Please get behind Brewster Creek Trail

Posted11/1/2018 1:00 AM

Signing this petition does not build the Brewster Creek Trail. Signing this petition says to our elected neighbors that a safe off-road path is important to us and we would really like you to come together to build this trail.

The Brewster Creek Trail has been a dotted 1.99-mile high priority line in DuPage County since 2008. The Stearns bridge over the Fox River and the County Farm bridge were dotted lines for 30 years. It takes time and community to join those dots.


If you live in Bartlett, signing the petition says you would like to have a family ride from the Nature Center to the Community Center pool. If you live in Evanston, you would say your club has a safe ride to DeKalb. In Oakbrook, a safe ride to Crystal Lake; in Aurora a safe ride to Lake Forest; in Naperville a safe ride to Huntley.

If you drive a car, hey, no more bicycles riding the shoulder. If you are a restaurant in Bartlett, you would say we are an oasis for your rest, and enjoy a fine meal on your travels.

Please join over 500 friends who have signed the petition to our elected representatives. Google, then search Build the Brewster Creek Trail.
