Save the date! The fourth Safe Routes to School National Conference will be held in Sacramento, Aug. 13-15, 2013, and will be hosted by the Local Government Commission (LGC), a nonprofit, nonpartisan, membership organization that provides inspiration, technical assistance, and networking to local elected officials and other dedicated community leaders who are working to create healthy, walkable, and resource-efficient communities. The LGC will partner with the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District (SMAQMD), the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG), Sacramento Area Bicycle Advocates (SABA), and WALKSacramento.
The conference brings together program representatives, state Departments of Transportation, planners, elected officials, and community members to provide an opportunity for individuals, agencies, and organizations involved with Safe Routes to School to network, engage in educational opportunities, become inspired, and form partnerships to enhance their Safe Routes to School work.
The third Safe Routes to School National Conference, held in Minneapolis, Minn., in August 2011, had more than 600 participants in attendance and was a resounding success.
