Why do we prioritize active partnerships?
Government, businesses, developers, community organizations, residents and visitors are all partners in achieving our transportation goals. The City and our agency partners hold in trust the public right of way (often referred to as streets), which comprises 22% of the available land area.1 The City has a commitment to Vision Zero and Complete Streets, and we need to work with our partners to create a more seamless transportation system that allows people to use streets as routes, places and destinations – no matter which governmental agency manages the right of way.
We know that creating change and reaching our goals takes more than just writing a plan. It takes years of work and years of partnership. To achieve our goals we need many people to join the conversation, to help design the solution, and to try something new.
