Cents & Sensibility: Atlanta's Transportation Vision

November 8, 2011 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In 2012, the 10-county Atlanta region (Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry and Rockdale) will vote on whether to pass a 1% sales tax. The revenue generated by this tax will be used to fund a list of transportation projects, ranging from transit, roads, safety, pedestrian and bike improvements, and technology updates.

CENTS & SENSIBILITY: Atlanta’s Transportation Vision is a panel discussion on the impact that next year’s 1-cent sales tax transportation referendum will have on the region’s economy, environment and equity. This is a free symposium that Georgia Tech’s Student Planning Association (SPA) offers annually in celebration of the American Planning Association’s World Town Planning Day. This will be an exciting opportunity to hear and discuss the effects of the referendum before we go to vote in 2012.


  • Mayor Bucky Johnson, City of Norcross, Chairman of the Atlanta Regional Round Table on Transportation
  • Colleen Kiernan Director, the Sierra Club – Georgia Chapter
  • Tom Weyandt, Senior Policy Advisor on Transportation, City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office
