In 2015, a group of fourth graders from TJ Austin Elementary School presented the Sidewalk Project to Councilman Ed Moore requesting sidewalks to be installed near the Austin campus.
Although these students now attend Moore, Three Lakes and Hogg middle schools, they all gathered back at Austin Elementary today to join Mr. Moore, Mayor Martin Heines, Tyler ISD Trustee Rev. Orenthia Mason & other special guests to ceremonially break ground on the future sidewalks.
In just a few months, current Austin Elementary students and families will benefit from the Sidewalk Project by having a safe way to walk to and from school each day.
We thank Councilman Moore for his guidance on this project.
