The City of Douglasville broke ground on two sidewalk projects Wednesday, August 1st, that will help to provide additional pedestrian connectivity within the community.
The installation of sidewalks in a community is directly in line with the goals of The Atlanta Regional Commission’s 2007 Bicycle Transportation & Pedestrian Walkways Plan. In particular, they will help support the following goals:
-To provide a safe and effective network of pedestrian walkways for the entire Atlanta Region by improving roadside walking conditions and crossing conditions at both uncontrolled locations and signalized intersections.
-Provide safe and convenient pedestrian conditions around high demand destinations that are consistent with ARC land use policies outlined in the Regional Development Plan and Envision6.
-Enhance the health, fitness, and quality of life of the citizens of Atlanta Region.
