Kentucky to fund elementary school in Jefferson CountyFebruary 24th, 2010 - 1:25 am ICT by BNO News
LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY (BNO NEWS) – Governor Steve Beshear announced on Tuesday a $31,578 funding to Rangeland elementary school in Jefferson County, Kentucky, for sidewalk improvement projects.
“This project will do much to address pressing safety concerns, but it will have another benefit—health. As more and more children in America and in Kentucky struggle with weight and nutrition issues, it is increasingly important for us to encourage physical activity,” said Governor Beshear.
The project is part of the Safe Routes to School, a program designed to encourage students to walk or ride bicycles to school. Through this funding, Rangeland elementary school will improve two pedestrian pathways and will add bike racks too.
“It is especially gratifying during these tough economic times for Rangeland Elementary to receive money to help with necessary renovations. Projects such as repaving, improving the pedestrian pathway, improving the sight lines near the play area, and adding bike racks will make our school a safer, more appealing place for our children to learn and grow socially,” said Senator Denise Harper Angel.
