Dickens Neighborhood Greenway Proposal
Chicago Department of Transportation has submitted a proposal for a Neighborhood Greenway. This is designed for their mission to create safe streets for all Chicagoans. Pedestrians, Bicyclists and Vehicles. West Dickens Avenue was recognized as being a low stress and high comfort route which is why it was chosen during studies for the Vision Zero planning. Approximately 85% of all funding for this greenway will be dedicated to pedestrian safety, making them visible, safe and produce traffic calming. The rest of the funding defines a more predictable travel of bikes and vehicles. Below please note presentations from community meetings discussing the proposal as it evolved with community input.
