Sidewalks

Grant 20150427The Mojave Foundation is working with Kern County Roads to apply for a massive sidewalks grant in May of 2015 that would put sidewalks on every street in downtown Mojave, and connect the bike path on Oak Creek Road with K street via the overpass. The sidewalk project would be funded by CalTrans, through the “Safe Routes to School” program. This is a highly competitive grant process with hundreds of communities across the state of California applying. There are two ways you can help us increase our eligibility to win this grant:
