Safe Routes to School

Long Lake Township is partnering with Norte! and the school communities of Westwoods and Long Lake Elementaries to seek grant funding from Safe Routes to Schools.  The grant will help add infrastructure and programming to make it more safe (and fun) for students to walk or bike to school. We will be hosting a workshop on Friday, June 1st at the Long Lake Township Hall from 4:30 until 5:30.  Help us identify potential infrastructure improvements as we move along in this process.

All are welcome, materials and snacks provided.  Please register through this link: https://elgruponorte.org/theme_event/safe-routes-to-school-in-long-lake-lets-action-plan/

Elementary students and their parents can complete a required survey through this link. https://elgruponorte.org/longlake/surveys/
