12 Lessons from the Vision Zero Cities Conference

May 10, 2016 at 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

A discussion with local experts about big ideas – and how to implement them here.

In March 2016, a group of experts from the Portland region traveled to New York to attend the first Vision Zero Cities Conference. This conference bought together people from cities across the country to talk about best practices for implementing Vision Zero – the traffic safety approach that traffic crashes are preventable and that even one death or serious injury is too many.

Join these local experts in an informative discussion of lessons learned. The panelists will share the most successful strategies that cities across the county have used to work towards Vision Zero. The panelists will have new ideas and precise tactics that can be implemented in our own communities to work towards safer streets for all.

Panelists:

Clay Veka – Vision Zero program manager, Portland Bureau of Transportation
Kristi Finney-Dunn – Founder of Oregon & SW Washington Families for Safe Streets Sgt. Bret Barnum – Traffic Division, Portland Police Bureau
Noel Mickelberry – Executive director of Oregon Walks

Co-sponsored by Oregon Walks
