Woodville, Lindsay and Strathmore on list

Tulare County Supervisors Tuesday will be asked to approve phase 1 of the next round of Safe Routes to School projects.

The projects are designed to make walking to and from school safer, and include sidewalks and signage. Many projects have already been completed in the county, including in East Porterville and Terra Bella.

Projects proposed are along road 168 in Woodville; several projects in the Lindsay Unified School District; improvements along Avenue 198 in Strathmore; improvements along Avenue 56 in Ducor; and projects in Seville, Orosi, Cutler, Tipton, Alpaugh, Allensworth, Earlimart and Matheny Tract.

The county will submit an application for a federal grant for the projects in June. Total cost of the 12 projects is more than $16 million.

In other matters, supervisors will:

>present more employee service awards.

>consider submitting a grant application for $900,000 to combat human trafficking.

>adopt the Agricultural Conservation Easement Program.

The board meets at 9 a.m. in board chambers at the county government building in Visalia.
