Hello BA community.

SR2S Audit Thursday, April 11
As part of Brittan Acres’ on-going efforts to improve safety coming and going from school, we will be undergoing an audit of our walking, scooting/biking, and driving routes. Funding for this work comes from a San Mateo County “Safe Routes to School Project” (SR2S).  The audit will begin this Thursday morning at 7:45, when two Alta Engineering consultants will observe our morning commute.

I invite you to please join us for a “walk audit” starting at 8:20 at the flagpole. The consultants will walk us around our immediate neighborhood, taking note of what works and what doesn’t in terms of safe access for our families coming and going from school.

Then, 9:15-10:15 we will meet in the MUR and share other information that we may already be aware of in our own neighborhoods. You can join us then, even if you don’t walk with us—this is an excellent opportunity to make your concerns known, and be sure they are included in the study.

In the end, Alta Engineering will generate a report along with recommendations. We will provide feedback for the report, and then they will produce route maps by the end of June, 2013. Ideally we will be able to design parent education and roll out the route maps before school begins in the fall—improving the commute for all of us. The report will also be very useful when applying for future grants.

Best wishes for a safe commute this morning,
John Triska
