This note comes from Taylorsville City Neighborhood Services coordinator Rhetta McIff in response to the assistance of Taylorsville High AVID students during an event titled Open Streets.
“I appreciated having such a wonderful group of students assisting vendors, setting up, helping people find bathrooms, and playing in the streets. It was exactly the
assistance I needed.”
“I enjoyed seeing the yellow vests moving up and down the course through the event (and seeing a bunch of you lying down in the middle of the road!). You were all happy to be there and you brought good vitality to the event.”
“I hope you had fun enjoying a new way to use a public space. Open Streets helps communities understand that walking and bicycling around the community is easier and more fun than always taking a car. It is designed to address issues with obesity, physical inactivity, air quality, active transportation, the need for more bike lanes, and community revitalization. For one event it has a big job.”
“Again, thank you. You represented your school and your community well.”
