to fund safe streets for kids.
Last month Metro postponed the vote on how to allocate millions of dollars that could make streets safe for kids. They are voting on Thursday, May 19th. Take action Today!
The current proposal would dedicate $3.5 million over three years to Safe Routes to School education programs and street projects around schools that need it most. This is a great start and your support got us here. However, there are competing demands to take more funding for highway expansion, which just increases traffic and congestion. We want our kids’ safety to take priority. Tell Metro we need $5 million in dedicated funding for safe streets for kids.
