Tampa is committed to implementing outcome-driven, strategic investments that are based on data and equity.

At its core, equity is defined as distributing resources proportional to need. Centering Vision Zero in equity allows the city to prioritize investment in areas that need it most.

The group will continue to provide a measure of accountability as the Vision Zero Action Plan is implemented.
