Today the Active Transportation Alliance is releasing a Chicago River Trail Action Plan, which lays out key steps to create a continuous trail on the north and south branches of the Chicago River within Chicago that connects to existing trails in the suburbs.
Cycling advocacy has deep roots going back more than 40 years. As such, the early pioneers of this movement are looking to secure the future of the cycling movement through planned giving and major gifts and bequests. This shift in development strategy balances traditional annual giving and long-term planned giving to meet the needs of cycling advocates looking to secure the legacy of their life’s work.
To better understand the impact of autonomous cars on car dependency, urban vitality and sustainable transportation like walking, biking and public transit in metropolitan areas like Chicago, Active Transportation Alliance is partnering with Illinois Tech to host a panel discussion, Will Driverless Cars Be Good for Cities? on June 27 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at 565 W. Adams St.
