Vision Zero Road Safety Plan now available for review
June 5, 2019 -
The City has posted the draft Vision Zero Road Safety Plan (RSP) for public review. Members of the public are invited to read the document and offer any feedback they have by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or through the Get Involved Kingston website by June 24.
"Vision Zero can be summarized as; no loss of life or injury on our roads is acceptable," says Deanna Green, manager, traffic division with the City. "This Road Safety Plan is the result of several months of public engagement and consultation with community partners. It outlines a strategy to address Kingston's specific road safety challenges."
Public engagement related to the RSP included an open house at City Hall, five "pop-up" community consultation events and a public road safety survey. The City also established a Road Safety Advisory Group made up of key stakeholder organizations that contributed to the development of the plan.
As a high-level strategic document, the RSP will inform the approach that the City, stakeholders, and community partners consider with road safety. For the City it prioritizes future road safety measures that can be integrated with active transportation initiatives and incorporated within the multi-year work plans of the Transportation and Public Works Group.
Members of the public can access the RSP on the City's website.
