[ARCHIVED] Skokie Valley Trail Alignment


In partnership with the Villages of Glenview, Skokie, and Wilmette, Northfield has received two grants to fully fund the Phase II study of the Skokie Valley Trail (SVT).  The SVT is a regional trail which, once completed, will stretch from Chicago to Lake Bluff.  Before the communities can begin the Phase II study, Northfield must first determine the Trail’s route alignment from Willow to Voltz Road.  

Click here to view a detailed report of the route options.  These options will be discussed by the Village Board at their August 18 5:30 PM Committee of the Whole meeting. Out of an abundance of caution and for the safety of our residents, all public Village meetings will be held via videoconference for the foreseeable future.  

Click here to view comments submitted by the public regarding the Trail alignment.

On August 18 at 5:30 PM, you can click here to join the webinar: .  For meeting audio only, call phone number (312) 626-6799, Webinar ID: 834 1491 5117

Everyone is welcome to attend online and participants will be given an opportunity to voice their thoughts on the route options.  You may also share your thoughts by emailing  Emailed comments must be received before 4:30 PM August 17 to be included in the public record.

Questions regarding the project can be directed to Director of Administrative Services Melissa DeFeo at (847) 745-3554 or
