On Another Note...

One initiative that is gaining steam is the plan to encourage the Village of Glen Ellyn (and other entities) to proceed with the comprehensive plan to build more bike/hike trails in our area. The League has written a letter to the Village Environmental Commission and is dialoguing with members in hopes to spur action on these plans. If bike/hike trails is of interest to you, please follow the League's Facebook page so you can see what is new and what you can do to help move things along.
