Brookhaven presents draft of Ashford Dunwoody Corridor Study
Brookhaven, GA, Mar. 23, 2017 – The City of Brookhaven is conducting a public presentation of the draft of the Ashford Dunwoody Corridor Study on Tuesday, March 28 at 7 p.m., at Brookhaven City Hall, 4362 Peachtree Road in Brookhaven. This will be the third presentation at City Hall, following the two presentations previously conducted at the March 14 City Council meeting.
The Ashford Dunwoody Corridor Study is one of several visioning processes that are underway in the City of Brookhaven. This study’s goal is to develop a general consensus for long-range options to improve traffic operations, safety, and multimodal connectivity for the Ashford Dunwoody Corridor.
“This is the first phase of what will be integrated into the 20-year comprehensive plan for Brookhaven, providing the framework for responsible smart growth and traffic efficiency in this area,” said Brookhaven City Manager Christian Sigman. “The public input over the past several months has been vital toward developing that consensus and ensuring that we have the best models possible.”
The stated purpose of this phase of the study is to develop an overall vision for the corridor which:
- Serves the needs of all users; and minimizes adverse impacts to property owners and neighborhoods in the corridor;
- Is harmonious with existing development and future growth along the corridor;
- Is cost-effective, implementable; and has broad community support from citizens, stakeholders, and other partners.
The Brookhaven City Council is hosting the presentations to receive a status update and to inform the public. There is no vote required of City Council at this time. Specific design recommendations based upon guidelines outlined in the study could not be recommended or approved without additional public input and funding.
