    I am a HUGE proponent of this project (and the Beltway project).

    Please add me to whatever list you need to so that I can be notified of meetings and ways to lend support.

    same here, what William K. said.

    i haven’t read the full article yet but i’m guessing that the golf course there is what’s in the way.

    would like to know about any updated news on this.
    thanks

    I love the Big Creek Greenway. I started going a couple of months ago to walk and run. I do have the following observations and questions.

    I generally start at the entrance off North Point Parkway where the YMCA is. I noticed that the bathrooms are locked with the exception of the weekends. Is this permanent? Not sure I follow the logic. Perhaps budget cuts?

    Why are theree no drinking fountains? Not a problem usually, but sometimes I exhaust my supply if it is hot.

    Bicycles are exceeding the 15 MPH. This wouldn’t be a real problem, but most of the riders do not shout “On Your Left” when approaching. I stay as far to the right as possible because of this.

    Does anyone have any updates on this? I’ve heard rumors that the project has been put on hold – for 5+ years or more. Is this true? If so, maybe we can get Alpharetta/Fulton County to build a wide sidewalk on McGuiness Ferry Road to McFarland Pkwy so we can ride safely between Greenways. That 1 mile section of road has no shoulder and cars regulary travel 50 mph+….it would be VERY unsafe to travel on bicycle.
