B&N led the planning process for Safe Streets Clinton County, a local agency safety plan for Clinton County, OH. This was the first local safety plan in Ohio and one of the first in the country to be organized around the Safe System Approach principles and elements. The plan still utilized a traditional safety planning process, including a stakeholder committee, public and stakeholder engagement, crash and roadway data analysis, emphasis area selection, countermeasures identification, action plan development and implementation. However, each of those activities was modified to focus on cross-cutting solutions framed around safe roads, safe road users, safe speeds, post-crash care, equity and safety culture. This plan and planning process did not focus on a new way to approach safety – it was more intentional about framing the content around the Safe System Approach elements. This safety plan complied with the Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) program enabling Clinton County to chase SS4A implementation funding on future cycles.
