Plan: Safe Routes to School

Safe Routes to School
Plan Grant

The Village of DeForest, Village of Windsor and DeForest Area School District submitted a grant to the DOT last year to create a Safe Routes to School Plan.  The grant was successful.  The plan is complete and available by clicking the link at the bottom of this page.

The goal of Safe Routes to School is to increase walking and biking to school.   The plan conducts safety audits at Eagle Point, Windsor, and Yahara Elementary Schools, along with the DeForest Area Middle School.  As you browse the plan you will find school specific and community wide recommendations aimed at increasing walking and biking to school.

Implementation of the plan will take place on several fronts.  Some recommendations are best suited to be advanced at the individual school level while others are best to executed at the community level.
