On October 1, The Trust for Public Land and our partners launched a four-day park planning charrette for the Bloomingdale Trail. More than 200 community members and planners gathered to collectively dream about-and strategically plan for-the future of this former rail line. More about the Bloomingdale Trail.
During this four-day planning session, participants shared their dreams, ideas, and concerns about the trail. Some of the major themes included: different needs for bikers and pedestrians, accessibility and safety issues, art installations, access points, and interactions with neighboring business. This short video captures the process and positive energy of these community meetings.
Join our growing team of insightful and inspiring community members at our next event in December. Stay tuned for details!
