Vision Zero

What is Vision Zero?  

  • Vision Zero strives to eliminate all traffic fatalities and severe injuries, while increasing safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all.
  • Vision Zero recognizes that people will sometimes make mistakes. Roadways and related policies should be designed so that those inevitable mistakes do not result in severe injuries and fatalities. 
  • Vision Zero is a multi-disciplinary approach, bringing together diverse and necessary stakeholders to address these complex problems.

The Action Plan

During the summer of 2022, Engineering and the Transportation Safety Group worked with Environmental Partners to develop a Vision Zero Action Plan.    The Select Board adopted the plan at its meeting August 15, 2022. The final plan is posted here
