Smart Routes To School
¡Si se puede! Yes we can! Over the last several months, our CSPL Safety and Violence Prevention Committee has been working with our partners to start a Smart Routes to School program in Maywood and Proviso Township in order to ensure that children in the area can walk safely to and from school on a daily basis.
After months of strategizing, organizing petitions and support, meeting with our local officials and showing up to local town meetings, we have great news to share! In April, the governing bodies of Proviso Township, School District 89 and the Village of Maywood each voted to approve funding to support the start of the Smart Routes to School Pilot Program.
This program will start at the beginning of this upcoming school year in August 2019!

Proviso Communities Make Strides Toward a Healthier Future with Passage of Tobacco 21 in Illinois!
The PP4H Tobacco-Free Living Hub is excited to share fantastic news!
On Sunday, April 7, 2019, Governor J.B. Pritzker made an important stride toward a healthier future for Illinois as he signed a bill into law that raises the age to purchase tobacco products in the state from 18 to 21 years old. The law will go into effect on July 1. PP4H and members of its Tobacco-Free Living Hub want to extend a special thanks to Rep. Camille Lilly who sponsored the bill and Senator Julie Morrison who championed the statewide “Tobacco 21” legislation.
The passage of Tobacco 21 in Maywood in May 2017 contributed to the momentum of local Tobacco 21 policies in Cook County and ultimately, to the statewide adoption of Tobacco 21. The PP4H Tobacco-Free Living Hub would like to thank everyone who called, emailed, or visited their elected officials at every level. It’s because of your hard work and commitment to a healthier community that this law successfully passed! Moving forward, PP4H looks forward to supporting communities in Proviso Township to implement this new policy.
The Hub is especially grateful to students who are part of Proviso West High School’s Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) club, who are leaders in promoting anti-smoking and school wellness. In November, two students from the Proviso West SADD club testified at the Cook County Board of Commissioners meeting in support of Tobacco 21 legislation. Cook County has since adopted Tobacco 21 legislation that covers unincorporated Cook County, and the new state legislation will expand this to include all of Cook County.
