City Launches Name-the-Trail Contest
Oct. 27, 2017 – The ribbon has been cut and the plans are underway for the 11.5 mile multi-use trail system that will crisscross the city linking office parks, restaurants, retail centers, the new town center and surrounding neighborhoods. Winding its way through Technology Park, the first section of the multi-use trail will link to the city’s town center to the north and south to Peachtree Parkway.
The trail system will have a dual purpose: Exercise for those who just want to get out for an early morning or evening stroll; and also as a transportation alternative for residents who chose to walk or cycle to nearby restaurants, shops and entertainment venues.
Now it’s time to name the trail system and give it a unique identity for our innovative and remarkable city. We are turning to our residents and business community to help name the trail. If you have a great idea for the trail name, see the rules below for entering it into the contest. The winning entry will receive a restaurant gift certificate and bragging rights in perpetuity.
