Bike Walk Knoxville works to improve biking and walking opportunities in the Knoxville community. We work to make sure all ages and abilities in the community have safe and accessible streets for walking and biking.
Bike Walk Knoxville is thrilled to announce that City Council passed a Vision Zero resolution on October 19! This resolution is a significant milestone in bringing the number of fatalities and serious injuries on our roadways down to zero, and we are so proud of the Knoxville community for making this important commitment.
We look forward to collaborating with the City Council, Mayor Kincannon and her administration, City departments, and residents from our community to establish a Vision Zero Working Group. The purpose of this Working Group will be to generate a Vision Zero Action Plan that outlines strategies, targets, and timelines to reduce traffic fatalities and injuries on our roadways. The Working Group will also oversee implementation through collaborative engineering, enforcement, education, and policy-based efforts.
Vision Zero is a proven strategy to bring down the number of deaths and serious injuries on our streets. Bike Walk Knoxville would like to congratulate and thank the City Council, Mayor Kincannon and her administration for their support of Vision Zero and making the monumental commitment to bring the number of traffic fatalities and serious injuries down to zero. If you would like to stay informed about Vision Zero and the important work Bike Walk Knoxville is doing to make our community a safer place to walk and bike, follow us on social media and join our mailing list!
We had an amazing time on our tour with elected officials! We were joined by several members of City Council, including Charles Thomas (District 5), Janet Testerman (At Large Seat B), and Amelia Parker (At Large Seat C). Several candidates in the upcoming City Primary Election also attended, including Seema Singh (District 3), Lauren Rider (District 4), Jen McMahon (District 4), and Deidra Harper (District 6).
