On Wednesday, March 25th at 7pm, Dongho Chang from SDOT will be presenting at our HPAC meeting on the topic of Vision Zero and pedestrian safety in our neighborhood. Some information about Vision Zero:
Seattle is consistently recognized as one of the safest cities in the country. Over the past decade, we’ve seen a 30 percent decline in traffic fatalities, even as our population grows. Despite this fact, traffic collisions are a leading cause of death for Seattle residents age 5-24. Older adults are also disproportionately affected, and as our population ages, this trend could grow. In 2013, there were 10,310 police-reported collisions in Seattle. 155 people were seriously injured and 23 were killed. Vision Zero is Seattle’s plan to end traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2030
District 1 Candidate Lisa Herbold will also be there to address our Community and answer questions. Here is our experience with Lisa:
Lisa has years of solid experience addressing the needs of the City as a whole and would be able to lead on Day 1. She has also been helpful to us locally. Lisa was an indispensable voice in helping us navigate a complicated situation when Nickelsville was next to our neighborhood. Consistently available to respond to our many questions, she was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in explaining existing and proposed policy and history. Helping to bring the concerns of our community directly to the table in City Hall, she proved to be full of compassion, an effective problem solver, eloquent, well versed in legislation, a good listener, and was able to see all sides of the situation.
Potluck at 6:30, meeting starts at 7 at the Highland Park Improvement Club on 12th and Holden
