About the Project

The City of Decatur is embarking on a capacity-building process to improve the safety and beautification along Jasper Street from Pershing Road to East Lake Shore Drive. How can this corridor be brought into its full potential? What improvements can be made to increase safety for all users, connect neighborhoods, and build upon existing strengths?

Throughout this project process, the City of Decatur will engage with residents, neighborhoods groups, local businesses, and other stakeholders to ensure that Jasper Street becomes a corridor that reflects the needs and desires of those who use it. Local knowledge and input are pivotal to the future success of Jasper Street.

Over the upcoming months the City will host pop up events, community meetings, and more to work with the community to make Jasper Street a vibrant and welcoming corridor. Make sure to subscribe below for email updates on upcoming events, opportunities to get involved, and more (we promise we won’t spam your inbox)!
