There are several land use planning and development programs, policies, and organizations that support or complement Safe Routes to School efforts.

  • Center for Cities and Schools: Conducts research, provides education and facilitates collaborative policy making between local governments and school districts to help improve urban and metropolitan communities and public education.
  • Joint Use Task Force: Promotes the communal sharing of indoor and outdoor recreational spaces with model policies, best practices, and success stories.
