MnSRTS Strategic Plan

Cover of Five-year Strategic Plan document from 2020

The original Minnesota Safe Routes to School Strategic Plan was completed in 2015. In 2020, it was updated with a five-year roadmap for statewide Safe Routes to School efforts and initiatives in Minnesota. MnDOT convened a diverse group of stakeholders from agencies and organizations around the state to develop the plan. Participants included representatives from Minnesota departments of health, transportation, and education; local and regional government; public safety; traffic safety; schools and school districts; nonprofits; and health organizations.

The stakeholder engagement process for Strategic Plan development consisted of robust engagement through a variety of platforms to reach local, regional and statewide stakeholders with varying understanding of Safe Routes to School programing in Minnesota. The participants developed a vision statement for the MnSRTS program, as well as five-year goals, strategies, and action steps. The plan included approaches for public outreach, marketing, education and implementation of Safe Routes to School initiatives, plans and programs.
