body

 

 

WHEREAS, the Council supported the development of a Vision Zero traffic safety program in the City of Richmond by Resolution No. 2016-R011, adopted March 7, 2016, and reaffirmed its support through Resolution No. 2017-R093, adopted March 12, 2018, to reduce traffic fatalities and serious injuries in road traffic to zero by the year 2030, through comprehensive planning including promoting improvements in surface transportation performance and safety for travelers; and

WHEREAS, the Council believes that it is in the best interests of the citizens of the City of Richmond to support the use of the document entitled “Richmond Connects: Richmond Strategic Multimodal Transportation Plan, July 2013,” prepared by Michael J. Baker, Jr., Inc., and Alta Planning and Design to provide guidance for the implementation of certain goals in alignment with the Vision Zero traffic safety program that promote sustainability and equity in access to safe transportation;

NOW, THEREFORE,

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF RICHMOND:

That the Council hereby supports the following goals:

1.                     Reduction of the use of private automobiles as a primary transportation mode by 50 percent within 12 years of the adoption of the Plan by promoting the use of public transportation, bicycling, walking, and other multimodal transportation for commuting.

2.                     The development and implementation of a plan, with the advice and comment of the Greater Richmond Transit Company, to increase access to public transportation in areas identified by the Department of Public Works or other City department that have a below average transit access rating.

3.                     Implementation of a requirement that the Department of Public Works publish and maintain a geographic information system map of the City’s High Injury Street Network showing areas having or projected by the Department of Public Works to have an above average number of traffic crashes resulting in fatalities and serious injuries.

4.                     Implementation of a requirement that the Department of Public Works prepare a quarterly report for the Council outlining interim goals, including speed reduction goals, which advance the  priorities in the Vision Zero traffic safety program.
