Forest Hills Sidewalks Now
This petition requests that the Village of Western Springs Board of Trustees, employees and agents play and active role in the development of a plan to support universal sidewalks in the neighborhood of Forest Hills. This includes but is not limited to:
1. Village Board approval of a $16,000 feasibility study to build sidewalks, including plans that mitigate the loss of trees and community infrastructure.
2. After the feasibility study and in partnership with select community members, Village Board and Village Staff will develop solution alternatives including cost (e.g., competitive bid), approach (e.g., phases and timing) and financing options to support the project.
3. Village Board and Village Staff will also actively pursue alternative funding options including applications for federal, state and governmental funding to offset the cost of the project on a go forward basis.
By signing this petition, you are requesting that the Village of Western Springs plays an active role in resolving this decades old problem that will support enhanced safety in our community. Thank you for your support!
