Slow Down Croton Joint Press Release with School District
Croton-Harmon Schools and the Village of Croton
Partner on Community Safety Initiative
Starting in September, join in on “Slow Down Croton” and help provide “Safe Routes to School”

        Beginning in September, The Croton-Harmon School District and Village of Croton-on-Hudson are partnering on an initiative to increase community safety for drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists. The Village will roll out a campaign entitled “Slow Down Croton,” while the School District will support the initiative through “Safe Routes to School.” This two-pronged approach intends to bring awareness to the community for the need to enhance safety measures throughout the village for drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians alike with all members of the community taking responsibility for safety.

        The safety initiative will begin with the following measures:
  • Increasing traffic enforcement throughout the Village
  • A presentation to Croton-Harmon students, residents and community groups
  • Conducting safe walks to school with Croton-Harmon students
  • A collaborative presentation at the September 1 Croton-Harmon Board of Education meeting and the September 6 Croton-on-Hudson Village Board of Trustees meeting
  • Grassroots marketing efforts by Village residents
  • Continued campaign efforts and events throughout the year
For more information about the safety campaign, please visit the Croton-Harmon School District website, www.chufsd.org, Facebook page and follow the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #CrotonSafeRoutes; as well as the Croton-on-Hudson village website, www.crotononhudson-ny.gov and Facebook page.
