Safe Routes to School Study


In 2019, the Fargo-Moorhead Metropolitan Council of Governments (Metro COG) is working with the City of Fargo to create a Safe Routes to School plan. The goal of Safe Routes to School (SRTS) plans and programs is to increase the number of students walking and biking to school through encouragement and education programs, as well as physical improvements to streets and sidewalks.


The 2019 Fargo SRTS Plan will recommend how to make walking and biking to school easier, safer and more comfortable for students and families. Recommended improvements will be made for all elementary and middle schools within the City of Fargo including Fargo Public Schools, West Fargo Public Schools, and Private Schools.


In the upcoming months, there will be a number of exciting activities involving the school community. Parent and caregiver surveys will be sent home (either electronically or hard copy) to gather valuable insight from families about walking and biking to school. Later in the spring, project staff and other members of the school community will be visiting each school to observe arrival and dismissal and assess walking and biking conditions near schools. There will also be four public open houses held around the City to talk about the project and learn more from the community.


Please contact your school principal if you'd like to be involved. You can learn more at the project website: http://www.fmmetrocog.org/projects-rfps/fargo-safe-routes-school-plan
