East Point PATH
East Point, Georgia
Competition is fierce among Atlanta’s edge cities to lure employers and retain the younger generation of educated employees. The fact that East Point has not been the hottest spot for new development since the great depression helps create the opportunity to install transformational infrastructure near the center of the city before anticipated development takes place.
This master plan for East Point PATH proposes to energize the east side of the tracks across from downtown by creating a linear park and trail that will spur development and improve north-south pedestrian and bicycle connectivity through the city. Utilizing the existing connection over the railroad, the new trail and anticipated development will certainly boost activity in the commercial area on the west side of the tracks. This trail segment will become the centerpiece for transforming East Point into a preferred location for new employers and the educated millineals they wish to employ.
