Woodstock officials held an open house Saturday to debut a draft master plan for a portion of the Ga. 92 corridor within the city and to seek additional public input.
The document, developed under a $75,000 Livable Cities Initiative grant from the Atlanta Regional Commission, has several components, including better street connectivity between shopping centers to help get traffic off of the busy stretch of roadway between Parkway 575 and Stonecroft Lane, east of Main Street, said City Planner Patti Hart.
Other elements focus on creating a better buffer between Ga. 92 and pedestrian areas, improved sidewalks and landscaping, more trees, and possible extension of a multi-use trail from downtown that now ends at Ga. 92 just east of Interstate 575.
“The core goal is to make this more of a gateway to our downtown,” said Hart.
Planners will take the draft, plus public input received Saturday and work up a final document for presentation to the city council early next year.
