What are your concerns about street safety?

redlightspeedingNYC DOT is encouraging New Yorkers to make comments on street safety issues on the Vision Zero interactive map, by July 31.

The map, built with OpenPlans’ Shareabouts tool, has garnered 5,900 suggestions and 7,500 comments on locations in all five boroughs. After July 31, residents will no longer be able to add new feedback, but the site will remain online as part of the city’s Vision Zero portal. NYC DOT will be analyzing the comments for inclusion in its project planning over the next several years.

Everyone else will see these new features live on OpenPlans.org soon. If your city is doing a project and wants to use OpenPlans, talk to us!
