Today the Atlanta Regional Roundtable met to finalize the timeline and protocol for creating the Project List for the transportation referendum to be held on August 21, 2012. The Roundtable will be developing the list of transportation projects to be funded with the one cent sales tax over the next 8 months.
A website for the process is now online.
In addition, here is a handout that lists the members of the Roundtable and the schedule of meetings (all meeting dates subject to change).
A few thoughts on how to get involved:
-Sign up on the Regional Roundtable website to receive emails.
- Contact members of your city and county governments to make sure the projects you think are important are submitted by March 31st, 2011.
- Attend Roundtable meetings and speak at the public comment period at the beginning of each meeting.
-Contact your representatives on the Roundtable and the Executive Committee members to inform them of the projects you think are important.
- Organize your community to attend the public hearings in August and September.
-Contact your city and county representatives to express how you think they should spend the 15% of funds that go directly to local jurisdictions.
