Safe Routes to School Program

In consultation with Atla Planning + Design of Saratoga Springs, NY, UCTC originally completed three Safe Routes to School Action Plans for the Village/Town of New Paltz (New Paltz CSD), Town of Lloyd (Highland CSD) and Town of Shawangunk (Wallkill CSD) for selected locations in each school district. Based upon the experiences creating the action plans, a Safe Routes to School Tool box has been developed to serve as a resource for other municipalities in Ulster County and New York State. This tool box incorporates lessons learned from the three pilot communities and provides tips for creating and maintaining a school- or community-based SRTS program. Two additional action plans were completed for Saugerties and Marlborough in 2016.
