Vision Zero Minneapolis
What is Vision ZeroSign up to be a part of Vision Zero and receive updates.
On September 20, 2017 the City Council passed an ordinance that provides for a Vision Zero policy to eliminate fatalities and serious injuries that are a result of crashes on city streets within the City of Minneapolis by 2027.
Vision Zero asserts that deaths and serious fatalities as a result of traffic crashes are unacceptable and are largely preventable. To that end, we will use proven strategies such as lowering speed limits, redesigning streets, and implementing meaningful behavior change campaigns to help make the streets safer for anyone who uses them, no matter if by foot, bicycle, or vehicle.
The commitment to Vision Zero is a citywide commitment, and will require the work of numerous departments throughout the City to reach the goal of zero fatalities or serious injuries. In addition, the City will engage communities affected by this vision to solicit their ideas and support in making safer streets a reality.

The City of Minneapolis will develop a Vision Zero Action Plan, and will use data and community engagement to define the next steps in the effort to end fatalities and serious injuries on our streets. While the Action Plan is under development, the City will engage communities around this effort, develop an awareness campaign, continue making safety improvements throughout the city, and use data and a review of best practices to guide those actions and support the development of the Action Plan.
How can I get involved?
We look forward to engaging with you on Vision Zero! For this vision to be successful, it will require the input and commitment of everyone using our streets. To stay connected on this effort, please email VisionZero@minneapolismn.gov.
