A Safe Routes to School Action Plan meeting will be held 6:30 to 7 p.m. Thurs. Nov. 14 at Newport Intermediate School, 825 NE 7th St. in Newport. Refreshments will be provided. All parents and guardians, teachers, staff and community members are invited.
The purpose of this meeting is to generate ideas for a Safe Routes to School Action Plan that addresses goals, activities, and challenges related to biking and walking to school. While this plan is focused on Newport Intermediate, community input is crucial, and can help lay the groundwork for similar work in other local schools.
Creating the Action Plan can make Newport Intermediate eligible for future funding and resources, from the state Safe Routes to School program and other sources. For more information about the Safe Routes program statewide, visit www.oregonsaferoutes.org.
