In 2015, the Bellevue City Council adopted a Vision Zero resolution, proclaiming that the life, safety and health of residents, employees and visitors to Bellevue is the Council’s highest priority. The City’s commitment to this priority is reflected in the Vision Zero goal: Zero traffic-related deaths and serious injures by 2030.
The City is currently creating a Vision Zero Action Plan to coordinate existing programs and identify opportunities where new efforts are needed to make Bellevue’s streets safe for everyone. Whatever someone’s age, physical ability, or how they choose to travel—walking, bicycling, transit, driving, or otherwise—they should get wherever they want to be safely in Bellevue.
An online questionnaire is now available through February 11: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VisionZeroBellevue.
Feedback from this questionnaire will help City staff better understand the public’s perceptions about street safety and what factors feel most threatening to people traveling in Bellevue. Responses will be used to develop strategies and take action.
Together, we will achieve zero!
