Sidewalk Talk

A Saporta Report columnist takes umbrage this week with Atlanta's famously mangled sidewalks, drawing a correlation between impassable (or nonexistent) sidewalks and pedestrian fatalities. Those who'll dish out the $250 million infrastructure bond money should take note, she argues, because "a robust pedestrian network attracts even more feet on the street and improves neighborhood access. For Atlanta, the infrastructure bond is one tool of many we must use to expand and improve our sidewalk network." [SR]
