Reminder: Memorial Drive safety meeting TONIGHT

This is a reminder that the first of two meetings for the resurfacing and restriping of Memorial Drive is TONIGHT starting at 6 p.m. at Lang Carson Community Center in Reynoldstown. There will be a short presentation at 6 p.m., followed by an open house with GDOT staff and community volunteers. You don’t need to stay the whole time.

If you are available, we would greatly appreciate your attendance and filling out a comment card. We need to have a strong community voice in support of this project to ensure it is fully executed by GDOT. If you have concerns, we need to hear those, too. Tonight’s meeting and the Nov. 8 meeting have the same information. It is not necessary to attend both.

Help Spread the Word and Attend

Saturday, June 3rd  at 1:00 pm at the Virginia Highland Bike Share Station

Do you ever go to a meeting about a transportation project and ask yourself how did this project come about? Well often it’s from a planning study- Cycle Atlanta is one of those types of studies which will make very specific recommendations for roadways including Highland Avenue, Euclid Avenue and Whiteford Avenue to better connect people to the Inman Park- Reynoldstown MARTA Station. Be a part of the decision making process! And share this facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/AtlantaPlanningDevelopment/

Project: Cycle Atlanta: An Appendix to Atlanta’s Transportation Plan is focused on creating an implementation strategy to build a high quality bicycle network to get people safely to six selected MARTA stations including the Edgewood- Candler Park and the Inman Park-Reynoldstown MARTA Station.

Who: The Department of City Planning is leading the project. Alta Planning +Design have been contracted to lead the design and creation of the document. You! We have invited each of you  because you have taken on a huge job by volunteering your time with a neighborhood organization. And your community.

When: The first meeting will take place on Saturday, June 3rd  at 1:00 pm at the Virginia Highland Bike Share Station (corner of Virginia and Highland).  Please share this meeting invite:https://www.facebook.com/AtlantaPlanningDevelopment/ Bring a bike or rent a bike share bike- so you can explore the different routes with us. This is during the Virginia Highland Summerfest- so arrive early to enjoy the awesome neighborhood event and then join us on our ride.

The full study process will be from May 2017- March 2018.

Why:  Did you know that 30% of people who board at the Edgewood-Candler Park and Inman Park-Reynoldstown MARTA stations walk or bike to the station? And that about 2,000 people board a day at each station.  They do! This work is important for community members who are already walking and biking to the station. By planning safe ways to get to MARTA  it can improve people’s lives that currently use the station, and attract new ridership and reduce the amount of cars on the road.

Also Atlanta voters passed two major sales taxes that support transportation- TSPLOST and the More MARTA tax. This study will inform the decisions about MARTA station and roadway improvements funded by those new taxes.
