Public Input Requested On Regional Transportation Plan

Released January 26, 2022 02:22 PM

The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) is accepting public comment for a proposed update of the region’s Transportation Improvement Program, or TIP, which programs federal and state funding for transportation projects across metro Atlanta.  Additional information about the TIP is available at https://bit.ly/3fZ3ksB

The update includes an additional $10.7 million to fund 17 Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) projects across the region. LCI is a grant program that assists local jurisdictions in transforming their communities into more vibrant, walkable places that offer increased mobility options and support community health and economic opportunity (additional information at https://bit.ly/3GZiiL4).  Changes to other projects submitted by the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) will also be a part of this amendment to the TIP.

ARC’s Transportation and Air Quality Committee (TAQC) and the ARC Board will take action on this TIP Amendment in March following the public review and comment period, which ends on Friday, February 11. You can submit public comments to transportation@atlantaregional.org.

A virtual public hearing will take place on Wednesday, Feb. 9 at 10:30 AM. Requests to speak at this public hearing (https://bit.ly/3G2DL4B) will be accepted until 4:00 PM on Tuesday, February 8 and must be sent to transportation@atlantaregional.org.
