Residents have say on medicinal marijuana
With construction under way for PATH400, a walking trail running roughly along Ga. 400, members of Livable Buckhead and the Path Foundation gave a tour of Phase 1 progress, which stretches from Old Ivy Road to Lenox Road. While that ½-mile section is expected to be completed late this year, the plan is that the entire 5-mile long trail that will extend from Loridans Drive to the Atlanta BeltLine will serve as the “spine” of the Buckhead Collection, a connected system of trails, parks and neighborhoods. Phil Pellegrini, project manager for the PATH Foundation, which is overseeing the construction, talked about a possible future connection during the trail tour. “We’re working with the Chastain Park Conservancy and the Blue Heron Nature Preserve on actually making it connect from this point all the way to Chastain Park,” he said, which would involve connecting walkways through schools, across Roswell Road, behind Post Chastain apartments and to Lake Forrest Drive.
