LRC takes a crosswalk to school

school children talking the LRC crosswalkFebruary 2020 – During the next Livable Roadways Committee (LRC) meeting on Wednesday, February 26, members will get “schooled” about the City of Tampa’s Painted Intersections and Crosswalks program. After, they will walk the two blocks from County Center to Rampello’s K-8 Downtown Partnership Magnet School to experience Mayor Castor’s first painted Crosswalk to Classroom project and see the bright colors that help drivers pay attention to pedestrians, bicyclists, and children crossing to school. In November 2019, Mayor Castor unveiled her Crosswalks to Classrooms initiative by showcasing a colorfully painted crosswalk at Rampello and reaffirmed Tampa’s commitment to Vision Zero during the National Safe Routes to School Conference.

We invite everyone to join us at the MPO’s Livable Roadways Committee meeting for an enjoyable and informative field trip to Rampello. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 26 from 9-11 a.m. on the 18th floor of County Center.
