City of Mendota Secures Caltrans Grant to Develop Safe Routes to School Master Plan

Press Release: July 31, 2023

CLOVIS, CA: The City of Mendota is taking a large step towards a safe and improved future! Thanks to the Caltrans Active Transportation Grant, we are excited to announce that our Planning group recently completed the City’s new Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Master Plan.

The SRTS Master Plan prioritizes safety and aims to enhance the City by identifying physical upgrades and safety programs that will transform Mendota schools and their surrounding areas with more modern and accessible transportation.

Through community feedback, data analysis, and on-site visits, our Planning team pinpointed the areas that need improvement and collaborated with the City to identify and craft solutions. They collected and analyzed a large variety of data: existing policies and programs, site conditions, collision stats, parent survey responses, and feedback from our outreach events. This large collection of information led to site audits at each school, which our team utilized to identify recommended improvements and programs for the final Plan. The final Plan includes implementation strategies and funding sources for future projects.
