The Central Shenandoah Planning District Commission will be hosting one of the Safe Routes to School Workshops offered by the Virginia Department of Transportation on April 24 at Virginia Regional Transit, 51 Ivy Ridge Lane in Fishersville.
The four-hour workshop will provide information for both new and existing programs. Addressing the Virginia SRTS theme Learn it. Live It. Do It., the workshop will give details on how to apply for either a QuickStart Mini-grant or develop a SRTS Plan to use for a larger non-infrastructure grant application in the fall 2013. By taking part in one of two work sessions at the end of the workshop, participants can either create a SRTS Activities and Programs Plan or begin an online QuickStart Mini-grant application.
As a bonus, two participants at the workshop will be selected to have a walking or biking event organized by VDOT at their schools.
