Edmonton is planning for its future – to grow into a healthy city of 2 million people and a neighbourly city with community and personal wellness that embodies and promotes equity for all Edmontonians. Transformational change is needed to bring this vision to life. Traffic safety is at the heart of supporting a healthy city, livable urban places, and a prosperous regional economy.
As part of this, the City is looking at places where lowering speed limits can create safe, livable streets for everyone. Reducing residential speeds can make our streets calmer, quieter, and safer for people walking, biking, driving and enjoying their neighbourhood.
Safe, livable streets will help us reach our goal of Vision Zero; zero traffic related fatalities and serious injuries in Edmonton.
