Dunwoody - Routine Accommodation in Action!
Could we take a picture like this in Dunwoody later this year??
Talk the Talk, Walk the Walk! That's what's happening in Dunwoody. I've been bitten too many times and might even have some ancestry from Missouri with the "Show Me" syndrome. But much to my VERY PLEASANT surprise on April 11th, the Dunwoody Public Works Director, Michael Smith is proposing to add Bike Lanes to resurfacing projects THIS YEAR. Yes, you read that right. Now. This year. In 2011. Not in some "Proposed / Planned / Programmed" never-never land.
The best segment in my humble opinion is on Roberts Drive, which begins very close to the Dunwoody Village area, past the Dunwoody Nature Center to Austin Elementary School. Talk about supporting Safe Routes to School and neighborhood connectivity!
Going in the "Above & Beyond" category was the addition of getting bike lanes on North Shallowford, North Peachtree and Peachford. Simply through restriping lane widths to 10 feet.

What a great surprise.... I'm geeked to say the least.
Thank you, Mr. Smith!!
