Articles About safe routes to school
Two construction projects now underway in Yellow Springs aim to make the village safer for walkers.
For Walk to School Day last Wednesday, Mills Lawn Students were encouraged to get themselves to school under their own power.
Village children will more safely walk or bike to school within the next year, thanks to a collaborative effort between local citizens and Village government.
At its Nov. 15 meeting, members of Village Council unanimously endorsed the Safe Routes to School Travel Plan, or SRTS, that will be submitted soon to the Ohio Department of Transportation, or ODOT, for possible funding.
At their Sept. 8 meeting, members of Village Council continued an earlier discussion regarding how the Village should best approach economic development. At issue was a motion by Council President Judith Hempfling that Council establish an economic sustainability committee. Council did not take action at the meeting due to concerns from Council members Kathryn Van der Heiden and Karen Wintrow that Council’s new economic sustainability staff person, who has not yet been hired, should be on the job before an advisory group is established.
At the Aug. 13 Yellow Springs Board of Education meeting, District Treasurer Joy Kitzmiller announced a steep decline in this year’s second quarter income tax revenues.
