Only 24 percent of jobs in the region are accessible by transit in 90 minutes or less by a typical resident — and that number drops to 12 percent in the suburbs.

Lakefront Trail users share their vision for trail's future

Last night, 45 trail users packed the room at the Margate Park Fieldhouse for our first Friends of the Lakefront Trail Visioning Workshop, in partnership with Friends of the Parks and Chicago Area Runners Association.

Workshop participants learned a bit about trail advocacy, and then went to work marking up maps; rating trail access points; indicating trail congestion, conflict areas and crash locations; and voting on their top trail advocacy issues.

We'll be hosting another workshop on the south side next Wed. in case you missed this one.

Friends of the Lakefront Trail Visioning Workshop — South Side
April 18, 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Jackson Park Fieldhouse (6401 S. Stony Island Ave.)

Come tell us about your experiences using the Lakefront Trail and share your ideas for its future. Your input will help shape our advocacy goals to improve the trail!
