Great news to get visibility and support through the city on the Vision Zero plan. Would like to see additional support to build sidewalks along with signage/enforcement of cars parking on sidewalks/parked partially in street. Furthermore, the reporting through Vision Zero is fatalities and “reported” injuries which is only a small amount of actual poor bike/pedestrian v car interactions. Also discussed during the city council meeting was education of cyclists/youth, which education needs to be expanded to all involved and not just single one group.
