DeKalb County Seeking Community Input on Proposed Master Active Living Plan


The DeKalb County Department of Planning and Sustainability and the DeKalb Board of Health will hold a series of public meetings to inform and seek input from residents and stakeholders regarding the proposed Master Active Living Plan (MALP). The proposed plan will address long-term, neighborhood quality of life enhancements to combat health issues in the county. Community input is needed to identify the best locations for sidewalks, paths, trails and bike routes that will link residents to schools, libraries, parks, and community gardens.
