Upcoming Meetings to Wrap Up Community Transportation Plan

The Community Transportation Plan’s closing presentation will take place on Thursday, May 10, from 6-8pm at the Decatur Recreation Center, capping a seven month effort to chart the city’s mobility course through the coming decade. Everyone’s invited.

THURSDAY, MAY 10 | 6-8 P.M.
CLOSING PRESENTATION
DECATUR RECREATION CENTER
231 Sycamore Street, Decatur

  
The process has been an effort to build upon Decatur’s 2007 plan by further incorporating the equity, sustainability, and active living goals that emerged in the 2010 Strategic Plan. A consultant team comprised of jB+a and Toole Design Group helped us through the proceedings.

What to Expect

The evening’s presentation will feature final draft recommendations as they relate to:

  • Priorities for the city’s corridors and intersections
  • Approaches for meeting the community’s multimodal ambitions, balancing motor vehicles, bicyclists, pedestrians, and others most comfortably and effectively
  • Designs for specific street types
  • Anticipated changes in priorities and behaviors in the years ahead, including solutions emerging from the tech sector

The meeting will conclude with breakout activities allowing for final thoughts and comments. That input will then be factored into the plan as it enters the formal adoption process.

Meetings to Come

A draft of the 2018 Community Transportation Plan will shared with the City Commission in the following meeting:

MONDAY, JULY 16 | 6:30-7:30 P.M.

Expect a downloadable file for review to be available to the community in advance of the meeting.
