WE WANT YOUR INPUT ON HUMAN-POWERED TRANSPORTATION

5:00PM TO 6:30PM

PEORIA HEIGHTS PUBLIC LIBRARY
816 East Glen Avenue

Please come prepared to discuss the future of bicycle and pedestrian transportation in the tri-county region in the next 25 years.

The Tri-County Regional Planning Commission is required to develop a Long Range Transportation Plan for the region every 5 years, and the plan is to cover the next 25 years. The Long Range Transportation Plan covers highways, mass transit, bicycle/pedestrian, air, and river transportation. The plan is used by local, state and federal agencies to plan and fund projects in the region.

Please join us for a meeting dedicated to bicycle and pedestrian transportation. The meeting will consist of a SWOT Analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Strengths), and time to discuss specific projects for the region.
