Residents and stakeholders of the Proctor Creek communities are invited to take part in a community forum about the first phase of the Proctor Creek Greenway project.

The forum will take place from 5:30 to 7 p.m. March 22 at Atlanta Community Food Bank, 732 Joseph E. Lowery Blvd., N.W.

The city of Atlanta is earmarking $3 million in TSPLOST revenue this year to build the first part of the Proctor Creek Greenway. Covering seven miles, the Proctor Creek Greenway will result in 50 acres of linear park and 400 acres of greenspace on Atlanta’s Westside and connectivity to the Bankhead MARTA Station and the BeltLine Westside Trail, city officials said. It will stretch from Maddox Park on the westside to the Chattahoochee River.

The PATH Foundation is completing the master plan for the trail. The trail’s first segment, which will run from Bankhead MARTA Station to the West Highlands Trail, is scheduled to be completed in the next year.
