Marietta mayor wants vision statement to include walkability, art

Marietta Mayor Steve Tumlin said Wednesday, Aug. 26, he would like the City Council to add walkability and art to the city’s vision statement.

The council may vote on these additions to the eight-point list at 7 p.m. Sept. 9 at City Hall, 205 Lawrence St.

Walkability would include “bicycle use, sidewalks, electric vehicles and carts and safe crossings” in public and private street designs, including redesigning and new public and private commercial and residential projects, Tumlin suggested.

Public art would include its incorporation into “infrastructure, streetscapes, parks, sidewalks, bridges, parking areas and open areas where possible and to whatever acceptable extent on a case-by-case basis,” he added.
