Just a quick follow up on Decatur’s 25 MPH Speed Limit proposal, which we we reported on in regards to the Citizen Survey a few days back. (BTW, that post has gone sorta viral since then – both Streetsblog and Planetizen have picked it up)
The City of Decatur Project Manager Lena Stevens tells us that the 25 MPH plan is still alive within the walls of City Hall.
She states that the city is still working through the many questions involved in implementing such a proposal, but one idea on the table is that the city would work with the Georgia Department of Transportation in a pilot program where a selected neighborhood would change its speed limits to 25 MPH as a test case before any wide-spread changes were implemented.
Stevens says the plan is still in development and no neighborhood has been selected at this point.
