The Office of the County Executive (CEX) is seeking a Program Manager II to coordinate the Vision Zero initiative. Montgomery County launched the Vision Zero Two-Year Action plan on November 1, 2017. The action plan sets an ambitious target of lowering severe and fatal crashes for all roadway users (drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and cyclists) in the County by 35% in 2019 and eliminating them by 2030.
