Chamblee to hold multi-modal transportation meeting

The city of Chamblee is seeking input on ways to improve transportation in the city. According to a press release the city is hosting a a kick-off meeting on the multi-modal transportation plan for Chamblee where residents will be asked to share thoughts and concerns.

The event is 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26 at the North DeKalb Senior Center, 3393 Malone Drive.

The city has many competing transportation infrastructure priorities; however, there is not a comprehensive tool to define and prioritize the current and future needs. City staff has determined the importance of developing a single plan to define and prioritize projects to maximize infrastructure investments for the community. This guiding plan will contribute to some larger objectives, such as higher levels of mobility, safety and mode choice, reducing congestion, improving quality of life, attracting businesses and having an efficient freight system.

Other topics include the conceptual plans for the third phase of the Rail Trail and the future autonomous shuttle planned for downtown Chamblee, funded through the Smart Communities Challenge.
