South River Trail Is Tracking Way Through District 6

This past year, Commissioner Gannon has worked diligently on the extension of the South River Trail to the Beltline! She has been working with various property owners and acquiring the necessary financing. The South River Trail will traverse South DeKalb County from Fulton County to Rockdale County. DeKalb County has been in a 25 year partnership with the PATH Foundation for the planning and construction of multi-use trails. Everyone in metro Atlanta is beginning to understand the power of how these trails can increase property values, add a valuable amenity, and improve access to healthy lifestyles.

As the weather changes, it becomes a great time to enjoy the outdoors.  Look out for coordinated walks on parts of the South River Trail with Commissioner Kathie Gannon this spring!  It will be a great opportunity to exercise, lower your stress and enjoy nature.
