Renew Atlanta Prioritization & Rebaselining Meeting (1 of 2)
Thursday, January 24th, 6:30 pm at Sutton Middle School, 2875 Northside Drive
In 2015, Atlanta voters overwhelmingly approved $250 million in Renew Atlanta bonds to make repairs, improvements, and upgrades to transportation and building projects citywide.
 
A lot of work has been done in District 8. Streets have been paved, sidewalks have been built and work is under way to replace the 70-year-old Powers Ferry Road bridge next to Chastain Park. A two-mile extension of the PATH around Bobby Jones Golf Course was recently dedicated and improvements are happening at fire stations 26 and 27.
When the Renew effort and its companion TSPLOST programs launched, more than $1 billion in infrastructure repairs were identified. The $250-million Renew package and the taxes generated by the TSPLOST funds will NOT total $1 billion. Thus, choices must be made on what to do with the funding currently available, particularly as it relates to anticipated TSPLOST dollars.
 
In order to receive feedback on the current list of projects under three proposed scenarios, Renew Atlanta will hold two public meetings for NW Atlanta residents. I encourage you to attend these meetings on Thursday, January 24, 6:30-8 p.m. at Sutton Middle School, 2875 Northside Drive and Thursday, February 28, at the same time and place. I hope to see you at one or both of these meetings.
