Tuesday’s passage of the TSPLOST and MARTA votes paves the way for significant improvements to mobility across the city of Atlanta. This kind of progress could not occur without the leadership of Mayor Reed and the support of City of Atlanta residents. Your votes in support of both the TSPLOST and MARTA referenda clearly indicated your desire for more greenspace and transportation alternatives. We are humbled and honored by your trust in us to continue to bring you the trails, parks, and transit of the Atlanta BeltLine.
With passage of these referenda, funds will be available to purchase the remaining land needed to complete the Atlanta BeltLine loop and to build out a complete transit network – the centerpiece of the Atlanta BeltLine vision.
We take your vote of confidence and trust seriously and pledge to be transparent, collaborative, and accountable in all we do. We welcome your help and feedback all along the way and we ask for your continued engagement as we move forward through the process of implementation.
You passed historic funding that will redefine our city’s future. As your implementation agent, we at Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. (ABI) thank you for your confidence in the vision and for your continued support as we move to make Atlanta a better place for everyone.
