One of our first big pushes for getting involved will be to use an interactive map to tell us where people see problems. We’ll also have a story map that goes with it with more detailed information on our crashes and Safe Streets Pinellas in general. This will be a part of an eight-week effort to take our previously-scheduled summit virtual.
For those who are interested in not only sharing their feedback, but also spreading the word about Safe Streets Pinellas and why Vision Zero is needed in our community, we are looking for ambassadors. Ambassadors are selected on a rolling basis.
A 16-member task force is helping to guide our analysis and discussion. The task force includes representatives from the education, health, business, law enforcement, and engineering communities, among others. Each member has a unique perspective that helps us look at roadway safety differently.
We are also relying on ambassadors to help spread the word on Safe Streets Pinellas and how the community can engage with us.
