Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area (CRNRA) is conducting a second public meeting on June 17, 2009, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the North Fulton Government Service Center (Annex) as a follow up to the April 30, 2009 meeting regarding a potential bike / pedestrian bridge below Morgan Falls Dam. The proposed bridge would connect the planned Overlook and riverside parks in Sandy Springs with CRNRA property, including Hyde farm, in Cobb County. Preliminary alternative designs will be considered in the assessment process.
