The Safe Routes to Schools program is intended to encourage more children to walk or bike to school by providing safer routes. The City is currently working on two such projects:
- Richards School – construction of a new trail along Par 3 Drive from Rocky Ford Road to the school.
- Parkside School – construction of a new trail on the northeast side of the school to allow students to avoid crossing vehicular traffic.
Construction of the project is expected to begin late in 2013.
