TITLE
RESOLUTION DIRECTING THE COUNTY MAYOR OR COUNTY MAYOR’S DESIGNEE TO PREPARE A FEASIBILITY REPORT RELATING TO THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN TO REDUCE PEDESTRIAN FATALITIES BY INCORPORATING COMPONENTS OF LOS ANGELES’ VISION ZERO CAMPAIGN AND PRESENT SAID REPORT TO THE COUNTY COMMISSION PURSUANT TO ORDINANCE NO. 14-65

BODY
WHEREAS, traffic and pedestrian safety is of paramount importance to the residents and visitors of Miami-Dade County; and
WHEREAS, establishing pedestrian-friendly policies promote healthy living and enhanced quality of life; and
WHEREAS, at the June 7, 2016 Board of County Commissioners meeting, the Board approved Resolution No. R-529-16 adopting the Miami-Dade Local Action Plan for Safer People, Safer Streets (“Action Plan”); and
WHEREAS, the goals of the Action Plan include adopting a “Vision Zero” policy with the goal of zero pedestrian and bicycle deaths; and
WHEREAS, Los Angeles, through its initiative entitled Vision Zero, installed, for example, a scramble crosswalk at one of its most dangerous intersections; and
WHEREAS, a scramble crosswalk is an intersection which allows pedestrians to cross in all directions, straight and diagonally, while all drivers wait; and
WHEREAS, prior to the installation of the scramble crosswalk the intersection in question averaged one accident per month, but in the six months after installation there were none; and
WHEREAS, components of Los Angeles’ Vision Zero program may be useful in reducing and ultimately eliminating pedestrian deaths in Miami-Dade County,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA, that this Board:
Section 1. Directs the County Mayor or County Mayor’s designee to prepare a feasibility report relating to the establishment of a comprehensive plan to reduce pedestrian fatalities by incorporating components of Los Angeles’ Vision Zero campaign.
Section 2. Directs the County Mayor or County Mayor’s designee to provide the requested feasibility report to the Board within 90 days of the effective date of this resolution, which shall be placed on an agenda of the Board pursuant to Ordinance No. 14-65.
