Case Study: Plain City, Utah

Plain City, Utah, is a small town of about 5,000 citizens. On June 27, 2006, the Weber County School District passed a bond to build a new elementary school in Plain City. The new school's location placed it within close proximity to three large subdivisions, which increased the number of students who walk to school from 270 students at the school's old location to 420 students at the new location. Although the school is within walking distance, the narrow access road that leads to it poses access and safety issues for both pedestrians and motor vehicles.
