Suggested Routes to School Walking Maps
Every public elementary school in the City of Peoria has a Suggested Route to School Walking Map. The purpose of this map is to recommend the preferred walking routes for students. The map is also used to identify any deficiencies along the routes and to evaluate the need for school traffic control such as, 15mph School Crossings, and the placement of adult crossing guards.
The Suggested Route to School Walking Map should encourage more children to walk and ride their bikes in a safe environment, which is a healthy activity. It should also help to minimize the number of vehicles at schools during arrival and dismissal times, which affects traffic congestion. To be successful, the input and momentum needs to come from parents and school officials.
The City of Peoria prepares Suggested Route to School Walking Maps for every public elementary school within the City and ensures that maps are updated every school year. When it is time to create or modify a route map, City staff will contact the school principal to determine if the school wishes to participate in the process. If the school does not wish to participate, City staff will prepare the map and submit the map to the school for review; however, the process to identify recommended walking routes should be a cooperative effort among parents, school officials and City staff for the best outcome.
