SITKA - A Safe Routes To School meeting will meet from 2-4 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 20, at the Sitka School District office conference room at Keet Gooshi Heen Elementary School.
The work group meeting will be led by Sitka's local Safe Routes To School coordinator, Chris Bryner, and will focus on a plan to improve the safety of roads, sidewalks and trails near Sitka schools. This plan will be submitted to the state's Safe Routes To School program later this spring for funding consideration.
The meeting is open to the public and participation is welcome. For more information, call Chris at 747-5055 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org. This work is part of the Walkability Analysis project from the 2008 Sitka Health Summit and more information can be found at www.sitkahealthsummit.org/ and clicking the Walkability project link in the left column.
