No meeting Tonight
Set for March 1st

Dunwoody Baptist Church
1445 Mount Vernon Road, Dinning Room

Building on the City’s new Comprehensive Plan, citizens, staff and officials are now preparing the City’s first Transportation Plan. This Comprehensive Transportation Plan will:

• Identify transportation needs and appropriate strategies
• Identify specific actions to implement the goals of the City’s Comprehensive Land Use Plan
• Define necessary transportation priorities, policies, projects and/or programs

Looking at the presentation, maps and other information from second Comprehensive Transportation Plan Public Meeting-1/25/2011, how would prioritize future spending on Roadway Improvements?  Thoughts?

My biggest concern is the traffic circles down Mt. Vernon. Will the big trucks that have to get into Orchard Park be able to drive around these traffic circles? If not, how will they get to Orchard Park?

If the city decides to use traffic circles, I would like to see one or two built and give them a try before putting them in all over the city. I have heard that some cities are taking them out after realizing they didn't help.

Rick is correct. City sent out a correction on the meeting date as they listed the wrong date on their site.

The meeting is March 1st.

Hmm, lots of people up at the church right now, 6pm, wondering what is going on....

I'm not a traffic engineer and can't explain the differences, but roundabouts are different from traffic circles that may still exist in other parts of the states (New England, outside of Boston??).

Roswell is building their very first roundabout this year. They conducted lots of public information meetings and created a nice page on their website about roundabouts:

.. and of course feel free to review my presentation on roundabouts on this blog:

I grew up in a town with roundabouts (1980's). They were pretty. Maybe we could put a bronze statue of the Mayor or City Planner in the middle. Maybe they could be holding a street light in one hand - because that is what became of them 20 years later.
The left hand turns are deadly.
