2013 Draft Bicycle Master Plan
On Thursday, January 24, 2013 the Lake Forest
Plan Commission voted unanimously to recommend
approval of the Bicycle
Master Plan to the City Council 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 Bicycle Master Plan will be
considered by the City Council for incorporation into the City's
MASTER PLAN NEWS & EVENTS
Upcoming Public Meeting
We are pedaling along! The
Master Plan has been finalized and will be
scheduled for consideration by the City Council
at an upcoming meeting.
- In the Works!
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.

YOU bike in 15 minutes?
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

discovered during those workshops.
