MAP and SRTS are partnering up again!
On Thursday, December 11th the Michigan Association of Planning (MAP) in partnership with the Michigan Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Program, is launching the 6th annual Transportation Bonanza! This multidisciplinary event will be held at the Lansing Center and brings together professionals from planning, education, transportation, health, engineering, natural resource and environmental protection, architecture, landscape architecture—and more—to mobilize around the topic of community building for health and accessibility.
Safe Routes to School (SR2S) is an international movement—and now a federal program—to make it safe, convenient and fun for children to bicycle and walk to school. When routes are safe, walking or biking to and from school is an easy way to get the regular physical activity children need for good health. Safe Routes to School initiatives also help ease traffic jams and air pollution, unite neighborhoods and contribute to students’ readiness to learn in school.
