July 31st Transportation Referendum Series: Part 1

tiredoftrafficOn July 31, 2012, voters across the Metro Atlanta region will decide whether to approve a 1% sales tax across 10 counties to fund a list of transportation projects in these counties.

Emory's Office of Governmental and Community Affairs and the Office of Sustainability Initiatives have partnered to develop a website to educate the Emory community about the July 31st Transportation Referendum.  Visit for information on the referendum, including project maps and FAQs. 

In addition, the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) is hosting 12 Wireside Chats over six evenings in June.  Local officials will provide a brief overview of the July 31st referendum and participants will have the opportunity to ask questions. These evening phone conversations are open to the public. Register at or call 404.463.3227
