After more than 20 years of developing multi-use trails, Ed McBrayer is being honored by the Atlanta chapter of the Urban Land Institute.
McBrayer, co-founder and executive director of the PATH Foundation, will be honored with the Dan & Tally Sweat Community Leadership Award at ULI Atlanta’s 18th annual Awards for Excellence Dinner, which will be held on the evening of Thursday, Sept. 20 at the Atlanta History Center.
After nearly 21 years in existence, the PATH Foundation now has 3,500 members, and it has raised more than $420 million from public and private sources.
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.
