On October 18, 2017, the California Transportation Commission approved $1,278,000 in Active Transportation Program (ATP) funds for the City of Ontario. This grant will help pay for pedestrian improvements, such as missing sidewalks, handicap ramps and enhanced crosswalks around Sultana Elementary and De Anza Middle Schools.
The grant supplements the $1,531,680 in ATP funds received over the past three years for pedestrian oriented improvements around Euclid, Bon View, Corona, Vineyard and El Camino Elementary Schools. These much needed improvements will make these neighborhoods friendlier to pedestrians and improve the access of residents to local schools, community centers, parks, local commercial uses and transit stops which should lead to improved health.
For more information about the Active Transportation Program, please contact the City of Ontario Planning Department at (909) 395-2036.
