Protect the Journey

The East Central Florida Regional Planning Council, with a grant from the Florida Department of Transportation, produced a video, “Safe Routes to School”. The seventeen minute video features spokespeople from our region on the importance of policy making that enables and advocacy that encourages children to walk or bike to school.

Within the video, you will see clips from our intersection at County Road 535 and Overstreet Road that children and parents must contend with to get to Sunset Park Elementary. In addition, Leann Flynn, another Sunset Park parent, and I have brief parts, and our District 1 Planning and Zoning Commissioner, Richard Geller, speaks to the siting of the school.
