Douglas County Safe Routes to School Plan

The Western Nevada Safe Routes to School Program is developing the Douglas County Safe Routes to School Plan in partnership with Douglas County, the Douglas County School District, and the Nevada Department of Transportation. The purpose of the plan is to improve the safety of students walking and bicycling to school. The outcome of the plan will be a list of construction projects to improve student transportation safety that can be implemented by partner agencies.

The draft Douglas County Safe Routes to School Action Plan is available for public review and comment. The purpose of the plan is to identify transportation projects to help improve the safety of children walking and biking to school.  Development of this plan involved extensive research and interaction with the community to better understand the needs and concerns around each school campus. This work included in-person and virtual public meetings, visiting each school to document current conditions, and meeting with school principals and staff.  As part of the planning process, we are asking parents, teachers, students, and other interested residents to provide feedback on the proposed recommendations.

You can find information about the draft plan recommendations in several ways:
