Please participate in our upcoming public forum on the City of Atlanta’s sidewalk maintenance program:
Tuesday, July 17, 2012, 6:30 pm – 8 pm
Old Council Chambers, Atlanta City Hall, 55 Trinity Avenue, Atlanta
Atlanta City Council President Ceasar Mitchell, Councilman Michael Julian Bond and Public Works Commissioner Richard Mendoza will participate in a panel discussion moderated by PEDS President & CEO Sally Flocks. We’ll include time for questions from the audience.
Your presence will let City Council members know that voters want the City to make sidewalk maintenance a priority.
People attending the Atlanta Streets Alive event last month showed their support for safer sidewalks by creating a petition composed of 180 signed footprints.
A week later, volunteers helped us present the banner at an Atlanta City Council meeting.
Help keep up the momentum for policy change that enables the City to address the estimated $152 million backlog of broken sidewalks and missing or broken curb ramps. Please participate in the forum and ask your friends and neighbors to do so as well.
