This 10-year plan will work to make your Oak Park a world-class bicycling community.
The Village hired the Active Transportation Alliance to develop the plan. Thanks in large part to residents’ input, the plan will make your community a more bikeable and livable place. Congratulations!
Oak Park has an active bicycling culture and has recently made strides to become more bicycle-friendly. In 2006 the League of American Bicyclists recognized Oak Park with an honorable mention in its Bicycle Friendly Communities awards. The Active Transportation Alliance was delighted to assist Oak Park in developing a Village Bicycle Plan. The Active Transportation Alliance worked with Oak Park and the village’s residents to develop a plan that will build on current and past success and develop recommendations to make bicycling an integral park of daily life in Oak Park.
A convenient and comprehensive network of bikeways will increase safety for current bicyclists and encourage more people to try bicycling. Oak Park’s public right-of-way is limited and the Active Transportation Alliance developed design options that reflect these conditions. The plan also considered bicycle parking and access to transit needs. The Active Transportation Alliance will review current policies and make recommendations to develop complete streets and bicycle-friendly streets policies
This comprehensive bike plan will expand residents’ transportation options with new bikeways and bike parking for local businesses. The plan will also identify innovative encouragement and safety programs making bicycling a safe, comfortable option for all residents.
