ABOUT THE PROJECT:
These meetings are intended for two purposes:
The first, beginning at 6:30 p.m., is to present and discuss design for the Ralph David Abernathy Complete Street project. Complete streets are streets designed for the safe access of all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders of all ages and abilities. The project focuses on Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard between Cascade Avenue, SW to Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive SW.
The second meeting, beginning at 7:00 p.m., will be a discussion on Art on the Atlanta BeltLine and the art selection process. We encourage everyone to attend to share your thoughts and ideas on how to improve the Art program moving forward. We will report out on prior meetings held on this subject.
