Park Forest Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan
The Park Forest Board of Trustees adopted the proposed Park Forest Bike & Pedestrian Plan at the Dec. 8 Village Board meeting.
A Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) Local Technical Assistance grant application was written and awarded for the development of a Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan in October of 2013. Initial planning and preparations took place over the winter and the official Bike/Ped planning process was kicked off with a presentation by CMAP at a Village Board meeting in February 2014. A Bike & Pedestrian Advisory Committee was appointed by Mayor Ostenburg and included the following residents and staff: Al Sturges, Bonita Dillard, Claudette Hall, Craig Oberman, Danielle Gladstone, David Atkins, Peter Green, Erica Walker, Hildy Kingma, Kevin Headley, Larry Howard, Leslie Phemister, Margaret Lewis, Nick Christie, Patty Mangano, Rob Gunther, Sandra Zoellner, Sandy Isaac, Sarah Coulter, Shanna Mitchell.
