Breathe Cleaner with Idle Free School Zones
As school gets underway, NCTCOG asks parents and school districts alike to keep their eyes open for long lines of idling vehicles at school campuses. NCTCOG will be looking for school districts and specific campuses to team up with for an Idle Free School Zones project, which will focus on implementing idle reduction strategies in parent pick-up/drop-off zones. Student educational components will also be developed. The goal is to ultimately reduce harmful air pollutants around each campus. Respond to AQfunding@nctcog.org by September 30 to recommend school districts or campuses that would benefit from this unique and educational opportunity.
