The Decatur Bicycle Coalition has been working with the PATH Foundation and the City of Decatur to look into ways to build safe bicycle infrastructure for people of all ages. On 19 October there will be a public meeting where the PATH Foundation will present a proposal for a Decatur pedestrian and bike master plan. We’ve seen the initial draft and it is outstanding. For example, one proposed route would connect Decatur to Kirkwood and the Beltline, thus providing many neighborhoods (downtown Decatur, Oakhurst, Kirkwood, Edgewood, Reynoldstown, and the Beltline neighborhoods) with a protected, multi-use trail system. If you can, please come to the public meeting and show how much support there is for safe infrastructure: Wednesday, October 19th from 6 to 8 pm in the Decatur Recreation Center, located at 231 Sycamore St.
