Clara Byrd Baker Elementary School students and parents bundle up for a walk to school in the crisp autumn air.

Safe Routes to School in collaboration with James City County’s Planning Department will host a community meeting on December 4, 2017 from 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm  regarding the Transportation Alternatives federal grant application submitted recently.

Community members will be provided with a review of preliminary studies and conceptual designs, the opportunity to discuss the proposal, and to pose questions. Clara Byrd Baker Elementary School is WJCC’s most recent Safe Routes to School target site. Grant funds were requested to address infrastructure concerns affecting ADA compliance and that limit walking and biking to school safely. Parents and other community stakeholders are invited to attend.
