Atlanta, Georgia: Meeting suggests ‘complete streets’ a top priority for Renew Atlanta, TSPLOST money

The Atlanta Transportation Plan endeavors to shift the city from its automobile obsession to focus on infrastructure improvements that encourage cycling, walking, and public transit use.

Part of that plan entails striving to decrease the amount of commuters who drive alone from more than 50 percent to around 35 percent or less, which means not only would people need to carpool more, they would need to leave their cars behind.

Using the community input, city officials mapped out three potential plans for prioritizing the projects that were first promised when Atlanta voters elected to approve the TSPLOST and Renew Atlanta programs years ago.
