California Transportation Commission’s Active Transportation Program awarded funding to four projects in Humboldt County this week. Two of those projects were in the 2nd District. The other projects are in Trinidad and Hoopa.
Through the funding, safe routes to schools projects will be started in Fortuna and Rio Dell. South Fortuna Elementary will receive almost $900,000 and Rio Dell’s K-8 schools will receive $1.5 million.
This is the program that also funded the recent improvements around Redway Elementary School.
A successful grant requires the kind of information and input gathered at workshops like this one Estelle participated in at South Fortuna Elementary last February.
The school is located on the well-travelled Newburg Road and safe access for kids is a real challenge. Improvements to access will hopefully address this kind of dangerous behavior.
The Fortuna River Lodge was decorated in sunflowers to celebrate this year’s theme of the annual National Business Women’s luncheon, hosted by the Fortuna Kiwanis Club.
Second District Humboldt County Supervisor and board President Estelle Fennell was honored as the 2015 Fortuna Kiwanis Woman of Distinction at the annual luncheon, which took place on Oct. 21.
Fennell said she was unprepared when her name was announced.
“I am totally surprised,” she said, “so much so that I am speechless. I am extremely honored, and humbled. I have not ever been as honored as I am this day.”
