Commission

The Warrenville Bicyclist and Pedestrian Advisory Commission is dedicated to continuously improving the bicycling and walking experience in Warrenville. The Commission was established in 2006 as an advisory board to the City Council to support, encourage, and promote safe bicycling and walking throughout the City through capital improvements, amenities, events, and programs. Their mission is to work with the local agencies, businesses owners, and citizens of Warrenville, to identify needs, desires, and opportunities as well as to coordinate efforts to provide for bicyclist and pedestrian amenities.

The Commission's primary roles and responsibilities are the following:

  • Plan for bicyclists and pedestrians as part of a citywide and regional multi-use transportation system.
  • Evaluate and prioritize ways to improve the level of bicycle and pedestrian services, trails, paths, on-street bikeways, and other economically-feasible projects.
  • Identify high-priority projects that improve safety for motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians reducing car and bike/pedestrian conflicts.
  • Encourage bicycle commuting and walking in lieu of motorized transportation and recreation.
  • Initiate bicycle and pedestrian safety programs and related events.
  • Host public meetings to create safe routes to schools and parks.
  • Provide resources and educational materials on bicycling and walking.
  • Attain the League of American Bicyclists' designation of “Bicycle Friendly Community” for the City of Warrenville.
  • Establish communications with the League of Illinois Bicyclists, Active Transportation Alliance, Illinois Prairie Path, the Trails Coordinator of the DuPage County Trails System, and other related community groups.
  • Make recommendations to City Council for the planning of bikeway and pedestrian routes.

To aid in those goals, there is a Bikeway Implementation Plan that details desired improvements in the City's infrastructure.

The Commission’s Staff Liaison is Planner/GIS Technician Ginny McIntosh. She can be reached at (630) 393-9050 or at e-mail.

The Bicyclist and Pedestrian Advisory Commission’s efforts in achieving its goals are dependent largely on ascertaining the needs of the community. Feel free to contact Commission members with any thoughts or concerns relevant to bicyclist and pedestrian issues. With citizen assistance, the Commission strives to keep the City of Warrenville an attractive destination for bicyclists and pedestrians.
