On May 24, 2022, Atlanta voters approved the Moving Atlanta Forward infrastructure package — three ballot measures that make significant investments in the city’s infrastructure and economy. The measures — two bonds and the renewal of a Special Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) — will put $750M toward vital transportation, recreation, public safety, and arts projects across the city.
The Moving Atlanta Forward infrastructure program includes $460 million in transportation investments including $196.5 million for sidewalks and trails, $108 million for safe streets projects and protected bike lanes and $32 million for street repairs. The program also will invest $72.8 million in recreation centers and pools across the city, $64.6 million for park improvements and $15 million for the arts. Supporting public safety, the program invests $69.3 million in police and fire station facilities, $15 million for the 911 call center and $8 million for the Center for Diversion and Services.
The Moving Atlanta Forward infrastructure program Strategic Delivery Plan lays out how the City will activate the projects across multiple departments, including the monitoring and control measures the City will use to ensure the projects adhere to the baseline schedule, budget, and project scope. The Plan also provides a project prioritization methodology and lays out how a master schedule will be used to manage these infrastructure improvements across multiple departments as one program.
