Greenspace and Bike/Pedestrian Public Meetings
Atlanta Greenspace Meeting
On May 21 and May 22, the City of Atlanta Department of Planning and Community Development (DPCD) will host a second series of public forums for Atlanta Greenspace, a new strategic plan to implement a city-wide greenspace system within the city. Hosted by the DPCD Bureau of Planning, City leaders will present a draft plan for a new greenspace system based on the first series of public forums held in January 2007. The draft plan outlines the overall framework, direction and action steps to grow and manage Atlanta's greenspace system. The format will be an interactive workshop with breakout group sessions to facilitate discussion on direct actions and strategies that can be taken to achieve the greenspace goals.

Atlanta Region Bike and Pedestrian Meeting
Also on Tuesday, May 22, ARC will host a Community Open House Workshop to present a summary and draft of the updated Atlanta Region Bicycle Transportation and Pedestrian Walkways Plan. This workshop will be a follow-up to a series of five workshops held around the region in October 2006, at which participants were able to offer their opinion on what constitutes an acceptable level of accommodation for bicyclists and pedestrians on the Atlanta region's major roadways. The Bicycle/Pedestrian Plan evaluates existing conditions, identifies strategies for improving biking and walking along the region's roadways, and contains policy recommendations for ARC and local governments. Those in attendance at the May 22 workshop will learn how public input has been incorporated into the Plan so far, get a preview of the policy recommendations to be incorporated in the Plan update, and be invited to comment.
Time and Location:
Tuesday, May 22 from 4 - 8 p.m. in the Conversation Pit on the Lower Level of the Atlanta-Fulton County Central Library, One Margaret Mitchell Square, in Downtown Atlanta
