2015 Lake County Safe Routes to Schools Assessment

This report documents a variety of community participatory research projects—many of them completed by youth—that Lake County citizens have completed over the last two years to better understand community barriers to walking and biking. It also provides three key recommendations to increase the number of students who walk and/or bike to school in Lake County:

  • Use Walking School Buses, Bike Rodeos, Walk/Bike to School campaigns, and
    other education tools to encourage more students to walk or bike to school.
  • Develop wellness policies in the school district that support walking and
  • Prioritize and fund infrastructure improvements
