City Plans Program on 'Safe Routes to Schools'

NOVEMBER 2, 2006 - Posted at 4:29 p.m. CST

 

JONESBORO, AR - The Arkansas State Highway & Transportation Department, in association with the Jonesboro Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) will host an outreach session later this month to inform community leaders, parents, and schools of a possible funding opportunity available to assist the community in developing successful Safe Routes to Schools (SRTS).

The SRTS program's goal is to provide safe environments for children in grades Kindergarten through eight to bicycle and walk to schools.  The federal share of funding the program is 100 percent.  However, applicants will be responsible for obtaining right-of-way for infrastructure projects with non-federal funds.

The program is set for November 20 at 5:30 p.m. at the Allen Park Community Center at 3609 Race Street. 

Additional information on the Safe Routes to Schools program is available on the Web at www.saferoutesinfo.org.
