|City Sidewalk Planning Process|
The City of Dunwoody created the Sidewalk Improvement Program to provide an objective process to prioritize the City’s sidewalk projects. The City has allotted $100,000 in capital funds to the improvement of our sidewalks for 2010 and anticipates further capital funding for the coming years. The City has identified 21 miles of future sidewalk improvements and 87 future ADA-compliant sidewalk ramps.
The Sidewalk Improvement Policy details the purpose, goals and requirements of our sidewalk improvement program. This policy also includes the priority criteria that will benefit the city as a whole.
Sidewalk Improvement Program scores potential sidewalk projects based on the specific criteria listed in the Sidewalk Improvement Policy.
The Existing and Future Sidewalks Map shows where the city’s potential sidewalk projects will fit with the existing sidewalk throughout the city.
The City will be hosting a Public Information Meeting to discuss the installation of three new sidewalks on Tuesday, August 31, 2010 between 6:30 PM and 8:30 PM at Dunwoody City Hall, 41 Perimeter Center East, Dunwoody, Georgia 30346. The three projects are located on North Peachtree Road south of Chestnut Elementary, Verdon Drive and Dunwoody Park. There will be no formal presentation. City staff will be available anytime between 6:30 PM and 8:30 PM to discuss the projects and answer any questions.
In other related news, the City has been in contact with the GA DOT over the future installation of sidewalks and traffic safety improvements around Kingsley Elementary for the $460,000.00 Safe Routes to Schools grant but these projects will not be installed until the spring.
