On May 18th 2021 The STRIVE team worked with Junaluska Elementary School for a STRIVE Walk Audit
STRIVE worked with NCDOT Div 14, Haywood County Public Health, Safe Routes to School NC, French Broad MPO, and Junaluska Elementary School hosted an in-person Walk Audit assessing infrastructure needs with the school. We will post our findings once the audit data is compiled and provided to Junaluska Elementary School.
Important Note: This Elementary school was built during an era when many new schools were built outside of municipal limits and non-motorized infrastructure. The school is very-much car and school bus dependent. While there are some non-motorized amenities in/around the school, we selected this site as a good example of where there are gaps in walking/biking access. Multimodal alternatives are encouraged within your comfort zone.
