Clayton County Commissioner Felicia Franklin is planning to host a pedestrian safety town hall on Aug. 5.

The event, which will take place at 6 p.m. at South Clayton Recreation Center, 1837 McDonough Road in Hampton, is in response to the need of adequate lighting, continuous sidewalks and safe crosswalks, the commissioner’s office said. It also will stream via Zoom at

The town hall is a continuation of discussions on smart mobility and pedestrian access Clayton has been having through a partnership with Georgia Tech.

“I need your help as we continue to push for funding for continuous sidewalks, crosswalks and lighting,” Franklin said in a release about the town hall.
