N. Decatur Road Designs to be Presented Wednesday, June 21

Late last year, interested residents turned out to “help shape a safer, more habitable future for North Decatur Road.” Now, on Wednesday, June 21 from 6-8pm, the project team returns to unveil proposed design solutions culled from the community’s input.

The meeting will be held at the North Decatur Presbyterian Church, 611 Medlock Road. It is organized as a presentation and Q&A, followed by an opportunity for further community input, so participants are encouraged to arrive by 6pm. Your feedback will shape the future of this corridor.

If you live in proximity to the North Decatur Road corridor; drive, walk, bike, or ride transit in the area; want to bike or walk in the area but don’t feel safe; or otherwise support Decatur’s long-term goal of complete streets for all, then make plans now to join us.


In 2018, Decatur’s Community Transportation Plan set forth general safety improvement recommendations for North Decatur Road’s long-discussed intersection with Superior Avenue. And in 2020, hundreds of residents participating in the city’s 10-year Strategic Planning process rallied behind those recommendations and reaffirmed the need for action along the corridor.

We’re imagining and mapping out ideas for a better stretch of roadway overall so city leaders have a solid place to start in working with their peers in DeKalb County towards long-term improvements along the corridor.

See you there.
