The multi-use paths throughout Peachtree City serve as a signature amenity for the community. Many of the paths are difficult to traverse due to root intrusion and repaving needs. Currently, approximately 13% of the paths are rated at or below 80 (based on the PACERS Rating System scale – maximum of 100 for best condition) and need repair/resurfacing. Addressing this issue is limited by staffing, equipment, and funding constraints. This project identifies staffing and equipment needs to increase repair and maintenance of the path system. Under this project, an additional three (3) miles of the path will be resurfaced each year over and above the normal path maintenance cycle funded by the General Fund, with the goal of all paths being resurfaced on an eight (8) year cycle.
December 2023 Progress Update: This project is ongoing every year. Public Works recently re-rated every path in the City and has prioritized them for resurfacing. This additional funding allows the City to resurface an additional three miles per year beyond what is normally budgeted. Public Works has an annual goal of resurfacing 10 miles of path, including the additional three miles from SPLOST funding.
