Workshop aims to improve Six Corners biking, walking

A growing body of research tells us that businesses whose customers arrived by foot or bicycle visited the most often and spent the most money per month. And we've learned that retail sales greatly increase when businesses are located near a protected bike lane.

That’s part of the reason that the Six Corners Association has teamed up with Active Trans to help make the Six Corners shopping district more bike and pedestrian friendly.

To kick off the project, the team is hosting a community workshop on April 22 to get input and ideas from people who live, work and shop near the Milwaukee Ave., Cicero Ave. Irving Park Rd. intersection in Portage Park.

RSVP today to reserve your spot.  

Specifically, we’re interested in hearing which routes you take on foot and on bike to get to local shops, which streets you feel unsafe crossing and what improvements you think would make Six Corners a bike- and pedestrian-friendly business district.

Here are the details:

What: Six Corners Community Workshop
Who: Active Trans, Six Corners Association, and YOU, especially if you live, work, or shop in Portage Park
When: 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on April 22, 2015 (Earth Day)
Where: 4041 N. Milwaukee Avenue
