Berwyn resident Justin Wier has organized a meeting next week for locals to discuss how to make Berwyn more safe and conducive to biking and walking. The meeting is scheduled to take place at 7 p.m. Oct. 25 at the Garlic Clove Restaurant at 6814 Windsor Ave.
“Although Berwyn does have access to Metra and the Blue Line, our goal is to increase public transportation, walking and biking because these forms of transportation are healthier and less expensive,” he said.
Goals for the Berwyn chapter of Chicagoland’s Active Transport Alliance, plans to talk to Berwyn city officials and methods for making Berwyn better for bikers and pedestrians will likely stem from the meeting Tuesday, according to Wier.
The Active Transport Alliance’s mission, according to its website, is “to make bicycling, walking and public transit so safe, convenient and fun that we will achieve a significant shift from environmentally harmful, sedentary travel to clean, active travel.”
