City's wishlist of local projects to be funded by T-SPLOST cash to be unveiled Tuesday

Posted By on Mon, Jun 4, 2012 at 1:47 PM

The transportation tax voters will decide on July 31 won't just pay for new roads out in the 'burbs or transit along parts of the Atlanta Beltline.

Fifteen percent of the transportation tax, if approved, will go to municipalities and counties to spend on local road, transit, pedestrian, and cycling projects of their choice. Atlanta is expected to receive roughly $94 million spread out over 10 years.

Head down to City Hall tomorrow night at 6 p.m. to join Tom Weyandt, Mayor Kasim Reed's transportation adviser, and hear how local officials might spend Atlanta's cut of the 1-percent sales tax measure. The fun lasts until 8 p.m. Attendees will be able to comment on the plan at the meeting or via email afterward. (We're trying to snag a sneak peek at the list ahead of time. If you have a copy of the projects you'd like to share, please pass them along.)

Can't make it? City officials will also post the list on the city's website on Tuesday evening.
