City Councilmember Amy Brendmoen and Washington Technology Magnet School Principal Mike McCollor decided to conduct a community driven process to create a Safe Routes to School plan for improvements for students walking and biking to school.

The grant request included crosswalk improvements, sidewalk infill, signage, and shortening crossings along Rice Street and Arlington Ave with bump outs.
