South DeKalb residents can participate in the third and final round of public open houses for the DeKalb County Transit Master Plan.

The meetings on June 5 at Stonecrest Library, and on June 6 at the Exchange Recreation Center mark an important milestone for the year-long study. Representatives from DeKalb County Government, the Atlanta Regional Commission, and MARTA are working to develop the DeKalb County Transit Master Plan.  

Project update presentations will be given at each of the three open houses and there will be opportunities for community feedback on how the Master Plan will impact the future of transit in the county.

Recommendations generated during the initial phase of the project, including the two rounds of public open houses, public survey, and stakeholder advisory committee meetings, will also be presented.

The DeKalb Transit Master Plan will address the county’s mobility challenges, help to enhance future development opportunities, and improve the quality of life within each of DeKalb’s cities and unincorporated communities, both north and south.

Organizers say the plan will also seize opportunities in DeKalb County for service enhancements now and expansion opportunities later to create a 30-year vision and beyond for transit investments.

The Stonecrest Library is at 3123 Klondike Rd.  The meeting starts at 6 p.m.

Exchange Recreation Center is at 2771 Columbia Dr. in Decatur. The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m.

A meeting also takes place on June 4 at Toco Hills Library, 1282 McConnell Dr. Decatur. It starts at 6 p.m.
