There will be a public meeting on June 22 to discuss a plan to turn Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard into a “complete street.”
It begins at 6:30 p.m. and will be held at KIPP Strive Academy, 1444 Lucille Avenue SW, Atlanta, GA 30310. The location can be reached via MARTA Bus #67.
According to the announcement, “Atlanta BeltLine Inc. will hold a Southwest Study Group public meeting to present and seek feedback on a visioning plan for Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard streetscapes, between Cascade Avenue and Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive, developed from the input we received at our April 17 public meeting. As we shift the focus from visioning to concept development, we will also seek input regarding which aspects of the visioning plan should be prioritized for implementation.”
The southwest Study Group, which includes residents of the Westview, West End, Adair Park, Pittsburgh, Mechanicsville, Oakland City, Bush Mountain, Capitol View, Capitol View Manor and Sylvan Hills neighborhoods, is invited to attend.
ABI is managing the project on behalf of the city’s Renew Atlanta infrastructure bond program.
“The project will design and construct street modifications from Cascade Avenue to Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive,” the press release says. “The project’s intention is to improve the safety of the corridor for all users, by providing non-vehicular connections between the neighborhoods, the activity center at Cascade Avenue, the West Lake MARTA station, and the Atlanta BeltLine’s Westside Trail.”
