I would like a safe bike trail from Avondale Estates straight down East College to meet up with the trail in Decatur, and a pedestrian / bike bridge from AE to the library over Memorial.

I'd like to see a few left turn lights when you're heading east on E. College, like at N. McDonough, S. Candler, Columbia Dr./Commerce intersections.

A new tenant for the old James Joyce Pub! Please! I miss the Joyce.
