Oak Forest city officials agreed to cooperate with the neighboring municipalities of Crestwood and Midlothian in applying for a grant to pay for a project that would connect bicycle paths in all three communities.

The Invest in Cook Grant program would provide some $450,000 to pay for engineering studies for the planned Natalie Creek Regional Bike Trail. The grant, if received would require the three communities to provide a $105,000 match between them.
