The City of Kettering partners with Wright State University every two years to conduct a Kettering Resident Satisfaction Survey.  Emails with a link to the online survey went out yesterday from Carol Murray, our partner at Wright State, to a randomly selected group of Kettering residents.  If you received an email it is a valid survey and we appreciate you taking the time to provide your feedback.

Safe Routes to School Program

The Kettering Safety Section provides useful information on developing or improving safe and healthy ways of getting to school.  This information can be used in the school community, to help children safely navigate their neighborhood or by teachers as classroom resources. Safety Section members are committed to working  pro-actively with school and neighborhood communities to achieve the following outcomes:
1. Enable and encourage children, including those with disabilities, to walk and bicycle to school.
2. Make bicycling and walking to school a safer and more appealing transportation alternative, thereby encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle from an early age.
3. Facilitate in the planning, development and implementation of projects and activities that will improve safety and reduce traffic, fuel consumption and air pollution in the vicinity of schools.
