City Council Member Matt Pitzer will meet with citizens of Columbia’s 5th Ward Wednesday night to discuss what comes next for the Vision Zero Program.

Vision Zero is a transportation strategy designed to eliminate all traffic-related deaths and serious injuries in Columbia by 2030. This is the final in a series of meetings in each city’s six wards. The city began to implement Vision Zero in 2016.

Pitzer says that these town hall meeting will inform future changes.

“One of the initial steps of that plan, of that outline, was having these town halls in every ward and soliciting citizen input on feedback on some ideas that they may have.”

Changes in 2018 will include the construction of safer roundabouts at key intersections. The meeting will be held Wednesday at Gentry Middle School at 6 p.m.
