This Vision Zero Action Plan is the result of collaboration and partnership. A 26-member Task Force, convened by City Commissioner Steve Novick and representing a diversity of agency and community stakeholders, led the year-long Vision Zero action planning process. The group met six times and oversaw the content of this plan.
In addition, the Vision Zero Executive Committee, made up of state, regional, and local elected officials and agency heads, kicked off Vision Zero and committed resources to the project. A Technical Advisory Committee provided input on data, design, analysis, and outreach.
Finally, the voices of Portlanders are woven into this plan. They shared stories of tragedy and called for change. The Vision Zero Action Plan is an answer to that call.
The Vision Zero Task Force, pictured below in 2016, will oversee implementation of this action plan. The group will convene quarterly to review actions and progress, advise on implementation, track equity impacts, and oversee annual performance measure reporting.
Achieving Vision Zero goals will require ongoing investment.
In May 2016, Portlanders approved early funding for the plan when they voted for a citywide gas tax to create the Fixing Our Streets fund. Generating $64 million for projects across the city over four years, this new funding source will support the Vision Zero commitment to make capital safety improvements in Portland’s High Crash Network.
Funding for Portland's Vision Zero Action Plan has been provided in part by the Oregon Department of Transportation Safety Division and the Federal Highway Administration. Thank you for the generous support.
