Newton_Safe_Routes

Do your kids have safe routes to school?  Where are the danger points?  On National Walk/Bike to School Day Wednesday, Oct 7, your kids and you can help a fledgling effort to create a Newton-wide Safe Routes to School map, complete with posted wayfinding routes.  A mockup of hypothetical middle school safe routes (the green lines) is shown in the figure above (red lines are school boundaries).  Red X’s indicate unsafe spots/crossings that make an otherwise safe route unsafe.  Test out this map or create your own route, and share your experiences here.  And if you want to have extra fun, join us for an art build on Friday, Oct 2, 7-8:30pm at the Auburndale Community Library.  We’ll be making signage to promote Walk to School Wednesday.
