A Sidewalk Task Force co-chaired by Atlanta City Council members Natalyn Archibong and Carla Smith held its last meeting in May. Participants recommended changes needed to enable the City to repair more broken sidewalks. The city reportedly has a $152 million backlog in sidewalk maintenance to complete.
Those attending the July 30 meeting will learn more about Atlanta’s current sidewalk maintenance program and changes recommended by Public Works Commissioner Richard Mendoza and PEDS CEO Sally Flocks. Recommendations differ, so each will give brief presentations. Following that, Councilmembers Archibong and Aaron Watson will join Mendoza and Flocks for a question and answer session with the audience.
