The overarching purpose and need of this project is to provide a non-motorized alternative to travel the community, recreational enhancements and connectivity of public facilities to residential neighborhoods.
This project is consistent with Sauk Village’s goal to plan a pedestrian and bicycle network to reach key destinations such as schools, parks, trails and forest preserve as outlined in the Sauk Village Comprehensive Plan. The 223rd Street corridor was specifically identified in the plan as a key connector between the Plum Grove Forest Preserve and Bloom Township High School.
