Oakhurst residents were delighted to hear that the city of Decatur will soon begin working on the Oakhurst streetscape project after seven years of planning.

A regular Decaturish reader asked us this question: “Will the Oakhurst Streetscape improvements involve improvements to Harmony Park?”

Decaturish asked the city and Deputy City Manager Hugh Saxon answered via email:

“The project will actually increase the overall size of Harmony Park. The off-street parking area on the south side of the park will be removed and replaced with a pedestrian plaza as part of a larger park. Parking will now be provided by angle parking on East Lake Drive in front of the Oakhurst Market and the One Step at a Time shoe store.”

So there you have it, loyal reader. You’re welcome.
