Save the date for upcoming Safe Routes to Schools meetings

Posted on November 5, 2018 at 4:53 pm by Peter Ibrahim

Please join the City next week in learning more and providing feedback about the creation of the citywide Safe Routes to Schools program. There are two options of meeting dates and locations next week that will cover the same content.

Meeting option #1:
Tuesday, November 13, 2018, 6–8 p.m.
Hillview Middle School Library
1100 Elder Ave.

Meeting option #2 (Spanish translator on-site):
Wednesday, November 14, 2018, 6–8 p.m.
Menlo Park Senior Center
100 Terminal Ave.

Feedback from the community is greatly appreciated and critical to developing a program that will benefit children throughout the City by adapting it to each school’s community. Each meeting will cover Safe Routes to School topics, and will include opportunities for participants to learn more, ask questions and give feedback. Light refreshments will be provided at both meetings. 

Goals of this program include:
  • Getting children to school safely by promoting biking and walking 
  • Developing a comprehensive curriculum to instill basic safety skills at an elementary school age
  • Offering resources for both public and private schools to help promote alternatives for getting children to school other than driving
For those unable to attend, feedback can be sent to the City’s Transportation Demand Management Coordinator Nicholas Yee. Materials from the meeting will be available on the project’s webpage after November 14.
