About the Project
We have spent much of 2015 developing a Safe Routes to School planning document (Plan) that will aid both Pierce County and the school districts within the urban, unincorporated areas of the county to improve school walking routes. This Plan was developed in cooperation with the Bethel, Franklin Pierce, and Puyallup School Districts.

Key components of the Plan include school district data such as designated walking routes and enrollment information, prioritized lists of projects, project cost, potential funding sources, and identification of potential barriers and risks to successful project implementation. The Plan will guide future coordinated efforts such as grant applications to improve school walking route facilities. The projects listed within the Plan are not recommended for funding at this time, they are simply included for planning purposes.

Through a commitment to ongoing communication and a team approach, we can work together to minimize risk to children as they travel to school. Improved safety, reduced congestion, cleaner air, healthier children and overall reduced costs are all benefits Pierce County citizens stand to gain.
