Pedestrian Matters

Sandy Springs has taken a step back from implementing an ordinance that required all property owners to add sidewalks along streets adjacent to their property during any renovation or new construction — a measure that, however impractical, could make construction-loving Atlanta infinitely more walkable. According to Patch, the City Council voted unanimously to suspend enforcement of the policy for up to 60 days in order to work out kinks. Some residents found the requirement unnecessary, forcing owners in cul-de-sacs and on small residential roads to build sidewalks to nowhere. [Image: Flickr]
