Be Active Safe Routes

In Lawrence and Douglas County, the Be Active Safe Routes program is a comprehensive approach to make neighborhoods safe and accessible for EVERYONE. In addition to improving safety, Be Active Safe Routes benefits communities by reducing traffic congestion and air pollution, increasing the opportunity to be physically active and building community cohesion.

Be Active Safe Routes is possible because of many partnerships within the community all working toward one common goal: safe routes for all. 

Parents are invited to provide feedback to Douglas County school districts on routes and the Safe Routes planning process. Be Active Safe Routes representatives will host a feedback table at parent-teacher conferences in Eudora on Oct. 16-17 and in Baldwin City on Oct. 23-24.

There is parent survey available now for parents in Eudora and Baldwin City. Parents can complete the survey for your district here:

In Lawrence there will be a Be Active Safe Routes Open House will be from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 14, at the Flory Building of the Douglas County Fairgrounds, 2120 Harper St., in Lawrence. Feedback from these open houses will be utilized in the citywide Safe Routes to School Plans in Lawrence, Eudora and Baldwin City to set priorities for implementation.
