Two-Way Stop Controlled, Roundabout, All-way Stop Controlled, Uncontrolled/Yield Intersection, Mid-Block Crossings with Beacon, Stop Light Signalized Controlled, HAWK Signal


Please indicate your level of agreement with the following statement:

If parents desire locations for crossing guards not identified in the school crossing guard program, school volunteers should be trained as crossing guards.

In your opinion, which crossing along your school's route is the most challenging for students to navigate on foot or bike? (i.e. Michigan and 9th)
17th and Mass


How far would you let your elementary school age children walk or bike to school?
1.5 to 2 miles


Would you let your elementary school age children walk or bike to school if the route included crossing a major street like 6th St, Iowa St., or Clinton Pkwy.?
No


How far would you let your middle school age children walk or bike to school?
Over 2 miles


Would you let your middle school age children walk or bike to school if the route included crossing a major street like 6th St, Iowa St., or Clinton Pkwy.?
No


Please share any other thoughts you have about the proposed Safe Route to School routes.
Intersection of Tennessee & 18th St. needs signaling. It's a popular walkway to school. Not safe without some signal. Make it one lane for cars to have access only to their driveways, not as a cut through east/west route.


How comfortable would you feel about your children walking or biking on a Yield Roadway shown above?
Somewhat Comfortable


How comfortable would you feel about your children walking or biking on a Sidewalk along Major Street shown above?
Somewhat Uncomfortable


Between the two options of a Yield Roadway on an Neighborhood/Local Street or Sidewalk Along a Major Street, which would you rather students walk or bike along?
Sidewalk Along a Major Street


Explain your reasoning.
sidewalks provide safer travel but a yield roadway along 18th Street would be safer than 19th because 19th St. sidewalks have no buffer (easement) between road and walkway. If there was a buffer I would prefer 19th St.


Referencing your school's safe route to school (link below), which route would you prefer for students walking and biking to school?
Option D - Yield roadway on 18th St., and sidewalk on Ohio St.


Please share any other thoughts you have about your Safe Route to School.
1. Please make 17th & Mass safer for crossing by pedestrians by having only ONE signal mode. Eliminate the short mode.
2. Please make 18th between Louisiana & Vermont safe for pedestrians.

Nothing will work unless LPD enforces the laws. It is my experience that they don't, or won't, enforce the speed limits on the roads as they are now. We live on Barker and it is treated like a drag strip now, no matter how many complaints we make to LPD.

Very Uncomfortable


Between the two options of a Yield Roadway on an Neighborhood/Local Street or Sidewalk Along a Major Street, which would you rather students walk or bike along?
Yield Roadway on Neighborhood/Local Street


Explain your reasoning.
Cars are at least traveling at lower speeds.


Please share any other thoughts you have about your Safe Route to School.
Far too many parents can't seem to use common sense when dropping off their kids in the mornings, and to a lesser degree at pick up. The Cordley parking lot on the west side of the building is very busy, has very little direction, not enough space, and can be very dangerous for many young children. With limited parking available, many parents rush to get their kids out and rush to leave the lot. This can be dangerous for little ones that aren't as careful when passing between cars and crossing behind parked cars. Could there be more structure or monitoring of this area? Many of us choose to walk our kids into the building each morning, but have to make commutes after drop off. I would like to see this addressed. Thank you.

I would rather have them in a designated area away from cars because they are not great at staying predictable in their swerving... I don't want them that close to vehicles that are driving.


Please share any other thoughts you have about your Safe Route to School.
My kids take a bus to school because we are so far away (across 6th street ~2.5 miles from school). Many of us parents go in together to pay for this. I think it should be provided by the school since we are not in a walking distance or biking distance of the school.

It would be nice to have bus schedules coordinated with after school activities. For kids who ride the school bus home, they either wait 40+ minutes for the city bus to take them home or opt out of after school activities.

Drivers don't always see bikers/walkers, especially at dawn/dusk with glare. Just safer to have kids on the sidewalk.

Please share any other thoughts you have about the proposed Safe Route to School routes.
My son bikes to and from school every day. In the winter, he has 0 hour so he's biking in the dark. He's been nearly hit by cars multiple times, and once he slid on the sidewalk at the intersection of Inverness and Clinton and smashed head-first into the utility pole - he got 6 stitches in his face. I worry every day he bikes to school that he will be killed en route. This is horrible!

I'm less worried about a car going up on the sidewalk than failing to yield.



Please share any other thoughts you have about your Safe Route to School.
I have no idea what Bush Creek Drive is. I really think that Inverness needs to be paved better and a bike lane put in.
