Published By
Health Impact Project

The North Central Oregon Public Health District, in partnership with the North Wasco County School District and the City of The Dalles Community Development Department, utilized the San Francisco Pedestrian Environmental Quality Index (PEQI) to assess pedestrian safety around Colonel Wright and Dry Hollow Elementary Schools. The school district recently revised the lines for bus service and more children could potentially be walking to school.
