Spencer Safe Routes To School

Safe Routes to School (SRTS) programs are an opportunity to make walking and bicycling to school safer for children in grades K-8, and to increase the number of children who choose to walk and bicycle. On a broader level, SRTS programs can enhance children’s health and well-being, ease traffic congestion near the school, and improve community members’ overall quality of life.

Planning Process
In 2022, the North Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Committion and School District of Spencer won a WisDOT SRTS planning grant to create a SRTS Plan for Spencer Elementary and Spencer Middle/High School. In the fall of 2022, Spencer and Spencer Public Schools began SRTS Planning with the assistance of the North Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (NCWRPC). The NCWRPC guided the Spencer SRTS Task Force through the planning process.
