Major Taylor Trail Framework Plan

The Major Taylor Trail Framework Plan is a City of Chicago-led initiative focused on activating the Major Taylor Trail and catalyzing equitable development in the area.

The trail, named after celebrated African American cyclist Marshall “Major” Taylor, stretches from 82nd Street to the Little Calumet River. The study area for this framework plan zeroes in on the area of the trail that traverses Beverly, Morgan Park and West Pullman, from 104th Street to 125th Street. The plan will bring together neighborhoods, communities and stakeholders to find a common vision for the future of the trail and the surrounding area. In the months following its launch in fall 2022, the framework plan team will collect data, engage in community outreach and develop a set of recommendations to bring this hidden gem to its full potential.

More information — as well as an opportunity to leave your thoughts on an interactive map — is available on the dedicated project website
