I think the township should provide and encourage businesses to provide good quality bike racks to encourage bicycling as an alternative form of transportation. Through its trails and bicycle lanes it has provided most of the infrastructure to do so already. What is missing are safe places to park/lock the vehicles.

It would be great to link Rockford High School with the white pine trail via a non-motorized trail. This would allow many students to get to school via bike instead of driving, and generally provide a safe way for all people to get around the township safely without driving.

Please include any additional comments regarding Plainfield Charter Township Parks and Recreation services.
PLEASE provide an access trail or sidewalk down Childsdale Ave. in Rockford between Rockford High School on Kroes Rd. and the White Pine Trail access on House St. Childsdale and the narrow bridge across the water make for very unsafe conditions for pedestrians and bike riders trying to get to the trail. Childsdale is very hilly with NO shoulder and the bridge is also extremely narrow. Many High School teams come from the school down Childsdale to get to the White Pine Trail, and thankfully no one has yet been hurt. With 3 schools on Kroes Rd that could benefit from access to the White Pine Trail, a safe connector trail should be a priority. In addition, many fishermen use the narrow bridge at Childsdale, also making for unsafe conditions.
