PEDESTRIAN SAFETY COMMITTEE UPDATE

As you may recall, back in late October we obtained approximately 170 signatures asking the Village to conduct a study of Avoca District 37 surrounding streets.  The Village received the petition and after carefully reviewing our requests responded back in mid-January.  Please see the attached response from the Village.  Also if you have not joined our Facebook page, Sidewalks for Avoca West Neighborhood, we ask that you consider as we are constantly updating with images and letters.

The purpose of the PTC is to:

  • Offer a forum for ideas, concerns and information

  • Provide assistance to teachers through volunteerism
  • Assist administration in communicating school information
  • Sponsor social and educational events for students, families and the community
  • Fund special school programs through a variety of fund-raising events throughout the school year.

*Annual membership dues are $20 per family and help fund programs for students.
