Give me easy access

and I’ll report on every neighborhood problem I can think of!

This site: http://peds.org/  is awesome for reporting any and every pedestrian hazard!  I’ve already reported on burned out street lights, cross walks, sidewalks and now utility lines that are down!  Take advantage of technology- the forms are simple and short. REPORT! so we can get them fixed and have a better/safer community!

PEDS: Fix Atlanta Sidewalks

I must  admit, walking more and now bike riding, has allowed me to notice and empathize with those who are without  a car and those who preference public transportation. Our side walks are JACKED UP!!  Now, I come from a walking city (Brooklyn-NY) but I have never experienced the exhaustion I feel  here, when I walked from West 4th St. to Central Park!  Atlanta’sblocks not only seem VERY LONG- they are sooo hilly!!! Compound this will broken pavers, tree roots and grass- it’s enough to make anyone want to stay home…-and you know I can not stay home in this market! 🙂

With that said, I urge all City of Atlanta Residents to follow the below link  and view the petition, sign if you are in agreement. Thank You!!

Earth Day BeltLine Bike Tour

I was a bit disappointed to miss this event, although I’m sure I would not have been able to keep up. LOL..  I just want to ‘Thank’ the Atlanta Bike Coalition (http://www.atlantabike.org/)  for selecting the West End for this event. It was inspiring to see you guys out today..even the little ones on their bikes!  I was SO inspired, I actually rode for a 1/2 mile today!!!  This is a  huge accomplishment for me 🙂  Thank you Rebecca. I look forward to joining the group and helping West End become more ‘biker’ friendly.  Also thanks for the tip on PEDS- I have reported the hazards discussed! *fingers crossed* we will get pedestrian cross walks at RDA and Hopkins Street
