Engagement Forms Available at Central Library

For those who were not able to engage online, we set up a kiosk  at the Central Library pick-up location. We provided paper copies of the engagement form in English and Spanish for community members to take home, review, and then send feedback via mail. We included an addressed and stamped envelope to help with return, too.

Public Engagement Checkpoint #2: Learning from Your Experiences

Our second public engagement checkpoint for the Vision Zero Action Plan concluded on October 30, 2020. This conversation focused on learning from your experiences. Staff have reviewed the feedback we received, and put together this summary.

Engagement Summary – Checkpoint #2

County staff have also completed analysis of crash reports, and we learned a lot about where and how collisions occur.

See What We Learned

But we know it’s not the whole story. To take action on safety issues before crashes occur, we asked the people who travel in Arlington every day.

Here’s how we collected feedback in the second public engagement checkpoint:

Virtual Public Meetings

We hosted two public engagement meetings for you to learn more, ask questions about our crash analysis work, and help build our shared knowledge about transportation safety.
