Updated 2009 Northeastern Illinois Regional Greenways and Trails Plan

"An important function of the Regional Greenways and Trails Plan and the plan map is to support the programs of open space jurisdictions which are working to preserve and manage greenway corridors. Much of the on-the-ground implementation will occur through the initiative of the forest preserve and conservation districts, park districts, municipalities, counties, and state and federal agencies, including the Illinois Department of Natural Resources and the Illinois Department of Transportation. The open space, outdoor recreation, and natural resource advocacy organizations of the region play an invaluable role in plan implementation.

This summary is intended as an overview of the officially adopted Northeastern Illinois Regional Greenways and Trails Plan produced by The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP)."
