bikesontrailCounty Nearly Completed with Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan

The Winnebago County Health, Highway, and Parks Departments are almost ready to finalize the "Connecting People and Communities: Winnebago County Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan." The year-long planning process has gathered input from a 16-member steering committee and over 175 residents on what would make walking and bicycling easier and safer in the rural parts of the County.

The Plan will go through County Committees connected to the County Departments involved, and be presented for a vote on a resolution of acceptance at the Winnebago County Board meeting meeting on Tuesday, January 17, 2017.

UPDATE: The Winnebago County Board meeting on Tuesday, January 17th has been cancelled.
