About this Article

Arlington Heights will be considering several new measures this spring to make the village more bike friendly, officials said. "Part of what attracts people to Arlington Heights is the ability to hop on your bike and ride somewhere," said Alan Medsker, chairman of the Bike and Pedestrian Commission. Retail locations would be required to have a number of bicycle parking spots equal to 5 percent of the vehicle parking requirements.
