Safe Routes to School Grant Funds Sidewalk Improvements

May 2, 2015 | Community News, Vineland

NJPHK-Vineland (NJPHK-V) and its partners are celebrating a Safe Routes to School grant with far-reaching potential. The $275,000 grant will be used to improve the infrastructure around Gloria M. Sabater Elementary School making the environment safer for walkers and bikers.

Located in the city of Vineland, Sabater has the most walkers of the nine Vineland schools. The school has been a proponent of walk and bike to school days. Now, Vineland city engineers will add curbing, sidewalks and other improvements to the environment surrounding the school, which will ease the way for students.

Vineland was one of 24 New Jersey municipalities that received a Safe Routes to School (SRTS) grant totaling, $275,000 from the state of New Jersey.

“We are thrilled to be selected as one of the recipients of the Safe Route to School Grant,” said Lisa Scheetz, project manager of NJPHK-V, “Being awarded this grant is another great milestone in the movement towards becoming a safer, healthier and more active community.”
