VILLAGE, PARK DISTRICT AND DISTRICT #35 SEEK FEEDBACK FOR WALKING AND BIKING IMPROVEMENTS IN GLENCOE

Monday, December 25, 2017

As announced in October, the Village of Glencoe, Sustainability Task Force, District 35 and the Glencoe Park District are working in partnership with the Active Transportation Alliance to develop the Village’s first community-wide Active Transportation Plan (ATP). Once complete, the plan will propose a network of safe and accessible streets that connect cyclists and pedestrians to popular community destinations in a way that accommodates the needs of all ages and ability levels.   

 

As part of the 18-month planning process, the Active Transportation Steering Committee has launched an online survey and mapping exercise and are encouraging residents to respond to both by Saturday, March 31, 2018. The survey and mapping exercise is aimed at gaining resident input on barriers to bicycling and walking and identifying key destinations that people want to reach on bicycle or foot in Glencoe. As a component of the resident outreach, District 35 will also be releasing an online survey for parents to complete, to solicit feedback and identify barriers to children walking and biking to school. 

The Active Transportation Steering Committee is hosting a community meeting in early 2018 to collect additional feedback and a follow-up meeting will occur in May to present recommendations and garner further input on community priorities. 

Learn more about the planning process, take the survey and participate in the mapping exercise on the Village’s website at www.villageofglencoe.org/ATP
