Non-motorized Commuter Pathways
To reduce dependency on cars and encourage cleaner and healthier alternatives such as walking and biking, I would propose the construction of non-motorized commuter pathways. These paths would interconnect key areas of the city, and could potentially connect to The Beltline in West End.
MARTA & City Property
Do more improvements like this on city property even if MARTA won't. The stop in the left photograph, for example, on Main Street needs a garbage can and/or a shelter like the stop in the right photograph.
Create a Multi-Use Pathway along Herschel Road and improve the pedestrian crossing at the Camp Creek Parkway intersection
Ensure a Complete Street Corridor through Airport City from Main Street to the Golf Course
What is a Complete Street? ▼
A Complete Street is a corridor that is designed and operated to enable safe access for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders of all ages and abilities. Complete Streets help create livable communities for various types of users, including children, people with disabilities, and older adults. Complete Streets improve equity, safety, and public health, while reducing transportation costs and traffic woes. Source:https://smartgrowthamerica.org
