    Traffic Safety

    Since your school is located on unincorporated county land, I am asking for your help in soliciting public input about transportation safety concerns on unincorporated county roads. Contra Costa County recently adopted a Vision Zero goal which aims to eliminate fatal and serious traffic collisions on county-owned roadways. The first step in developing a strategy is to gather public input, and an interactive map has been created to allow community members to identify and make comments about specific areas of concern.


    Please share the Contra Costa County Vision Zero webpage: with your school community.


    Thank you,


    Kirsten Riker
