New Sidewalks & Bike Path on Buckner Rd
We the undersigned, residents of properties in close proximity to Buckner Rd., do hereby petition the Cobb County Commission and Cobb County Department of Transportation to install new sidewalks and a bike path on all sections of Buckner Rd.
The installation of sidewalks would significantly increase the safety and quality of life for all communities on Buckner Rd. Residents could safely walk to retailers such as Publix and Walgreens located on Veterans Memorial Hwy. Students and parents could easily walk to school and events at Whitfield Academy and Lindley 6th Grade Academy. Sidewalks and a bike path along Buckner would promote community health via exercise and connect residents with existing county parks and recreation facilities on Oakdale Rd.
New sidewalks and a bike path on Buckner Rd. are critical elements of the RiverLine Master Plan, procured by the Board of Commissioners. The RiverLine plan was completed in 2009 and very few if any pedestrian road improvements outlined in the plan have been implemented.
We sincerely request the Board of Commissioners allocate funds from the proposed 2016 SPLOST or other county funds for these vital improvements on Buckner Rd. Thanks for your leadership and service to the county. We look forward to working with you to improve our community.
