No, the complete streets conversion for Spring, W Peachtree, and 5th. Neighborhood Greenways for Mrytle, 8th, and Peachtree Pl. Street Enhancement to 17th St bridge.

No, the complete streets and greenway improvements. Click on the streets, not just the pin.

Re: “Atlanta's proposed TSPLOST projects, now in map form

@ormehood
Are you talking about the Piedmont Heights/Sherwood items? Thanks, but I excluded those since listed under a different area and not really part of Midtown's 'core'.

If all these proposals passes sales tax will be 8.9%, which edges even NYCs total sales/use taxes! Property taxes for the area are also very high.
Seems to me the majority of the 500million+ that went to towards the new stadium could have covered all of this, (certainly anything Beltline related). Additionally expect to hear word of the Philips arena largess from the city soon.

Sorry but until we have a new Atlanta city govt in place I can't support or vote for any new funding.

Re: “Atlanta's proposed TSPLOST projects, now in map form

Does Piedmont really need to be 7 lanes in Buckhead? Isn't it already pedestrian-unfriendly enough?

Re: “Republican National Convention Day 2: Pink balls to the wall

The Republicans exhibit a special type of crazy in their pics for sure, but I presume we will see the same type of candid shots of the Democrat's convention as well correct?

@Supertrill
At this point they are just tossing whatever taxes out there and hope us dullards will approve them without question. Never mind the big increases in property taxes the city is getting that seems to be going into the pockets of billionaires and pet projects.

(Note: Midtown would get funded the whopping expenditure of 15 updated pedestrian traffic crossings/signals if this passes)

Re: “Atlanta's proposed TSPLOST projects, now in map form

I thought Complete Streets improvements to this portion of DeKalb Ave were being funded by Renew Atlanta bond?

Another correct decision by Paul Howard.

He's 2 for 2 this week.

Re: “DA won't seek charges against APD officers in Alexia Christian case

"...(attorney Mauli) Davis said a “folly of errors placed Ms. Christian in a very dangerous situation which, ultimately, she paid for with her life.”

Nice take on the situation, Mr. Davis.

Sitting in the back seat of a cop car firing a gun at the two cops in the front seat is, indeed, a "very dangerous situation." Poor dear.

If I had a child in the Fulton County Schools I would be damned before I would have that child in APS. If I had a child in the DeKalb County Schools I would suppose APS couldn't be any worse.
