Minutes from Meeting with Jay Pryor
This video was taken during evening rush hour on Monday, August 4th -- just a few days ago.
The video clearly shows cars crossing the yellow center line & Roswell PD in the comments section clearly states it’s permissible to do such. I gave examples of a Post truck. Delivery Truck, UPS. Or in rural areas, farm tractors.
and that it was up to us what we did with them (-vs- strictly motor vehicles)
and how it’ll be a connected network. Once it’s connected, there will be more & more people using them.
As an example, I discussed the vast numbers of parents driving their kids to school. Said if we could have SAFE Routes to School (mentioned Decatur), then a few percentage of those parents just might let their kids walk or ride their bike to school, REDUCING motor vehicle congestion in the morning.
Told the city WIDENED a couple hundred feet on Roberts (for about $50k) on a particular segment to get the extra width to have the Bike Lanes. Said it was 100% within the Public Right of Way. Said that this year (2014) just now the Council has approved installing sidewalks on the west side of Roberts along the same segment, making it a “Complete Street”.
They are building out a network within the business district of trails to connect the office buildings to the two MARTA stations, shops, restaurants and offices.
The photo was taken on the under construction Dunwoody Village Parkway. (I said we had handed out over 1,000 of these in the 4th of July Parade.)
