The City of Naperville is asking community members to take a survey to learn more information about commuters’ patterns. In 2019 the city approved the Commuter Parking and Access Work Plan, which outlines goals and tasks to address issues with the city’s commuter programs and implement system improvements. The city wants to see if they need to adjust their 2019 plan, as the COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on commuting. The deadline to fill out the survey is October 15.
