In 2023, the Charlotte County-Punta Gorda Metropolitan Planning Organization (CC-PG MPO) secured a $262,000 federal Safe Streets for All (SS4A) grant to address serious transportation safety concerns in Charlotte County. These funds are being utilized to cover the cost of coordinated Vision Zero or Comprehensive Safety Action Plans, with the goal of reducing traffic fatalities and severe injuries and creating safer roads for citizens and visitors alike.

By taking a strong leadership role in supporting Vision Zero, setting ambitious goals for reducing traffic fatalities, and holding ourselves and others accountable for achieving these goals, Task Force members can help to create a culture of safety in our communities.
