Title: Illinois overview
Post by: LpAngelRob on September 03, 2009, 12:45:44 pm
Most of the work being done in the state is currently being done at the (very) high level... I sent an e-mail to Tom Murtha of the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning. He let me know that some outreach is being done by the League of Illinois Bicyclists (http://www.bikelib.org) but that both organizations are still working at the state-to-state level.

When it comes time to help define local routes, individuals can become more involved.

Tom also sent me a link the fancy NE Illinois Greenways and Trails website, which you may peruse: http://www.cmap.illinois.gov/greenwaysandtrails.aspx

Thanks for the post. That is very good news and I will reach out to Rich a LIB and NE IL Greenways and Trails to see how we can support them. I have been in contact with the Bike/Ped and offered our services (mapping, meeting coordination, etc.)
