Big Plans for the Chicago River in the City

Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced “Great Rivers Chicago,” a new planning effort that will result in an action agenda for rivers in the City of Chicago.

Over the next 15 months, the City and Metropolitan Planning Council (MPC), in partnership with Friends of the Chicago River, topical experts and community stakeholders, will lead a planning process that explores all the waterways within the city’s limits and develops a strategic vision of how to improve them. The process invites residents and business owners to think about what they would like to see their riverfronts become and will strongly encourage them to take part in the process.

Have your say in what happens to the Chicago River by taking the survey.

Bike Trail Extension

The Edgebrook Community Association has sent a letter to the Cook County Forest Preserve District requesting a meeting with representatives from all local civic and community associations to discuss the proposed North Branch Bike Trail Extension before any work begins.

The ECA feels that significant community concerns regarding safety, traffic congestion and tree removal have been raised and should be addressed in an open, inclusive public forum.

Do you have your own concerns about the proposed extension of the North Branch Bike Trail through Old Edgebrook?

Sign the FAiR Petition. Stop O’Hare Expansion.

Edgebrook residents should expect a huge increase in nighttime aircraft traffic in October 2013 unless we can convince the Federal Aviation Authority and the Chicago Department of Aviation to fairly utilize all O’Hare runways. FAiR (Fair Allocation in Runways) is a coalition of community organizations dedicated to the equitable distribution of O’Hare aircraft traffic. Please sign the FAiR petition to have your voice be heard.
