Village of Pleasant Plains


A public meeting will take place on Thursday, September 28th, 2023, at 6:00pm at Village Hall,  200 W. 4th Street, Pleasant Plains, IL.


The purpose of this meeting is to provide general information to the public regarding the application for funding through the Illinois Safe Routes to School Program administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation for improving the safety of children in grades K-12 when walking and biking to/from school and to encourage more children, including those with disabilities, to walk and bike to/from school, thereby encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle from an early age.


The public is invited to attend and comment on such issues as economic and environmental impacts, service area, alternatives to the project or any other pertinent issues regarding the project.
