Go Edgewater Program To Continue In 2017 With Support From The Edgewater Environmental Sustainability Project & EHS

The results of last year’s Go Edgewater campaign are in (infographic attached). Overall, 54% of people who filled out the post-survey last fall said that they are now walking, biking, or taking transit more often because of the program.

The Go Campaigns are City of Chicago neighborhood campaigns meant to encourage more biking, walking, and transit use.

The City of Chicago received a federal grant to organize Go Campaigns in five Chicago neighborhoods. The first program piloted in 2013 with Go Bronzeville and continued with Go Pilsen (2014), Go Albany Park and Go Edgewater (2015), and Go Garfield Park (2016). Each campaign ran for four months and offered free resources, events, and support to residents to encourage them to walk, bicycle, and take transit more often.

The Edgewater Environmental Sustainability Project and the Edgewater Historical Society will be continuing Go Edgewater this summer.
