Our city and town’s streets are an important part of the livability of our communities. They ought to be for everyone, whether young or old, motorist or bicyclist, walker or wheelchair user, bus rider or shopkeeper. But too many of our streets are designed with only cars in mind. When we and fail to consider the transportation needs of all people, our health and safety suffers. In 2009 alone, 75 people, including 21 pedestrians, were killed in crashes on DeKalb roads. We can do better. On Wednesday, November 30, 2011 from 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM, groups including the DeKalb Board of Health, ABC, Livable Communities Coalition, and Bike Emory are meeting to discuss ways to make DeKalb County's streets safer for everyone.
The meeting will take place at the DeKalb County Board of Health, 445 Winn Way Suite 354 in Decatur, GA.
