In November 2015, the Eugene City Council adopted a Vision Zero Resolution that set as official policy the Vision Zero goal that no loss of life or serious injury on Eugene's transportation system is acceptable. Between September 2016 and September 2017, the Eugene Vision Zero Task Force developed an Action Plan. On March 29, 2019, Administrative Order No. 58-18-04 was signed into effect by the City Manager, formally adopting the Vision Zero Action Plan.
Vision Zero is an internationally recognized strategy with a goal to reach zero traffic-related deaths and life-changing injuries by 2035. It challenges local leaders, government agencies, businesses, and community members to work together and form partnerships to make our streets safe for everyone.
