Alpharetta is seeking public input on a new bike path and pedestrian trail.

Alpha Link, a 1.75-mile bike and pedestrian path, would connect the Alpha Loop and Big Creek Greenway to the North Point area and a future bus and rapid transit station near Ga. 400.

City officials are asking for comments on the detailed plan posted online. They’d also like resident email addresses to conduct future virtual meetings on the project.

The city, due to the coronavirus outbreak, considers the online presentation “Public Meeting #1” as an alternative to an in-person meeting.

The Alpha Loop includes multi-use paths connecting Avalon, Downtown and the Northwinds Summit neighborhoods. The first phase of the project was set to open in April but has been delayed.

A second public meeting, virtually or in person, is included in the planning process for the new trail. City officials said they want to hear from residents, businesses, property owners and citizens who would use the path before the trail concept is finalized.
