Claremont Safe Routes to School
The Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Regional Planning Commission (UVLSRPC) provided technical assistance to the City of Claremont and the Claremont School District to aid in developing Safe Routes to School travel plans for the three elementary schools. Safe Routes to School (SRTS) has been a movement to encourage and enable school children (grades K to 8) to safely walk and ride bicycles to school. Municipal and school leaders recognize the importance of getting kids outside and active in their efforts to counteract a declining number of students walking or riding bicycles to school.
The SRTS Comprehensive Travel Plans identify barriers to walking and biking to school and summarize strategies for overcoming those barriers. The process of developing the Travel Plan followed the standard established by the national SRTS initiative: Evaluation, Education, Encouragement, Enforcement, and Engineering. This report details the findings for each of these “5 Es” based on standardized surveys, community outreach, parent input, focus group surveys, and School District and City input. The Task Force initiative to develop this Travel Plan has resulted in many substantive and realistic recommendations for the School District and the community.
UVLSRPC Staff have assisted with the following Travel Plans:
- Disnard Elementary School Travel Plan (2012)
- Bluff Elementary School Travel Plan (2012)
- Maple Avenue Elementary School Travel Plan (2012)
The Claremont SRTS Task Force, a group of representatives from the School District and City Staff, continues to seek ways to enhance and encourage student health and welfare throughout the School District by promoting walking and bicycling to school, as well as working to develop a safe and reliable pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure for the City.
