Berteau Greenway: Public Meeting Thursday

You’re invited to this public meeting on the proposed Greenway on Berteau. Alderman Cappleman’s 46th Ward Transportation Master Plan calls for a Greenway in our ward, but that has not yet been achieved. Our recommendation is for Leland. Come to the public meeting to learn about what the 47th Ward is doing!

Berteau Greenway Public Meeting
Thurs., August 16
6:00 PM – 7:30 p.m.
Welles Park Gym
2333 W. Sunnyside Avenue

Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) and 47th Ward staff will present final concepts for the proposed Berteau Neighborhood Greenway. The goal of this project is to improve safety on Berteau, between Lincoln and Clark, and create a roadway that is more comfortable for all modes of transportation.

The concepts being presented will reflect public input gathered at previous community meetings. All are welcome to attend in the community meeting room at the Welles Park Gymnasium. There will be a short presentation beginning at 6:20 followed by an open house to review the draft plans.

Contact Bill Higgins with any questions or comments at: More information on the project is available on the 47th Ward website at:

    Yes, Iʻd like to see the route extended to the lake, maybe through Grace, or a little north of there.
