Complete streets promote user safety and serve people of all abilities. They are developed with the intent of increasing "active transportation" by focusing on walking and biking mobility by integrating people and place in street planning and design. Vision Zero is a strategy to eliminate all traffic fatalities and severe injuries, while increasing safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all.
A Complete Streets & Vision Zero Workshop was held in Caldwell by Vitruvian Planning and United Way in January. Transportation, health sector, police and planners all joined for a day of learning about addressing traffic safety at a local level through a Complete Streets and Vision Zero lens. In unison, these strategies can reduce accidents, promote safety and make our streets more user friendly for all types of transportation and mobility.
