The Brookhaven City Council recently approved to pay $25,000 to be used toward a last mile connectivity study in the Perimeter Community Improvement Districts.

The council approved the funding April 26 and was the final municipality to do so. Sandy Springs and Dunwoody as well as the PCID also agreed to pitch in $25,000 for the study that will look at options to cover the “last mile” between MARTA and riders’ final destinations, such as offices, homes or stores.

Councilmember Joe Gebbia has expressed interest, along with Sandy Springs Mayor Rusty Paul, in the possibility of monorails being utilized as part of a last mile connectivity plan.

The PCID study is to include those options as well as traditional models, such as bike paths and walking trails.
