SST is developed by the Safer City Team to assist Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) in developing a SST Plan. Every school should have a SST plan, and it's the goal of the Safer City Program to take every school in Maple Ridge through this program. A realistic and balanced approach is required between providing for the safety of children and the mobility of vehicles.
A school's PAC works with the Maple Ridge Safer City Coordinator through the step-by-step program. Once all the issues have been identified and supporting documentation gathered, stakeholders are invited to participate in developing strategies to reduce the problems. These stakeholders include the City of Maple Ridge, the School District, community associations and transit. Each school will have specific needs to be met and the stakeholder group will be called as required to help resolve issues.
