On October 25th 2022, the Boca Raton City Council approved a resolution designating Boca Raton as a “Vision Zero City”. This made Boca the 11th Palm Beach County city officially joining the program and committing to the goal of “no severe traffic injuries or fatalities”. Recognizing this is a large effort and the Boca City Staff has limited resources and budgets, BocaFirst launched its Vision Zero Project as a way to use the expertise, experience and energy of BocaFirst volunteers and provide resident input to the Citizen’s Pedestrian and Bike Board. This section of BocaFirst.org is an index to our projects and resources.
Our goal is to advocate for a Better Bike Friendly Boca. You can join our list of volunteer advocates by subscribing to our instant email Better Bike Friendly Boca Advocate list on this page or our home page. This is in addition to our monthly newsletter of BocaFirst articles.
