Georgia is traversed by a multitude of trails that define communities, connect neighbors and get people outdoors. Yet there is need for so much more. There are many opportunities to connect existing trail systems, increasing access to a multitude of parks, communities and experiences.
The 2020 Georgia Trail Summit will bring together non-profit leaders, city planners, elected officials, greenspace advocates, recreation enthusiasts and others to envision an accelerated and ambitious approach to improving Georgia’s trails. Alta is proud to be a sponsor and to host a table at the event. We hope to see you there Sunday, May 3 – Monday, May 4!
Peachtree City: Sharing Trails with Low-Speed Electric Vehicles
Monday, May 4 – Classroom Session
There is a lively debate going on around the country about whether electric bikes, scooters, skateboards, and other emerging electric ‘rideables’ should be allowed on greenways. Peachtree City, Georgia has welcomed larger e-vehicles such as golf carts or neighborhood electric vehicles on trails for decades. This session will explore pros and cons along with design considerations associated with trails where people walk, bicycle, and operate low-speed electric vehicles. Learn about emerging national trends in electronic micromobility and how it is changing the profession’s approach to design, regulation, maintenance, and marketing of trails.
