  1. Why are City of Decatur officials listed to speak at a meeting that does not directly concern the City of Decatur? This is a Dekalb County issue.

    1. Part of the dangerous stretch between Scott Blvd and Clairmont Rd falls in City of Decatur limits. While DeKalb County’s definitely been responsive on this since receiving the official requests from citizens for action, it’s not just their issue to fix, nor can they do it all on their own. It’s going to take all involved govt agencies and continued involvement from PEDS, the bikes advocacy groups, and the community to make it happen. And of course our wonderful local media– especially Decatur Metro since it’s here where the initiative was sparked!

    2. I live very near this stretch of road but in the city. I use the area quite a bit. It impacts all nearby residents regardless if boundary.
