I was giving an LLCC update at a recent Woodland Hills Neighborhood Association meeting when
a resident mentioned that the crosswalk signals at the Lindbergh/LaVista/Cheshire Bridge intersection were still missing/not working. I said I had contacted the City of Atlanta several times since September, got the usual run-around and was told, “we don’t have enough funding to fix the problem”. After the meeting, I tried one more time, but this time I went to the media: John Becker, who writes the Take to Task feature for the AJC. John published the complaint on March 5 and a follow-up article March 12. Click here to read it and find out the result!
