Thanks to all for continued patience and cooperation as the City and Schools institute traffic, parking and pedestrian safety initiatives with the start of the school year.
New crosswalks, alternate drop-offs, new traffic patterns, new sidewalks, additional parking accommodations and newly paved roads are all part of the safety improvements. In addition, the City has successfully introduced a new crossing guard program.
The City has long had difficulty in hiring and maintaining a full complement of crossing guards often resulting in police personnel filling vacant spots – over 200 times annually. The City has hired All City Management Services (ACMS) under the auspices of the Police Commissioner to assume all responsibility for crossing guard services, including recruitment, staffing vacancies and training.
