Safe Routes to School Sidewalk Construction Celebrated with Ribbon Cutting at Taft Elementary

Tuesday, August 29, 2017

On Tuesday, August 29, city leaders and residents gathered at Taft Elementary to commemorate the completion of sidewalk improvements with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Several sidewalks directly adjacent to the elementary school were replaced in order to make it safer for neighborhood students that walk to school. The construction was made possible by the Safe Routes to School program, a collaboration between the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation, the Youngstown City School District, the City of Youngstown, the Western Reserve Health Foundation, the Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley, and the William Swanston Charitable Fund.
