We need your input


The Northern Lakeshore Trail Connectivity Plan is a regional effort to improve walking and bicycling connections between and among the communities of Beach Park, Zion, Winthrop Harbor,  Waukegan, and North Chicago.

We are working together to lead the Chicagoland area in bicycle and pedestrian-welcoming destinations for residents and visitors.

With the support of the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP), we have engaged in a planning process that involves residents, businesses, trail users, and other stakeholders in working towards safer, greener, healthier, connected, and vibrant communities.

With your help, the process will result in a connectivity plan that capitalizes on the resources of the area and provides an experience that is unique to the northern lakeshore.
