Safe Routes Grant
The Borough is seeking a grant for expansion of the municipality’s Safe Routes to School efforts, an ongoing project that seeks to continuously improve the safety and walkability of our town for the children and the entire community. Several community organizations wrote letters of support including the Green Team and Merchantville School. The New Jersey Safe Routes Program is a statewide initiative with a mission to partner with schools and communities to prioritize and implement opportunities for people to walk, bike, or travel by other wheeled devices. By focusing on improvements to support active travel by youth, we believe we can create conditions that are safe, healthy, equitable, and appealing for all.
