Commissioner explains resolution to support backcountry driving route

Jun 27, 2018 11:37AM ● By Editor

Cook County Commissioner Heidi Doo-Kirk introduced a resolution this week to support the proposed ‘Border to Border Touring Route’ (B2B) through Cook County. Doo-Kirk said she drafted the resolution because Cook County is a good fit for such a concept. She presented her resolution to the county board during a meeting Tuesday, June 26.

Doo-Kirk said she feels this resolution will show that the county is involved with the process of planning the proposed B2B touring route.

As this was the first reading of the resolution during a county board meeting, the commissioners did not vote on the issue during Tuesday’s meeting. The resolution will likely appear as an agenda item during the next regularly-scheduled meeting of the county board, which is Tuesday, July 10.

WTIP’s Joe Friedrichs spoke with Doo-Kirk about the resolution to support the B2B (follow the link below to listen to the interview)
