Jason Land and Jennifer Back have been working on getting bike racks for school bus stops in Spring Creek after noticing that students leave their bikes unsecured or chained to stop signs at these stops.  It is proposed to use loop style racks because they are very economical and popular and to install these at the stops where the most students are picked up.  Installation of a total of six racks is planned for early next year at the Cascade and Bellwood stops in the Marina District, the Abarr Alpine Wescott cross stops in the Palace Heights District, and the Berry Creek and Lamont stops in the Vista Grande District.  For more information on the project, how to donate, or how to volunteer please e-mail jennifer@ormazaconstruction.com
