View the Vision Zero Action Plan

Portland is committed to ending traffic violence in our communities. Through the Vision Zero program, the City of Portland and our partners are working to eliminate deaths and serious injuries on our streets.

Portland City Council passed a resolution adopting Vision Zero in June 2015. This set in motion a planning effort that created the Vision Zero Action Plan and a 2-year update approved by City Council.

The next Vision Zero Task Force meeting is Tuesday, October 22, 2019, 9:30 a.m. to noon, at Portland Community College Southeast, 2305 SE 82nd Ave, in the Community Hall.
