I see a win being the relationships with community members. People are asking questions not necessarily about SR2S but also about safety. SR2S builds familiarity with the work we do and people involved in SR2S feel comfortable coming out and discussing other projects.” Pro Walk Pro Bike 2010 School State Coalition Annual MeetingSafe Routes to School Program Michigan Safe Routes to Michigan January 27, 2010
