2015 Proposed Infrastructure Bond
Mayor Kasim Reed has made a commitment to address the city's pressing infrastructure challenges. Today, the city faces an infrastructure backlog of more than $900 million. In order to begin improving our city's roads, bridges, sidewalks and expand our green spaces, the city is proposing a bond infrastructure referendum to pay for these repairs and improvements. The Departments of Public Works, Planning and Community Development, in coordination with the Atlanta City Council, are seeking public input to determine priority and criteria for project selection for the bond.
A series of information/community engagement sessions will be held throughout the city to solicit public input on what types of projects should be funded with the bond proceeds. An overview of the state of the City’s infrastructure and the referendum process will be included as part of the discussion. There will be three (3) rounds of public information meetings held between June 2014 and February 2015. Residents are invited to attend one or more of these sessions.
