Police Panel/Public Safety Committee

12/09/2015 - 6:00pm

In the next Public Safety Forum on Wednesday, December 9th, The Boston Public Health Commission will review Vision Zero, the City's brand new initiative to significantly reduce injuries and fatalities from crashes involving motor vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians.  

They will: 
  • provide a general overview of Vision Zero
  • review Boston's Vision Zero Action Plan
  • conduct a mapping exercise of perceived safety issues vs. actual,
  • review educational campaigns from other cities and what strategies were used, and 
  • review the latest crash data.  

This presentation should be both interesting and useful for all of us. Since the initiative is quite new, we will also help to shape it based on our own experiences.

The meeting will take place from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Hale Chapel of The First Church in Boston, 66 Marlborough Street.
