It’s a Decatur Minute copy-and-paste-fest on DM today!
Please join us tonight for the annual Decatur Business Association Bonfire and Marshmallow Roast. The event runs 7-8pm and is free to everyone.
We will provide the sticks, marshmallows, and live music! The first group performing will be students from the Community Music Center of Decatur. Following their show will be the Oakhurst Community Choir.
The Decatur Fire Department will be on hand with their big red barrels collecting non-perishable goods and gently used winter coats to share with those in need in our community this holiday season-just drop your donations in the barrel and enjoy the bonfire!

From the Decatur Minute…
As many are aware, bike and pedestrian access along the PATH trail along E. Howard has been rerouted for the last couple of months due to construction at the Trinity Triangle site. At this time, the City of Decatur is pleased to announce that bike and pedestrian access will be restored to this corridor with a new crossing on E. Trinity Place.
Here’s how it works: The new crossing is located between the construction site (west) and the triangle where N. Candler Street meets E. Howard (east). Look for the pedestrian crossing beacon and the street paint. Cyclists and pedestrians traveling east on the PATH Trail or north across E. College Avenue may now cross E. Trinity Place at a new temporary crossing. Cyclists and pedestrians traveling west across E. Trinity Place may now safely make their way across E. College Avenue or west on the PATH Trail.
Be careful! The crossing is well marked, but since it is a new location a bit closer to the railroad crossing, all cyclists, pedestrians and motorists should exercise caution.
The Decatur Police Department and Public Works Department will monitor use of the crossing. Updates will be provided as the project continues. This bike and pedestrian access is considered temporary because use of the new sidewalk is subject to construction phasing at the Trinity Triangle site through 2015.
