This Wednesday: Newark Safe Routes to School Stakeholder Meeting

Approximately 40 percent of households in Newark, NJ do not own a vehicle, contributing to the city’s high rate of students who walk to school. Through the federal Safe Routes to School non-infrastructure grant program, and under the guidance of Meadowlink, local community groups are partnering with select schools in Newark to create safer, more walkable neighborhoods for school-aged children and the larger community:

La Casa de Don Pedro and Horton School and McKinley School
Ironbound Community Corporation and Hawkins School
Urban League of Essex County and 13th Ave School, Sussex School and Camden Street School

The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, November 5 from 10 a.m. until 11:30 a.m at the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority office, which is easily walkable from Newark Penn Station.
