Nashville-based RPM Transportation Consultants held the first of several public meetings Wednesday to begin soliciting input to be included in Union City’s South Fulton Parkway Corridor Study.
Funded by the city and developers, the study proposes to establish a comprehensive transportation and development plan that spans the 6.5-mile stretch of the parkway recently annexed by Union City. Geared toward the future, the plan is expected to provide a template for municipal decisions affecting the corridor area through 2027.
Many of those attending the meeting at Liberty Point Elementary School reside in unincorporated south Fulton County. South Fulton residents have long-maintained that the highway’s signature features, large buffer areas and the absence of curb cuts, should never be compromised.
