Safe Routes to School is focused on creating a safe walking and bicycling environment for children as they travel to school and was identified as a need during Imagine Kalamazoo 2025 and neighborhood planning. The City of Kalamazoo, Kalamazoo Public Schools, Michigan State University, and Michigan Fitness Foundation, will be working together to complete the Safe Routes to School planning process for Maple Middle School and Winchell Elementary School. The planning process includes surveys, walking audits, and community meetings, resulting in an action plan for each school which can then be used to apply for infrastructure and programmatic grants from the State.
