Published: 12/21/18

In 2015 and 2016, voters in the City of Atlanta approved new sources of funding (TSPLOST/Renew Atlanta bond) to help address the City’s $1B+ infrastructure backlog. While some projects have been delivered through this funding, much work remains.  

For a number of reasons, the City has determined that the revenue being raised will fall significantly short of what is needed to fully implement the original program scope. With that, the City is reaching back out to citizens to help them prioritize the remaining projects. Please weigh in by taking a few minutes to complete the City’s survey. The survey closes December 31, 2018.
