City of Watsonville Approves Complete Streets to Schools Plan
The City of Watsonville Complete Streets to Schools Plan has recently been unanimously approved by the Watsonville City Council and the Pajaro Valley Unified School District (PVUSD) Board, wrapping up a two-year planning process. The Plan was a partnership between the City of Watsonville, County Public Health, PVUSD, and Ecology Action. It was funded through a Caltrans Sustainable Communities Transportation Planning grant. The Plan includes recommendations for infrastructure improvements and programmatic changes at 15 Watsonville schools, with the goal of improving safety for families that are walking and biking to school and encouraging more active transportation trips. It will be used by the City of Watsonville and PVUSD to prioritize future improvements around schools and to secure grant funding for project construction.
The Complete Streets Plan-Safe Routes to School is being funded by SB1.
