Northern Lakeshore Trail Connectivity Plan

The CNorthernLakeshoreConnectivity-Logo-MidBlueity of Waukegan, in addition to the communities of Beach Park, North Chicago, Winthrop Harbor, and Zion have a strong base of walking and biking amenities, active Metra ridership, robust sidewalk networks, and pedestrian-friendly, downtown commercial and business districts. These municipalities are also well on their way to leading the Chicagoland area in bicycle and pedestrian-welcoming destinations for residents and visitors. With the support of the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP), these municipalities have engaged in a planning process that will involve residents, businesses, trail users, and other stakeholders in working towards safer, greener, healthier, connected, and vibrant communities. Ultimately, the process will result in the Northern Lakeshore Trail Connectivity Plan that capitalizes on the resources of the area and provides an experience that is unique to the northern lakeshore. We are working together to lead the Chicagoland area in bicycle and pedestrian-welcoming destinations for residents and visitors alike. With the support of the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP), we have engaged in a planning process that involves residents, businesses, trail users, and other stakeholders in working towards safer, greener, healthier, connected, and vibrant communities.
