continued At the October village board meeting, Cazenovia Area Community Development Association Interim Executive Director Lauren Lines presented trustees with information on a national initiative aimed at making children’s commutes to school safer. The program would increase awareness and security of the children who walk to their schools every day.
“We are in the process of applying for a Safe Routes to School grant. It’s a nice chance to highlight that this is a very high priority to the village board — to keep our young village residents safe — and it dovetails nicely into our grant effort,” Mann said.
Davies was happy to hear of the grant opportunity, but offered up another suggestion regarding making daily commutes through Cazenovia safer. “I think we need some deer-crossing signs up on Fenner and Burton streets. This time of year can be dangerous,” she said.
