PATH has built more than 170 miles of multi-use trails in the Atlanta region, and it shows no signs of stopping. It currently is in a capital campaign to connect several of its paths through the center of Atlanta and expand existing trails throughout the metro area.

The ULI Atlanta’s Dan & Tally Sweat Community Leadership Award recognizes those who have made a significant contribution to responsible land use through development or by promoting and implementing public policy that favorably impacts land use.
