Vision Zero Action Plan presented in Virtual Town Hall

The Maui Metropolitan Planning Organization’s Vision Zero Maui initiative is launching its draft action plan for public review. The plan will be presented at a virtual town hall via Zoom on Thursday, Feb. 25 at 4 p.m. Registration is free at mauimpo.org.

Together with partners County of Maui and the Healthy Eating Active Living Coalition, the public presentation is the culmination of a year-long process of a wide range of engagement tools and strategies to inform and solicit feedback on roadway safety concerns and opportunities. 

“We have analyzed the data we’ve gathered and look forward to sharing seven Vision Zero priorities from the draft plan,” said Lauren Armstrong, Executive Director of Maui MPO. “We hope you can all join us at the town hall because this collective effort is community-driven.”

The seven priorities are:

  • Eliminate impaired driving
  • Create safe speeds
  • Eliminate distracted driving
  • Create a safety culture
  • Build safe streets for everyone
  • Institutionalize vision zero
  • Improve data to support decisions

With Vision Zero Maui, the only acceptable number of traffic fatalities and serious injuries is zero. Go to mauimpo.org to download the full draft and to register for the virtual town hall.
