Mayor Andre Dickens just presented his strategic delivery plan to ‘Move Atlanta Forward’, in an ambitious initiative set to improve the several infrastructures for city living here in the ATL. The administration is pushing ahead to deliver the $750 million project that voters approved last May.
Projects under the Moving Atlanta Forward infrastructure imitative include transportation investments, sidewalks and trails, street repair, security, and more!
“We are ready to Move Atlanta Forward through these historic infrastructure investments,” Mayor Dickens said. “These game-changing investments in transportation, greenspaces and public safety will help us ensure that Atlanta is a city built for the future. Our Strategic Delivery Plan spells out our commitment to deliver these projects as we have promised.”
$460 million will be invested in transportation, $108 million for safer streets and protected bike lanes, as well as $32 million for street repairs. Other investments include supporting the arts, park improvements, recreation centers and pools, and so much more. The program was made possible thanks to $350 million in TSPLOST funds and $400 million from two bonds.
“Atlanta voters have placed their trust in the City to deliver, and we are committed to doing so in a timely, transparent and high-quality manner,” Mayor Dickens added.
The plan at large breaks down the process of each plan, as well as the departments involved. It also breaks-down the time frame, budget, and management of the projects. You can view the whole Strategic Delivery Plan, here.
