ARC’s New Bike/Ped Plan Available for Public Comment

Walk Bike Thrive! – ARC’s new regional walking and bicycling plan – is now online for public comment at www.atlantaregional.com/bikeped.

The plan is divided into three parts – Recommendations; Regional Travel Assessment; and Public Participation.

Part 1 details strategies to help build walk-friendly and bike-friendly communities across the Atlanta region and make walking and bicycling safe, convenient, and normal ways to travel. Recommendations also include the region’s first comprehensive vision for a connected regional trail network.

Part 2 is a by-the-numbers look at how active transportation impacts the safety, mobility, and economic competitiveness of the region.

Part 3 highlights the public support for walkable communities and a bike-friendly region.

ARC will be accepting comments on the plan through January 15, 2016. Please send comments to bikeped@atlantaregional.com.

    My town allowed neighbors to merge nonconforming lots and move boundary lines
    and still keep grandfather rights across the street from me. We have been here for 30 years and the 40 foot town right of way between us is only paved 17 feet wide and only on our side not down the middle. My question is who is responsible to bring the roadway up to minimal fire code width
