Get an Update on Plainfield's Comprehensive Transportation Plan Nov. 14
Event is the second of three scheduled public meetings.
The Village of Plainfield will host the second of three public meetings on its Comprehensive Transportation Plan from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 14, at the Plainfield Public Works building, 1440 Coil Plus Dr.
Village staff will be available to answer qustions, and a brief presentation is scheduled for 7 p.m.
Funded by a $120,000 Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) grant, the aim of the transportation plan is to "create a blueprint to maintain and improve the quality of the existing village transportation system, reduce auto trips, increase bicycle trips, improve the walkability of the community and enhance and expand the existing transit service of the village," Superintendent of Public Improvements Randy Jessen said in a press release.
At the meeting, residents will get an overview of the proposed roadway, transit, bicycle and pedestrian improvements and get a chance to offer feedback on prioritizing the projects.
Residents can also sound off by submitting comments, photos and feedback at www.plainfieldtransportation.com.
The Nov. 14 event is the second public meeting on the transportation plan update; the first meeting took place Aug. 21. The third and final public meeting is slated for 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 20, 2013, at Village Hall.
The plan is scheduled to be completed by June 2013, Jessen said.
