Email News Alerts

Following more than a year of research and brainstorming about how to get more kids to bike and walk to school, Perham’s final Safe Routes to School plan was released last week.


Prepared by West Central Initiative, the plan was put together with help and input from the schools, the city of Perham, and stakeholders like Partnership 4 Health. Student and parent surveys, along with other community input, were also taken into account.
