Wanted: Ideas for how Atlanta should potentially spend $250 million to upgrade roads, bridges, and sidewalks

The Earth, frustrated with centuries of abuse, begins to swallow mankind

  • The Earth, frustrated with centuries of abuse, begins to swallow mankind.
In March 2015, Atlantans will get to cast ballots on whether the city should take on up to $250 million in bonds to make a dent in its nearly $1 billion infrastructure backlog.

City Hall has started gearing up for that referendum by looking at potential projects and identifying savings in the city's budget. Now residents will have a chance to chime in on what roads, bridges, and sidewalks they'd like to see improved.

Atlanta officials have scheduled a series of public meetings where residents can make suggestions about what projects should be included in the bond package. We've posted a full list of the meetings, which are each scheduled to run between 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., after the jump:

1630 Metropolitan Parkway, SW
Atlanta, GA 30310
