School Safety Improvements

The City is actively implementing recommendations from the School Safety Assessments. The City ‘s Transportation and Street Maintenance Divisions are partnering to implement “short term” improvements such as high visibility crosswalks, new stop signs, and “quick build” curb extensions. The City will complete short-term improvements at 20 schools in 2018 and 20 schools in 2019. The City is also pursuing competitive grant funds for long term improvements such as new flashing beacons, sidewalk widening, and permanent curb extensions.

Safety Assessments

The City of Fremont has conducted School Safety Assessments for all 40 public schools in the City. The School Safety Assessments are a collaboration of Fremont Unified School District (FUSD), students, parents, City of Fremont Transportation staff and consultants. The assessments include a comprehensive audit of walking and bicycling safety conditions, development of a set of infrastructure recommendations to improve safety, and development of maps of recommended walking and bicycling routes.
