Memorial Safe Routes to Schools Project – A $210,375 grant was obtained through the state’s Safe Routes to Schools Program in 2010 to provide 4,125 feet of new sidewalks in the neighborhood surrounding Memorial Elementary School. Construction will begin in 2015, following completion of the city’s Chautauqua Park storm sewer project, currently in the first year of a 2 year construction schedule. The sidewalks will be installed after the stormwater project in order to avoid disruption from the excavation required for installation of the new sewers. The new segments of sidewalk to be installed by this project are shown in red in the exhibit below. Click here for a larger image.
