Following a series of public hearings, the Sandy Springs City Council recently adopted the 2022 Community Development Block Grant Annual Action Plan.

The 2022 CDBG allocations will be used for the annual payment of the Section 108 loan with potential allocation for the remaining balance toward other projects listed in the Annual Action Plan including the construction of the Hope Road Sidewalk project.

The project includes approximately 2,000 square feet of 6-foot sidewalk, a 2-foot landscape buffer on the west side of Hope Road from Roswell Road to Dunwoody Place. Additional improvements include ADA upgrades and pedestrian lights in the identified LMI (low/moderate income) target areas.
