A great organization that achieves local goals and inspiration for global efforts. They have demonstrated an ability to make wishes realities and an effective out reach so that the general public understands that, in addition to their initial plan to keep Route 41 from unecessary expansion, they will assist any community effort that falls within the guidelines of their mission and their name. They really are all about safety, agriculture, villages and the environment.

working with SAVE has been such an empowering experience because we have actaually accomplished some of our goals.There is not a 4 lane highway on rt. 41, The Mortonville Bridge is almost completed and SAVE is presenting a forum on pipelines tonight as the first one of a series on pipeline safety in Chester County.We received a grant from the USDOT to do that. The impossible has now become attainable.The dedication and knowledge of the other members and volunteers is impressive.

I have watched S.A.V.E. grow from a small group of concerned individuals to an organization providing guidance and support to their community and other nonprofits. S.A.V.E. took on the responsibility of protecting our roadways (and way of life) through public outreach and education. Working together with our community they were able to influence the policies and actions of PennDOT. They have grown and diversified along with the needs of their community and have positively affected the safety and viability of our roads.

Through this organization I have had an opportunity to work with volunteers, an executive director, the public, elected officials, and leading transportation experts. We used a combination of grass roots political efforts and detailed traffic engineering expertise to demonstrate that a two-lane, traffic calmed alternative to a major truck route could save lives, save money, save environmental resources and provide a sustainable solution to the capacity challenges of the roadway.

SAVE is an organization that serves southern Chester County in a way that no other organization does. SAVE advocates the balanced integration of infrastructure (roads and bridges etc.) with comprehensive land use planning to preserve the area's natural and historic treasures.
