Sam's Crossing at E Ponce is a great location for a multilane roundabout, preventing backups onto College Ave at Sam's crossing.

Multi-lane roundabouts are awful for heavily trafficked intersections. It can be very difficult to enter and creates a lot of risk for side-swipes with people (or you) trying to get over. With the round shape, there are frequently cars in your blind spot.

They work well all over New England, and some of them around Boston are very busy intersections/junctions.

I can appreciate the concerns of long term business owners who get pushed out by gentrification.

Shouldn't true mixed use include some industrial uses? Does it have to be limited to residential, office and retail?

Incorporation of light industrial would serve an area better.

Particularly these types:

Quote:

Target Light Industries for Fulton County
 Food Production Cluster
 Butchers (Limited meat processing permitted on-site)
 Confectionery manufacturing from purchased chocolate
 Cookie, cracker, & pasta manufacturing
 Breweries
 Confectionery wholesalers
 Wine & liquor wholesalers


Arts & Crafts Manufacturing Cluster
 Commercial screen printing (Consumer goods/retail focus – not print shops)
 Pottery product manufacturing
 Ornamental & architectural metalwork manufacturing

(Smaller products; hazard mitigation standards; soundproofing)
 Research & Development in the Hard Sciences ( (No hazardous materials)

This describes much of Decatur along the East College and East Ponce Corridors. Hopefully the city (and county) will honor the presence of them. They serve an important function for the community IMO.
