Completing Cranford's Streets will involve community effort in order to support the necessary changes to accommodate pedestrians and bicyclists. Creating safe pathways to our schools will allow students to enjoy riding their bikes or walking to school in a safe environment. Alleviating the traffic congestion in the morning and afternoon by making sure the roads are safe for more than one mode of transportation will increase the quality of life for our town's residents. Studies show that students who exercise in the morning tend to be more focused once they are in the classroom. Designated pathways leading to our downtown and various points of interest will stimulate economic activity as well as community unity. The chance to implement permeable surfaces to our town can be done through this program and will help mitigate the damaging effects of flooding.
