A public meeting will be held on February 18 at the City of Chamblee Civic Center, located at 3540 Broad Street. The meeting time is from 6 to 8 PM. Rail Trail information and corridor displays will be on display and there will be a short presentation.

A 2012 Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) Study identified the extension of the Keswick Trail along an abandoned rail corridor as a possible multi-use trail and alternate means of transportation for City of Chamblee residents. The long abandoned railroad once linked the City of Chamblee with the City of Roswell.

In June 2015 the City of Chamblee hired Heath & Lineback Engineers Inc. to prepare a Conceptual Design Study for the 0.86 mile long section of the corridor that extends from McGraw Drive at Peachtree Road to Chamblee Dunwoody Road. At one location the corridor is adjacent to a parcel owned by MARTA that has been identified as a potential greenspace and park.

The design team has met with the Mayor and City Council people to gather information concerning the City’s vision for the Rail Trail Corridor and we have met twice with a Stakeholder Advisory Group to gather ideas for the Rail Trail Corridor and greenspace area.

A public meeting will be held on February 18 at the City of Chamblee Civic Center, located at 3540 Broad Street. The meeting time is from 6 to 8 PM. Rail Trail information and corridor displays will be on display and there will be a short presentation. Please attend the meeting and share your vision for the Rail Trail Corridor.
