County 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.

re:TH!NK reSET is Underway!
re:TH!NK has had a lot of success over the last 7 years! re:TH!NK is looking to "reSET" our priorities and we need your input! At this re:TH!NK reSET meeting, we will reflect on what has been accomplished, look at our current landscape, and determine where to go next.
Our October 4th reSET event was the first of several rounds of discussion. Our Teams worked to identify their top problem statements which were shared with the Leadership Council in late November. Stay tuned for a community launch event in early 2017! Contact us with questions.
