April is PEDS “Feet on Atlanta” Month

The City of Atlanta requires individual property owners to maintain and pay for any necessary repairs to sidewalks traversing their property.  The City estimates that approximately 25% of its sidewalks need repair or complete replacement. 

PEDS thinks the City underestimates the number of deficient sidewalks and launched Feet on Atlanta to find out the real number.  PEDS asks volunteers to inventory the City’s sidewalks and give a “thumbs up” or a “thumbs down”.   

Volunteers may win a $75 gift certificate at Phiddipides or a MARTA Breeze card loaded with 20 trips.

You can download the Sidewalk Survey Form here.  Surveys must be returned to PEDS by April 30.

  1. I heard, by way of the Grant Park Neighborhood Association, that the city was doing a massive assessment of city sidewalks. It was indicated that the city would be sending out letters to homeowners instructing them to conduct repairs or face fines.
