Safe Routes to School
Safe Routes to School is a federal program that assists localities with the construction and maintenance of sidewalks and other trails that help students walk or cycle to their school. It is administered locally by the Alliance for Community Choice in Transportation.
|An article on Wikipedia has information about Safe Routes to School in areas beyond Albemarle County's borders.|
Albemarle County received a $190,000 grant in 2010 for road and sidewalk improvements to access Crozet Elementary School and the Field School. It will be constructed in early 2012 if plans are finished by then. 
This will build a path from 11th Street to Venable School. 
This will add new sidewalks to make it safer for children to walk to the school.
