Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan - Submit your photos!

Bike plan

In August 2019, Elmhurst began an update of its Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan, with the goal of developing a roadmap for improving streets and intersections to promote walking and biking safety. During the summer and fall, hundreds of residents, business representatives, and local agencies participated in identifying areas in need of improvement by responding to a survey, an online map, attending the open house, and talking to the project team at community events. 

Using that feedback, the City and project team developed draft recommendations, which were presented to the community for feedback in the spring and summer of 2020. Again, hundreds of residents reviewed the recommendations and provided feedback during one of two webinars, through an online survey and emails. The input is now being incorporated into a draft plan, which will be available for residents to review early this coming fall at

As Elmhurst’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan winds down, the City invites residents to hit the streets and snap pictures of their top priorities for implementation. Check out the Story Map or view the PDF for detailed improvements recommended for intersections and streets, visit the site of your favorite improvement (walking or biking there encouraged!), snap and submit a photo, and tell us why it matters to you. All photo submissions will be entered into a sweepstakes with five winners selected at random to win a gift card and goody bag. Select photo entries and stories may be included in the final plan.
