Epstein is currently working with a cross-departmental team of staff from the Village of Glenview in updating their Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan, which outlines policy recommendations, traffic control devices, roadway improvements, trail and sidewalk connections and needed facilities for the purposes of enhancing the bicycling and walking environment in Glenview.
The Village last updated its Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan in 2007, which called for the installation of more than 50 miles of bicycle routes, lanes and shared-use paths along with 15 miles of sidewalks with improved push button signals, crosswalks and pedestrian countdown clocks.
Epstein is currently analyzing the existing conditions throughout the Village, then seeking feedback from the public and local stakeholders in June and July. The final draft of the plan is projected to be completed in November.
Another additional way Epstein is helping Glenview with this master plan update is through the development of a brand identity for the program to allow the Village a better way to communicate the goals of the program to the residents of Glenview. With that in mind, Epstein’s Ryan Peterson, our planner for the project, designed the logo that you see here featuring a bear riding a bicycle. Why a bear? Well the bear is Glenview’s mascot having claimed this fame over 100 years ago when a Children’s Fountain was dedicated back in 1917, a meatal & stone installation featuring a bear at the top with an iron bar in its mouth from which two lamps hang.
