Brookhaven, GA, Feb. 7 – With Brookhaven’s temporary City Hall in Dunwoody closed for the day due to construction by a next door tenant, Mayor J Max Davis found a great way to stay busy as he pitched in on a sidewalk project along Ashford Dunwoody Rd.
The new 570 ft. sidewalk will stretch from Stratfield Drive to Humility Lane and connect to the existing sidewalk along the west side of the street.
In November, Brookhaven City Council approved an amended 2013 budget with $400,000 to build new sidewalks. Working with the public works director, each council member and the mayor selected locations in each district ensuring sidewalk improvements will be made throughout the entire city.
An additional $500,000 is allocated for sidewalk construction in this year’s 2014 budget, totaling close to $1 million in pedestrian improvements in Brookhaven’s first two years.
