Alpharetta sets Town Hall on TSPLOST vote

癤?

Alpharetta has scheduled to host Town Hall meeting for Tuesday evening where residents can learn more about the proposed transportation sales tax on the Nov. 8 ballot.

Mayor David Belle, City Council members and staff be on hand to discuss the Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax starting at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall. The five-year, 0.75-cent sales tax will be for unincorporated Fulton County and 13 Fulton cities other than Atlanta.

If voters approve the sales tax, Alpharetta expects to receive $62.7 million. The biggest chunk of that money, $32.6 million, would go toward congestion relief and roadway projects, followed by $25.5 million for operational improvements. Other funds would go toward safety, pedestrian, bike, landscaping and other projects.

Projects include bicycle, pedestrian and operational improvements for Kimball Bridge Road and Academy Street/Webb Bridge Road, $19 million; capacity improvements for Old Milton and Windward parkways and Haynes Bridge Road, $26.5 million; and intersection improvements for Bethany Road at Mid-Broadwell and Mayfield roads, $2.5 million.
