#City & Town Planning
DeKalb County, GA
United States of America

Our neighborhood is divided by the state highways Clairmont Road and Lavista Road. In an effort to enable a safe route to Sagamore Elementary additional pedestrian facilities are required. A distance of 1.3 miles separates the two existing crosswalks on Clairmont Road at Briarcliff and Lavista, an unacceptably long and dangerous walk around distance.

Council Bluff Dr has an existing pedestrian path that leads directly to Sagamore Elementary, and is located approximately half-way between Briarcliff & Lavista making it the ideal spot.

Lavista Road is equally challenging to safely navigate as a pedestrian. Lavista lacks sidewalks in many sections and better infrastructure to enable a safe crossing is necessary.

It is unacceptable that to in order to cross the road, a person must literally risk their life.

We, the undersigned, call on the Georgia Department of Transportation to let us safely cross the state highways in our neighborhood by August 1, 2015.

• New Crosswalk Installation at Clairmont Rd & Council Bluff Rd
• New Crosswalk Installation at Lavista Rd and Pinellas.
