday, March 7 at noon and Thursday, March 9 at 6 p.m. Details on how to join the meeting can be found at ATLVisionZero.com.
The plan is scheduled for completion in October 2023. The Atlanta City Council will consider adopting the final plan following a virtual community workshop and public review and comment period.
Community members can view project information and contribute throughout the planning process at project website. Questions can be sent to the project team at firstname.lastname@example.org with “ATL Vision Zero” in the subject line.
