Greater Decatur, GA — DeKalb County Commissioners Ted Terry and Jeff Rader are hosting a workshop about the South Peachtree Creek Trail study on Thursday, March 10, from 6-7 p.m. at AMC North DeKalb 16, 2042 Lawrenceville Highway, according to a Facebook post from Terry.

DeKalb County Transportation and members from the PATH Foundation will be available to answer questions about the extension of the South Peachtree Creek Trail. The workshop will be open to anyone who would like to provide input on potential destinations, preferred types of trails and desired trail connections for both the north and south study areas.

The workshop areas will be organized to promote social distancing, and masks are strongly encouraged.

The PATH trail would also cross through North DeKalb Mall as part of a proposed redevelopment of that property.  The trail would connect the redeveloped mall to nearby neighborhoods.

The developer wants to create a mixed-use development with retail, a hotel, apartments and town homes. Plans call for 300,000 square feet of retail space, 200,000 square feet of office space, a 150-room hotel, 1,700 apartment units and 100 town homes. The project’s estimated completion date is 2028.
