The City of Decatur has received a School Safety Infrastructure Award from Georgia Department of Transportation:

“We’re pleased to announce these funds which will help communities provide a safer environment for students and parents to walk or bike to school, which ultimately reduces congestion and air pollution in the school vicinity,” said Georgia DOT Commissioner Vance C. Smith, Jr. “An added benefit is increased physical activity of our children.”

The Award is for slightly less than $500,000 and it will be applied to City of Decatur: $498,944.48 Glennwood Academy, Clairemont Elementary, Oakhurst Elementary, Winnona Park Elementary and Carl G. Renfroe Middle Schools.
