 2013 Bicycle Master Plan

On Monday, June 3, 2013 the Lake Forest City Council voted unanimously to approve the Bicycle Master Plan as part of an update to the City of Lake Forest Comprehensive Plan. The Bicycle Master Plan incorporates input from residents, local cyclists and Boards and Commissions to create a framework to guide future bicycle improvements.

The City of Lake Forest is participating in a grant received by the League of Illinois Bicyclists to prepare a "Bike to Metra" brochure once the Bicycle Master Plan is completed. City staff would like to thank the League of Illinois Bicyclists, all of the Lake Forest residents and visiting cyclists who participated in the photo-shoot in October. Those photographs will enhance the brochure while showcasing enthusiasm for bicycling in Lake Forest.

  • Public Workshops

 


Over 60 residents of Lake Forest and Lake Bluff participated in two public workshops to assist the project team in gathering data for the plan. Participants worked together at tables of 5-6 people to identify key issues related to biking including local destinations, regional connections, dream routes, and hazards. These findings are critical in preparing the final Bicycle Master Plan. Click on the links below to download maps summarizing the information discovered during those workshops.
