ARDENWALD’S SRTS ACTION PLAN HAS BEEN SUBMITTED!
What does that mean? It means we receive the 2K mini-grant funds we were previously awarded to implement improvement strategies within our action plan. It also means we’re eligible to receive training and technical assistance in implementing our action plan strategies and also eligible for even more grant funds! We’re on our way to a safer, healthier, and more relaxing environment around our school and community.

HELP MAKE OUR STREETS AND COMMUNITY SAFER!
The City of Milwaukie is excited to work with schools throughout the district to support Safe Routes to Schools. Bike and pedestrian safety is a high priority for our city and neighborhood. We’ve developed and and are beginning to implement our safety action plan and are looking for interested parents to volunteer and work with the Ardenwald Neighborhood District Association and the Public Safety Advisory Committee to accomplish the following goals:
- Improve safety around school property
- Improve safety for major street crossings
- Reduce barriers for walking, biking or bussing to school
The action plan is in place and will need to be maintained annually. The Safe Routes to School Action Plan is an important tool to attract funding for implementing transportation and safety projects. There are many benefits for kids & families to walk or bike to school – please join our efforts!
