The Village of Ellenville in Ulster County was recently awarded $233,000 in Safe Routes To School (SRTS) Program Infrastructure and Noninfrastructure Funds for the East Ellenville Pedestrian Safety Project. This federally funded reimbursement program will allow the village to improve pedestrian access and safely connect the Kossar Place neighborhood with the Ellenville Central School District campus.
The SRTS program is a federal, state and local effort to enable and encourage children, including those with disabilities, to walk and bicycle to school and to make walking and bicycling to school safe and appealing.
