Project at Mt. Vernon Highway and Long Island Drive to provide traffic efficiency improvements
WHAT: Officials from the City of Sandy Springs and Fulton County will celebrate the first T-SPLOST project to begin construction by unveiling a “T-SPLOST at Work” sign at the site of the Mt Vernon Highway and Long Island Drive traffic efficiency project. Construction is scheduled to begin mid-August.
WHEN: Monday, August 14, 2017
WHERE: The intersection of Mount Vernon Highway and Long Island Drive,
Sandy Springs, GA 30328
WHY: On November 8, 2016, Fulton County voters, including residents of Sandy Springs, approved the Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (T-SPLOST) to support transportation improvements over the five-year program. The collection of the 0.75 percent (3/4 of a cent) sales tax began in April 2017 with an estimated $103.7 million anticipated to be raised for use in Sandy Springs for transportation improvements; an estimated $600M over five years for Fulton County cities (outside the City of Atlanta).
The Mount Vernon and Long Island Drive project will provide traffic efficiency improvements including a dedicated left turn lane and pedestrian crossing. The total project cost is $100,000.
Public Meeting Agendas and Minutes
Prior to meetings of City Council, board and commissions, agendas with supporting documents are posted online. During a City Council meeting, items that are noted as new business, unfinished business, public hearing or a part of a zoning agenda (heard the second Council meeting of the month) will be discussed and available for public comment. If you would like to speak during a Council meeting, please fill out a public comment card and submit it to the City Clerk prior to the meeting start (Comment Cards are available as you enter Council chambers). Make sure to print clearly your name and the agenda item number for the item about which you wish to speak. Work Session immediately follows the regular meeting, and as the name implies, it is an opportunity for the City Council to discuss - but not vote - on individual items of business. Executive Sessions are held on an as-needed basis and in following state law, are called to discuss topics including: employee matters, pending litigation, future acquisition of real estate, staff meetings regarding investigative purposes, and tax matters. If any of the topics discussed requires a vote, the Mayor and City Council will call for the vote in a public forum.
Minutes are not issued for the following meetings: Community Developer Resolution, Community Zoning Information
