The City has announced that the draft Vision Zero Road Safety Plan (RSP) document is online for public review and residents are invited to read the draft report and offer their feedback online.
The RSP will influence the direction taken by the City, stakeholders, and community partners when considering road safety. The City says 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‘.
“Vision Zero can be summarized as; no loss of life or injury on our roads is acceptable,” said 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.”
To date, public engagement for the plan has included an open house at City Hall, five “pop-up” community consultation events, and a public road safety survey. The City also created a Road Safety Advisory Group consisting of key stakeholder organizations that made contributions to the plan’s development.
