Safe Routes to School Plan

               

Eagle Point High School will participate in a Safe Routes to School Walk Audit and Community Meeting on Wednesday, October 30th.

Eagle Point High School recently received funding from the Oregon Department of Transportation Safe Routes to School Project Identification Process (PIP). The funding is for creating a Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Plan to identify how to improve streets near the school to support families in getting to school safely. The SRTS Plan will also outline opportunities for education and encouragement events to promote walking and biking to school. Planners from Alta Planning + Design, active transportation planning consulting firm, will be leading the planning process.

The Eagle Point High School Walk Audit will identify the walking and biking opportunities and challenges around the school area. Alta planners, school leadership, roadway authority representatives, and family members will document conditions that may discourage walking and biking to school, and work to identify solutions to these challenges.  

The Eagle Point High School Walk Audit will begin at 7:15 AM at the flagpole in front of the school. Students, parents, teachers, and other community members are invited to participate. Following the walk audit, there will be a community meeting at 8:00 AM in the Main Gym to brainstorm improvements for walking and biking to school and discuss opportunities for SRTS education and encouragement.

Additionally, Eagle Point High School asks families to share feedback and experiences getting to school using the online input tool. The interactive online tool can be found here: odotsrtsprojectid.com
