Neighbourhood Street Safety
Street Safety Survey Data is In!
Thank you to everyone who filled out our Neighbourhood Street Safety Survey! We received over 1500 responses from 117 Community Leagues. Take a look at our online report to find out what we heard (download the PDF here).
Residential Speeds Review Update:
City Council has directed Administration to consider:
- A city-wide default speed limit of 40 km/h on both local residential and collector roadways
- A default speed limit of 30 km/h on local residential roadways in high density neighbourhoods located in central Edmonton, which is being referred to as the Core Zone
Administration will return to City Council in February 2020 to present different scenarios for neighbourhood speed reductions, based on the above direction from Council.
Have you Read our Handbook Yet?
To help Community Leagues understand the potential changes and be able to talk to their communities about them, we developed the Neighbourhood Street Safety Handbook.
Inside you'll find information about:
- Statistics - an overview of the progress we've made since Edmonton adopted Vision Zero
- Advancing the Vision - three essential steps we still need to take to realize the vision
- Roadway Classifications - a brief refresher on the definitions the City uses to classify relevant roads
- Design Interventions - the difference between permanent and semi-permanent infrastructure and examples of both
- FAQ - a brief overview of questions that come up a lot in these discussions
