Approved Connectivity Master Plan
The City Commission adopted the Decatur PATH Foundation Connectivity and Implementation Plan at its regular meeting on Monday, December 19. The Plan identifies 9.2 miles of bicycle and pedestrian trail improvements in 7 segments at a cost of approximately $12 million over a 10-year period. When implemented, it will provide a safe network of protected bike lanes throughout Decatur and beyond, including connections to important regional destinations such at the Atlanta Beltline and Emory University.
The Plan recommends the Commerce Drive Cycle Track as the first segment for implementation. This will provide a connection with two City-approved bicycle and pedestrian improvements, the North McDonough Streetscape Improvements (under construction) and the Church Street Cycle Track (planned for late 2017).
The Plan was prepared by the PATH Foundation, its consultant, the Kaizen Collaborative, and a steering committee of Decatur residents and City staff.
