Chillicothe Awarded Safe Streets for All Grant!

Mayor Luke Feeney is pleased to announce that, during National Bike Month, the City of Chillicothe has received funding from the Safe Streets for All grant program through the United States Department of Transportation. The funding is for communities to improve roadway safety by increasing protections for bicyclists and pedestrians while significantly reducing and eventually eliminating roadway fatalities and serious injuries. 

The application for the 2024 Safe Streets for All planning and demonstration grant was submitted in early April, and the United States Department of Transportation recently announced that Chillicothe is one of eight Ohio communities selected to receive awards.

A planning and demonstration grant provides federal funds to develop, complete, or supplement an action plan. The City of Chillicothe will receive $120,000 to develop a comprehensive safety action plan to identify the most significant roadway safety concerns in a community and the implementation of projects and strategies to address roadway safety issues. 

“I am incredibly proud of the team here at the City,” said Feeney “the hard work that has gone into this application and other recent wins is making the City a better place on a daily basis. With this grant, we will be able to more effectively plan to make our roadways safer and more toward reaching the status of Bicycle Friendly City – a goal identified by the community in the Choose Chillicothe comprehensive plan.”
