Safe Routes To School Progress
Progress is continuing on the Safe Routes to School project toward bringing significant funding to the Grass Lake area to enhance and expand walking/biking areas for our students. The purpose is to promote healthy lifestyles with our students by promoting walking and riding bikes to school.
The information being shared is just that, information. More design work is being discussed. We are working with the 5 Healthy Towns Foundation and Michigan State University to refine our plans, and we are being led by 5HF’s Matt Pegouskie to procure over $350,000 to complete this proposal to the Michigan Department of Transportation. As we progress, we will keep you informed of upcoming meetings.
Go to http://bit.ly/1SabE2V and then click on “Grass Lake Safe Routes to School Meeting Documents” to see the work that has been completed. Some of these files are rather large and may take some time to open.
These documents include renderings of additional sidewalks, bicycle racks and architectural designs.
