The Village has begun drafting the Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan and the ADA Transition Plan, two documents that will play a key role in guiding future bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure throughout the Village.
A Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan inventories the current bicycle and pedestrian facilities and conditions within a community while also recommending new opportunities. The ADA Transition Plan identifies existing programs, services, facilities, policies, and procedures that require changes, and outlines the steps necessary to become a more accessible community.
March 31, 2023, Update: All public comments submitted on the draft plans along with Village responses can be viewed here.
Feb. 1, 2023, Update: The VIllage's consultant has completed a draft Bike & Pedestrian Plan and ADA Transition Plan:
- The Bike & Pedestrian Plan can be viewed here
- The ADA Transition Plan can be viewed here
Both documents are also available for review at the Village Hall Resolution Center.
The ADA Transition Plan has been created to address accessibility needs within the public rights of way specifically. It does not include information on the Village of Glenview’s programs, practices, or building facilities unrelated to public rights of way.
The Village invites residents to submit comments about the draft plans to email@example.com through 5 p.m. Friday, March 10, 2023. Comments may also be dropped off to the Community Development department at Village Hall (2500 East Lake Avenue).
- Project Kickoff – May 2022

Community Engagement Opportunities
The project team will be meeting with stakeholders from local taxing jurisdictions, the business community and neighboring communities to receive input about the Plan.
Resident feedback will play a big role in the development of the Plan, as well, and there are a number of ways to make your voice heard and contribute your feedback to this process.
Interactive Map: Click on the map below to pin comments on the map. These comments can suggest locations/routes for future expansion or discuss existing conditions. The mapping exercise will be open until Aug. 1, 2022.
Online Survey: In addition to the map, residents are encouraged to fill out a short survey. This will help the project team gauge the current rates of biking and walking through the Village. The survey is now closed.
Bike & Walking Tours: The project team will host separate bicycle and walking tours around the Village to discuss key aspects of the project, areas of interest and collect resident feedback. These activities are open to up to 25 members of the public each.
Bike Tour: 3-5:30 p.m. Friday, July 15. The tour will begin at the Glenview Public Library.
Walking Tour: 9-11 a.m. Saturday, July 30. The tour will begin at Pleasant Ridge Elementary (1730 Sunset Ridge).
Community Events: The project team will be out at various community events this summer to collect feedback and surveys from residents. See you there!
Open House: On Nov. 3, 2022, the project team hosted a Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan Open House at Park Center (2400 Chestnut Ave, Glenview, IL 60026). This Open House gave residents a chance to learn more about the entire planning process, read the draft Plan, and engage with the consulting team that has been working on it.
