The Village of Northbrook has retained Alta Planning + Design and subconsultant Christopher Burke Engineering to prepare a Master Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan. The Village is located in an area of high-quality trails that include the Green Bay Trail, North Branch Trail, Skokie Lagoons / North Shore Trail, portions of the Skokie Valley Trail, and the Des Plaines River Trail. Local planning initiatives in nearby municipalities have made progress in closing gaps to walking and bicycling through a coordinated approach of extending trails, constructing a network of on-street bicycle facilities, and improving walking paths, sidewalks, and intersections.
This plan will help Northbrook to develop a network of facilities that improve walking and bicycling in the Village, coordinate with the varies roadway agencies who have jurisdiction over roadways in Northbrook, and engage residents, employers, and other interested parties to improve education, encouragement, and enforcement of the rules of the road when it comes to those who walk, drive, or use a bicycle in Northbrook.
