The Decatur City Commission meets this evening to vote on a Decatur PATH Connectively and Implementation Plan.
According to a note from Deputy City Manager Hugh Saxon, “The Plan identifies 9.2 miles of bicycle and pedestrian trail improvements in Decatur in 7 segments at a cost of approximately $12 million over a 10-year period.”
The Commerce Drive Cycle Track is the plan’s top priority, connecting an already approved and planned Church Street Cycle Track and the currently under construction North McDonough Cycle Track. The Commerce Drive Cycle Track runs along the westside the of the Commerce Drive downtown bypass and then turns and goes up Trinity to connect with N. McDonough.
The Church Street Cycle Track would take cyclists north to Medlock Road and connect up with the Mason Mill Trail via Medlock Park.
The planned East Decatur Greenway and a proposed cycle track from McDonough thru Oakhurst Village to Kirkwood via Oakview Road are also included on the map.
The Commission meets tonight at 7:30p. Here’s the full agenda for the meeting.
