Safe Routes to School Grant Approved in New Haven

Grant funding was approved to build a side walk in New Haven. The proposed project would provide a safe route to school for kids walking from highway 100 to the high school and middle school building. According to City Administrator Steve Roth, The need for the sidewalk couldn’t be more apparent with kids either sharing the road with cars and busses or walking in the grass. This is the second time the city applied for the grant which will cover 100 percent of the 74 thousand 800 dollar price tag. The first time the grant was applied for, it included a side walk to the elementary school with a significantly larger asking price but the city decided to address that problem by including it with the Miller Street phase two project. Roth says he would like for construction to take place over the summer so the side walk would be in place by the beginning of next school year.

There are few things more inspiring in life than watching an octogenarain with two hip replacements swimming a 200 yard race, or guys in their late 70's playing some pretty vigorous 3 on 3 basketball. A generation of baby boomers is learning that, while they can't reverse age, they certainly can embrace life!
