The Village of Northbrook has begun work on a bicycle and pedestrian plan, which ultimately will guide residents, businesses, Village Staff, and Elected Officials on strategies to make Northbrook a more enjoyable place to walk and to ride bicycles. This plan seeks to connect the Central Business District, industrial areas, and major employers via sidewalks and bike routes. The Village is working with consultant Alta Planning and Design to create the Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan. Alta representatives will set up at various locations to share and generate interest in the project.
The purpose of the Village's Bicycle Plan is to coordinate all bicycle-related initiatives within the community, to plan for improvements for access to bicycle transportation, and to make the village more bicycle-friendly.
