May 2018 – Our 56th St Vision Zero Corridor event in April was a huge success! Dozens of King High School students, elected officials, and other community members came out to raise awareness along the corridor. As part of the event, volunteers wearing (FREE!) green shirts waved signs along the corridor to raise awareness with messages like “Don’t Be Next!” and “Phones Down!” It was a fun and eye-opening experience for all who were involved. A huge thank you to King High School and the Hillsborough County School District, the City of Temple Terrace, FDOT, CUTR at USF, and the Council on American-Islamic Relations for their support of the 56th St event!
Up next: Sunday, May 20 from 1 – 4pm, 15th St between 122nd Ave & 127th Ave | The Hillsborough MPO, Vision Zero Coalition, and University Area CDC invite you to participate in an interactive, safety awareness-raising event. Activities include: pop-up chalk crosswalks, pop-up sidewalks, creating an intersection mural, a FREE bike light installation station, and arts and crafts for kids. Plus, there are more FREE bright green Vision Zero shirts for the first 100 volunteers!
