Safe Routes to School
Beginning in September 2016, the Croton-Harmon School District and Village of Croton-on-Hudson are partnering on an initiative to increase community safety for drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists. The Village will roll out a campaign entitled “Slow Down Croton,” while the School District will support the initiative through “Safe Routes to School.” This two-pronged approach intends to bring awareness to the community for the need to enhance safety measures throughout the village for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians alike with all members of the community taking responsibility for safety.
The safety initiative will begin with the following measures:
Increasing traffic enforcement throughout the Village
A presentation to Croton-Harmon students, residents and community groups
Conducting safe walks to school with Croton-Harmon students
A collaborative presentation at the September 1 Croton-Harmon Board of Education meeting and the September 6 Croton-on-Hudson Village Board of Trustees meeting
Grassroots marketing efforts by Village residents
Continued campaign efforts and events throughout the year
