A Big Win for Vision Zero


1: City of San Diego and CSD staff explaining Vision Zero design alternatives for University Avenue at a pop-up engagement event

Being an urban planner can sometimes feel like being a sports fan of a mediocre, underperforming team. You take a lot of hits and tough losses and are at times forced to swallow some bitter pills. I’ve questioned if being a planner is the right career for me in the same way I’ve often rationalized my support for my sports teams. I tell myself the big victories make it all worth it.

Watch the New Vision Zero Video then Urge Mayor Faulconer to Complete and Activate the Vision Zero Strategic Plan


One year ago, San Diego City Councilmembers committed to the goal of zero traffic deaths in San Diego by 2025 by unanimously adopting a Vision Zero Resolution

One year later, there is more talk about Vision Zero than action. One year is too long to wait to save lives.

We initiated an email letter campaign this past week to allow concerned San Diego residents the ability to contact the Mayor and their Councilmember.
