routes to school more accessible for everyone.
The focus of our program is really to try and build
sidewalks around schools and around other places where
people are trying to, you know, they might be using
a bike or might be walking or whatever or wheelchair,
so, we've got a lot of work to do, we've made a lot
of progress but we've got a lot of work to do.
