New Ulm: It's time to SEE people biking and walking, act SAFE, and be SMART! Hearts Beat Back: The Heart of New Ulm Project and the Safe Routes to School Action Team have launced a new public safety campaign callled "SEE.SAFE.SMART." Each month, look for a different safety message reminding you to be aware and alert to people who are out walking and biking in our community  especially our community's kids! We want to help ensure everyone's safety on our sidewalks and streets, and encourage people to make smart decisions when encountering people walking and riding their bikes.
