Lets take a poll. How many Lullwater residents enjoy strolling the BeltLine? Or Old 4th ward Park? Or biking the Silver Comet? or those pastoral rolling hills at Arabia that lead to the monastery? Or perhaps you like to get out of town and head to the country to ride the trails at Serenbe, or stroll along the Riverwalk in Columbus? Even the short, 3-mile Oconee River Greenway in Athens offers a lovely respite along the river. I've used all these trails and even sought them out, because they were a tremendous asset to the community. I stroll the one in my N. Decatur neighborhood daily along the South Peachtree Creek with my dog and I got engaged under a champion tree in Lullwater Conservatory just strolling the trails on an early steamy Sunday solstice morning last June. So if as a Druid Hills, Lullwater resident you've enjoyed any of the sanctuaries I've listed, then you'll know that this is what PATH Foundation would create in your community. Yes you would have to share it with those of us coming to visit and if its as special and historic as you indicate, then I know great care will be taken to construct it and we will all love it and envy folks who get to live along it and simply stroll out their gate to an urban sanctuary. The end result is a win win for all and I bet the poll reveals you all visit and enjoy these other trails frequently. #trailfamily #connectivity is good
I'm not hearing anything about how it plans to mitigate the long and often flooded communities, but i heard that identified in the initial problem statement.???
Love and supported this project. Agree that sites should be at Marta. Please note, Decatur rec center just installed a Dero one out front, which is one block from Marta plaza so not needed there.
My entire family grew up there and then some elders led us all to flee...but it'd love to come back. Several friends are still there from high school in the 70s. Love this revival.
They have fine talent in house to fill that role.
I'd love to throw an issue out there to be potentially solved at the next govathon. Guide me to where to submit it or read on...human services transit is funded, brokered, and provided by 3 state agencies who wish to collaborate and mobility managers across the state are working the people/outreach side of those partnerships. what is really needed is 1 application that all 3 agencies will use so there is coordination of efforts, maximizing efficiencies, stretching of rural/urban transit dollars. DOT, DHS, DCH are the big 3, and the first 2 created 2 routing/trip creation software in silos this year. develop 1 for all 3 please!
living walls as an event was fantastic, showcasing female artists, beautifying public spaces, touring it by bike. all great moments in an ATL event. better still, local neighborhood forum discussing its merits civilly and with a true understanding of the neighborhood because THEY live there. what stinks is local news channels misrepresenting the issue, stirring the pot, and totally missing the beauty of the STORY of the neighborhood coming together, folks visiting the blighted area, art provoking conversation with neighbors. thanks CL and shame on you Ch. 2, Ch. 11 & Huff Post. leave the mural and go visit it.
