Safe Routes to School Grant Application Informational Meeting
To be held prior to the regularly scheduled Orion Township Board Meeting
Date: May, 15, 2017
Location: 2525 Joslyn Road, Lake Orion within the Board Room
Overview: The Safe Routes to School Program is a federal grant program for K-8 schools. A total of nine (9) elementary and middle schools within Orion Township are to be submitting an application for this grant by the end of May 2017. Grant monies available to the school max out at $200,000 for infrastructure improvements and $8,000 in educational materials and non-infrastructure related items. This meeting will be an overview of the process that the Township, School District, and OHM Advisor’s (the Township Engineer’s) have been working on for the past several months as a team. The application process has included public outreach through surveys, walking audits of each campus, priority planning with all involved parties, and this final public meeting. We hope that you will join us to see what each campus is applying for and to ask any questions you may have about the program!
