Wanna talk sidewalks? You know you do!

Posted By on Tue, Jul 30, 2013 at 11:37 AM

If you want to help do something about the sad state of the city's sidewalks, you should consider dropping by City Hall tonight. From PEDS, Atlanta's pedestrian advocacy organization:

A Sidewalk Task Force co-chaired by Atlanta City Council members Natalyn Archibong and Carla Smith held its last meeting in May. Participants recommended changes needed to enable the City to repair more broken sidewalks.

Please join us on July 30 to learn more about Atlanta's current sidewalk maintenance program and changes recommended by Public Works Commissioner Richard Mendoza and PEDS CEO Sally Flocks. Recommendations differ, so each will give brief presentations. Following that, Councilmembers Archibong and Aaron Watson will join Mendoza and Flocks for a question and answer session with the audience.

PEDS and the City of Atlanta want to hear from people who live, work or play in Atlanta, so the forum will provide plenty of time for comments or questions from the audience.

If you're a Facebook kind of person, here's the event page. The fun starts at 6 p.m. in the Old City Council chambers.
