Input sought from Highland Parkers

Do you live or work in Highland Park? If so, the City of Highland Park wants your help reducing automobile congestion, cutting greenhouse gas emissions and promoting alternative transportation for everyday activities.

You can help by taking /a survey that will guide Highland Park's non-motorized transportation plan.

The plan will serve as an amendment to the city’s Greenways Plan, and will support the goals of the Highland Park Community Sustainability Strategic Plan by improving sidewalk conditions, constructing bicycle routes and designing a Complete Streets policy.

If you live or work in Highland Park, take the survey from now until June 12. For more information, please contact Lee Smith, Senior Planner, at 847 926-1612 or
