Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan
The City of St. Charles is developing a Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan that will produce recommendations to improve walkability and cycling around St. Charles. The Plan will incorporate feedback from the community and key stakeholders, as well as members of the general public. The City has launched a Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan website that has more information about the plan.
“Making St. Charles more walkable and bicycle-friendly are consistent themes that come up when we ask residents what we can do to make St. Charles even better,” said City Administrator Heather McGuire. “We are fortunate to have an active downtown and beautiful pathways along the river. Improving access by foot or bicycle to these amenities and to existing trail networks will only add to the vibrancy of our beautiful city.”
The City is working with Civiltech Engineering to develop the plan. We collected initial feedback from anyone who lives in, works in, or visits St. Charles:
- During September and October 2022, an online interactive map was open for community members to share their ideas for walking and bicycling improvements in St. Charles.
- A Bike Plan Information Table was available at Jazz Weekend to collect comments about the plan.
- A Bike Plan Information Table was available at Scarecrow Weekend to collect comments about the plan.
- A press release, newsletter articles, social media, and website posts all publicized links to the survey and plan website.
A public meeting is planned for Spring 2023.
