|Three County Safe Routes project applications|
The County ones are:
- Auburn Elementary – A new crosswalk with Rapid Rectangular Flashing Beacons (RRFB) on Center Street located between Tierra Drive NE and Citation Drive NE. Auburn Elementary is one of the five pilot schools in the Salem Area SRTS program.
- Four Corners Elementary – A new crosswalk with RRFB on State Street at Elma Avenue SE, a separated and improved walkway on the east side of Elma Avenue SE filling walkway gaps between State Street and Craig Lane, an enhanced crosswalk at Mahrt Avenue and Elma Avenue SE, and traffic calming measures near the school.
- Mary Eyre Elementary – A new crosswalk and school zone flashers crossing Pennsylvania Avenue at Shenandoah Drive SE, additional school zone signage on Pennsylvania Avenue, new ADA ramps on Shenandoah Drive SE, new ADA ramps on Shawnee Drive SE.

On the prospects for new rules on the reduction of carbon pollution, the County is threatening a lawsuit against Governor Brown's executive order. Committee members also cite multiple reasons for delay and doubt. The MPO continues with an essentially obstructionist stance, and would like a member appointed to a new advisory committee, clearly not to contribute constructively or creatively, but to slow-walk the process as much as possible.
