Active Routes to Schools

A Working Group comprised of Edina engineering staff, members of the Edina Transportation Commission, Edina Public Schools staff and Bloomington Public Health have been working with a consultant on the Edina Active Routes to School (ARTS) Comprehensive Plan.

The purpose of the Active Routes to School (ARTS) Plan is to identify opportunities and priorities to increase walking and biking to schools, and develop an implementation plan for making improvements in these areas. A comprehensive process involving Edina School District, City of Edina, parents and residents began in 2012 to develop a plan for the nine public schools in Edina. Through site visits, principal interviews, data gathering, and stakeholder input, a set of short, mid, and long-term improvements have been developed to address the needs of students walking and biking to school. These improvements involve actions by multiple stakeholders and include both infrastructure and policy changes.
