$760,000 for Windermere’s Safe Route to School Project Phase One

Projects Updates — Friday, August 20, 2021

We are excited to announce that we expect $760,000 in Federal funding to be approved this Fall for Phase One of Windermere’s Safe Route to School Project. Windermere began the process of requesting funding for this project back in March, and thanks to the hard work and advocacy of Town Staff, Mayor O’Brien, and Congresswoman Val Demings, our goals of improving quality of life for our residents will soon be moving forward!

This project is part of the Windermere Ward Trail; a multimodal transportation path for walking, cycling, and golf cart travel within Windermere. Phase One’s primary focus is ensuring that Windermere Elementary Students can directly and safely access the school, as well as allowing residents to safely use the pathways to get to civic, recreations, commercial, and educational facilities Read more about it here.

We’d also like to thank all of our residents who contacted legislators and asked them to support this project funding.
