Who Should Get Involved
If you’re interested in improving the walkability and livability of our neighbor, the Vision Zero Committee has many neighborhood-wide projects to join in on.
The South of South Walkability Plan (2009) recognizes that targeted public investment in projects to improve walkability will build on the neighborhood’s assets while mitigating existing problems.
The Vision Zero Task Force has been working on implementing our neighborhood's Walkability Plan. The goals of this initiative are to foster a safe and pleasant pedestrian and bicycling environment, to educate residents about safe streetscape design, and to implement well-tested traffic calming measures that improve the safety of our streets for all users. The focus in on improving the experience and safety for pedestrians and bicyclists, whose needs have historically been ignored.
The Walkability Plan recognizes the value of walking, biking, and complete streets to bring vitality to the South of South neighborhood.
