BCN Survery - Do you want a traffic plan for Buckhead?
Posted on Jul 31st, 2019
As a part of the Buckhead Council of Neighborhoods “Let Buckhead Breathe” Transportation Initiative, the Traffic Task Force is investigating working with an outside consulting firm to develop an overall traffic plan for Buckhead. This plan would address:
Improving Safety for Pedestrians and Vehicles
Better Managing the Volumes of Cars flowing into and out Buckhead
Balancing the Interests of the Neighborhoods and their Commercial Neighbors
Giving Neighborhoods Tools to Manage their Traffic
As the first step in this process, we would like to learn more about traffic problems in your Neighborhood and the efforts you have already undertaken to manage traffic. We would very much appreciate your responding to the brief survey at the link below:
(a few answers to help PBA neighbors: your neighborhood is Peachtree Battle Alliance, your PBA traffic chair is Kirk Rankin, Your NPU is NPU-C, YES- PBA is a member of the BCN)
Please reply as soon as possible.  We will be sharing results at the September BCN meeting.

Thanks for your support,
BCN Traffic Task Force
