Chautauqua Safety Village Map
The Chautauqua Safety Village includes paved roads, sidewalks, street signs, a railroad crossing, streetlights, a four-way traffic signal, and additional new building sites for sponsors. The village is typically busy with children driving electric cars along its streets, pedestrians crossing the crosswalks, and bicyclists demonstrating their hand signals.
The Chautauqua Safety Village is made up of many different sites. Sponsors who purchase a site for naming rights can customize and construct a permanent building to become part of our village.
A group of veteran firemen called The Rangers have been instrumental in helping the Chautauqua Safety Village. They have assisted in village building construction, concrete pad pouring, and the installations of our mock home ventilation system and the village traffic light. Thank you to this group for all of effort they have put into the village, and a special thank you to Denny Barmore for his hard work with The Rangers over the years.
