Are you a 39th Ward resident who wants to improve neighborhood trails and bikeways? Do you have ideas about how to create safe and accessible connections?

The 39th Ward — represented by Alderman Margaret Laurino — contains a large section of the Chicago River on the far Northwest Side. So, needless to say, it's going to be a key part of the campaign to develop a continuous Chicago River Trail.

Please join us for a community workshop with Ald. Laurino to learn about proposed projects and to share your ideas for improving trails and bike routes.

The workshop will be held from 6:30-8 p.m. on Thursday, May 25 at Gompers Park Fieldhouse (4222 W. Foster Avenue, Chicago, IL 60630).

Topics will include:

This meeting is the first in a series that we are organizing as part of the Chicago River Trail campaign. If you live in the ward, we'd love for you to join us and help inform the next steps.

Planning to come? Gompers Park Fieldhouse is accessible via the CTA's #92 Foster bus. Limited street parking is available.

Refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP to Steve Simmons at Active Trans, steve@activetrans.org, 312-216-0472.
