Three stakeholder meetings are scheduled in October. Choose one date and let DeNae McGee know at :

Safer walking routes for students

The Safe Streets & Sidewalks Levy is continuing to improve the walk to & from school for local students. Parents can plan a safer walking route to & from school using the pedestrian flag locations on the City website.  In the future, new projects will provide safer walks to school near NE 188th St. and Canyon Park Middle School. Many thanks to the Public Works Street crews for their work to re-stock flags and clean signs before the new school year begins.
