Mesa Seeks Community Input for Comprehensive Road Safety Action Plan

May 6, 2024 at 3:01 pm

The City of Mesa is launching an online, interactive survey as part of the Spring 2024 Community Touchpoint for its Comprehensive Road Safety Action Plan. The City is creating the plan to advance its commitment to create safer streets for everyone who lives, works or plays in our vibrant community.

On average, four people are tragically killed or seriously injured on Mesas roadways every week, said Sabine King, Supervising Engineer. These crashes are avoidable, and this Action Plan will be a crucial step forward in achieving our goal of a 30% reduction in fatalities and serious injuries by 2030.

The Comprehensive Safety Action Plan (Action Plan) evaluates the most important contributing factors in fatal and serious crashes using public input and data-driven analysis.

The Action Plan will serve as a framework for enhancing safety in Mesa by identifying strategies and projects and building a community culture of safety. Solutions could include safety planning and education, street design and reconstruction projects and policy and operational changes.

The City is seeking broad public participation in the development of the Action Plan. Residents are encouraged to:
Take a survey: Share your thoughts and experiences on Mesas roadways at
Identify safety concerns: Pinpoint locations on a map where you feel unsafe on Mesas streets.
Sign up for updates: Stay informed about the Action Plans progress and future engagement opportunities.
Spread the word: Share this information with your family, friends, neighbors and colleagues.

We believe that everyone has a role to play in creating a culture of safety on our streets, said R.J. Zeder, Transportation Department Director. By working together, we can make Mesas roadways safer for all.
