Safe Routes to School Community Meeting for the Southeast Neighborhood


1936936_135745414856_6181707_nThe Eugene Safe Routes to School program is working on Action Plans that look at different ways to improve the walking and biking environment for students throughout the Southeast region. We are engaging Spencer Butte Middle School, Edgewood Elementary, Charlemagne Elementary, and Ridgeline Montessori parents, staff, and students to create their Action Plans while Camas Ridge will be updating their existing plan. We would also like to talk to the broader community about ways to improve the active transportation options for families in the Southeast region.

A community meeting to discuss Safe Routes to School and active transportation issues will be held February 25th at 5:30 pm at Spencer Butte Middle School. There will be a brief presentation on the SRTS program and existing conditions followed by a community input session that will help us address the top active transportation priorities for community members in the region. This meeting is hosted by the Eugene School District Transporation Department’s Safe Routes to School Program in partnership with the City of Eugene Public Works.
