The Avondale Estates City Commission will hold a public hearing at 7:30 p.m. Monday, May 21, in city hall on a proposed golf cart ordinance for the city.
The commission has talked about allowing golf carts on city streets several times, with the subject coming up again during a March meeting.
Commission say they support the change, partly because it would reduce auto emmissions.
Residents could drive golf carts on city streets but couldn’t drive on state roads except to cross Avondale Road at certain points, such as the Clarendon Road intersection.
The ordinance is based on a model ordinance provided by the Georgia Municipal Association.
Decatur decided against allowing golf carts on city streets last summer.
The commission won’t vote on the ordinance Monday night. After the public hearing on the golf cart ordinance, the city commission will hold its regular meeting.
