Proposed Transportation Committee Recommendations for August

The Transportation Committee has proposed that SAND vote on the following recommendations. If SAND approves these measures then they will be sent to  NPU-W for consideration, which if approved would require the City to consider it and render an opinion and/or act. 

 

Glenwood Ave. SE truck traffic restrictions

That Glenwood Ave. SE, between Moreland Ave. SE and Bill Kennedy Way SE be designated as a restricted local truck freight route with a weight limit of 18 tons and a truck length limit of 35 feet with the exception of those vehicles that possess a legitimate bill of lading requiring access to Glenwood Ave. or immediately adjacent streets or sites and the vehicles currently serving the Argos concrete plant as currently owned and operated.

 

Moreland Ave/Glenwood Ave Intersection realignment project

1) That the City of Atlanta acquire an additional amount of property along Glenwood Ave. SE on both sides of Moreland Ave. SE so that adequate right of way is available to provide dedicated and unimpeded bike lane capacity and retain currently proposed streetscape improvements. It is recommended that a total amount of apx. 1,000 sq. Ft. of additional ROW (apx. 200' long x 5' wide) would be the minimal amount of additional ROW property required.

2) That within the context and work plan for this project, an appropriate amount of funding for expanded sidewalk repair and replacement along Moreland Ave. SE be allocated from the 'city-wide' portion of the Atlanta Infrastructure Bond Fund line item known as 'city-wide sidewalk repair and replacement' for repairs to sidewalks extending south on both sides of Moreland Ave SE from Glenwood Ave. SE to Ormewood Ave SE..

3) That all streetscape fixtures, fittings and facilities to be installed within the context of this project meet or exceed current City of Atlanta complete streets design standards and criteria.

Imagine Memorial Corridor Study

As you may have seen in recent local news, Council Member Natalyn Archibong introduced a motion within the City Council to impose a development moratorium on Memorial Drive. The goal of the moratorium is to allow the community and various stakeholders to have input into the redevelopment along the entire corridor and is limited to six months.

The Office of Planning is currently conducting its review of the "Imagine Memorial" study.  The goal of the study is to help open the discussion on near, mid and long term development along the Memorial Drive corridor.

Our comments and feedback will be sent to the Office of Planning to assist them in the creation of the final document. The Imagine Memorial Corridor Study in PDF format is available here.
