Renew Atlanta T-SPLOST Recap

27 Feb 2019 11:03 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

We cannot express how important it is for community members to get engaged in the Prioritization & Rebaselining. Below is a recap of this process, how you can get involved, presentation materials used at each meeting and also contact information.  

1.

BACKGROUND:

The city is making decisions regarding which streets it will spend the $540 million raised through T-Splost and the Renew Atlanta Grant. 

The city council has received its report. RDA complete streets has already been fully funded through the Flats at Westview, Cascade Road Phase 2 (B.E. Mays to RDA) is listed as design only, Langhorn Street is not funded, Beecher complete repaving has been funded, the Westview Cemetery/West Lake Trail is listed as design only and the Lionel Hampton connection to the Beltline will be left unfunded. There will be plenty to advocate around and encourage you to attend each of the Round 2 meetings.

T-SPLOST BACKGROUND:

The Renew Atlanta/TSPLOST programs, launched in 2015 and 2016, were created to help address more than $1 billion in infrastructure backlog facing the City. Though the programs have made much progress to date delivering key projects across Atlanta, we face significant challenges as we move forward to complete the full initial program scope. Moreover, the cost to deliver the full scope of the initial program considerably exceeds the funding available from the Renew Atlanta Bond and anticipated TSPLOST revenues.

Thus, we are working diligently to prioritize and re-baseline the initial program lists to deliver the greatest impact to Atlanta’s above-ground infrastructure and transportation network with the available funds. Through this re-baselining effort, we are dedicated to engaging all stakeholders to help inform the process in a transparent and meaningful way.
