The Safe Routes to School walk and bike audits are underway in the city of Davis, with many more audits to come. The city and school district invite community participation in the audits, which involve meeting at the designated school site and branching out on bikes or on foot to determine the safest routes children can take to school, as well as what infrastructure changes may be necessary to ensure that children can walk and bike safely to and from school.

* Thursday at 7:45 a.m.: César Chávez Elementary School, 1221 Anderson Road;
* Tuesday, May 7, 7:30 a.m.: Holmes Junior High School, 1220 Drexel Drive;
