Project Description

Safe walking and biking to school in Kilauea

Kīlauea School has one of the highest potentials for children to be able to walk and bike to school, yet the infrastructure does not support safe walking and biking. The purpose of this action group is to develop an action plan of short, medium, and long-term improvements to make it safer for Kīlauea School students to walk or bike to school, and to secure approvals for the short-term improvements.

Being part of Get Fit Kauai’s Kilauea SRTS Action group has been very rewarding. I live on a street in Kilauea whose residents are willing to sacrifice convenience for child safety. It’s Kamali`i Street, where Safe Routes to School has proposed switching us to one-way to make it safer for children walking, skating or biking to Kilauea School and their families. It has been a model of community consensus that gives a ray of hope in a public policy landscape that sometimes seems forbidding.
