Please participate in our upcoming public forum on the City of Atlanta’s sidewalk maintenance program:
Tuesday, July 17, 2012, 6:30 pm – 8 pm
Council Chambers, Atlanta City Hall
55 Trinity Avenue, Atlanta
10 minute walk from Five Points and GA State MARTA stations. Directions, parking and transit info here.
Atlanta City Council President Ceasar Mitchell, Councilmembers Kwanza Hall and Michael Julian Bond, and Public Works Commissioner Richard Mendoza will participate in a panel discussion moderated by PEDS President & CEO Sally Flocks. We’ll include time for questions from the audience.
Please come! Your presence will let City Council members know that sidewalk maintenance is a priority for voters!
Help us spread the word via Facebook: join the event, post a link, or invite friends on our Facebook Event Page.
People attending the Atlanta Streets Alive event in May showed their support for safer sidewalks by creating a petition composed of 180 signed footprints.
Help keep up the momentum for policy change that enables the City to address the estimated $152 million backlog of broken sidewalks and missing or broken curb ramps. Please participate in the forum and ask your friends and neighbors to do so as well.
PEDS thanks Pam Aerts, Matt and Marilyn Bolch, Danae McBurney, Melany Chambers, Matt Monroe, Angus, Ewan and Beatrice Pritchard and Melanie Turner for your help at Atlanta Streets Alive, and to JoAnn Awada, Amanda Fox, Saul Kaplan, Lisa Safstrom and Carole Willis for holding up the banner at Atlanta City Hall!
More photos showing the footprint petition are posted on our Facebook page.
