Fulton County Public Works Seeks Public Comment Regarding Transportation Projects

Atlanta, GA--  (submitted by Fulton Communication)  Fulton County wants your input to develop recommendations about the county’s future transportation needs through the year 2040.  The Transportation Investment Act requires each of the state’s 12 regions to conduct regional roundtable consisting of the Commission Chair from each county along with one mayor from each of the counties.

Your participation is extremely important in the planning process and to the development of the project list.

The roundtable’s primary task is to create a list of projects to be funded if the referendum passes. Each of the 12 regions can levy a 1% sales tax for 10 years, with the money raised in each region staying at home. The proposed tax will be on the 2012 primary election ballot.

Currently, Fulton County is developing a list of transportation priorities. Projects planned by Fulton County Public Works would be projects with regional impact that are located within unincorporated South Fulton.

Let us know how you feel about the transportation needs in your area the Transportation Investment Act Citizen Survey is available online at www.fultoncountyga.gov click on the survey to offer your input. If you are a citizen that does not have access to a computer and can not attend the meeting you can call the Fulton County Office of Customer Service at 404-612-4000 to participate in the survey.

Additionally, you can attend a public information meeting on Wednesday, March 9, 2009 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Southwest Arts Center located at 915 New Hope Road Atlanta, GA 30331.
