The Grid Chicago Network is a collection of articles from 43 websites, updated twice a day. The Network page always shows a 7 day stretch (right now there’s 73 articles listed). Here’re the most interesting articles I saw today:
- Longer School Day Could Squeeze Funding for Chicago Afterschool Bike Programs
on Chicargo Bike
If there’s a longer school day, there might be a shorter after-school program, which could mean less money for that after-school program.
- Governor Quinn signs speed camera legislation for Chicago
on The Expired Meter
“With little fanfare this morning, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn signed SB965, the Chicago speed camera bill into law.”
- Berwyn South School District 100 Adopts School Travel Plan
on Active Transportation Alliance’s blog
“The School Travel Plan provides the school district and the City of Berwyn with a list of recommended education, encouragement, enforcement and engineering strategies focused on making it safer and more convenient for students in the district to walk and bike to school.”
And on my personal blog, Steven Can Plan, I take a different look at the future and potential of the bike boulevard on Berteau Avenue, and compare it to “neighborhood greenways” in other cities.
