Is your child’s route to school dangerous?

Here’s how to let the city know if you have concerns about the safety of your child(ren) as they walk or ride their bike to school, we need your help!

The City has funds available to make traffic and safety improvements to our area, but we need your voice in order to help get to get our elementary schools and neighborhood at the front of the line for funding!

We kindly ask you to do TWO things:

1) Please enter your child’s route on this map, along with any concern areas.
