In November 2016, citizens throughout Fulton County will have the opportunity to vote on a proposed Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (T-SPLOST). The prospective referendum, based on the 2015 census, could bring a forecasted $13,752,484 to the City of Fairburn over the next five years to fund transportation projects.
The City of Fairburn's staff received input from various stakeholders including its residents and elected officials to develop the below project list. This list will become a part of the Final Master Project List to be included in both the Resolution Authorizing the T-SPLOST Referendum and the Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) between Unincorporated Fulton County and the thirteen (13) Cities within the County, with the exception of the City of Atlanta. Tier I Projects are based on 85% of revenue projections. Tier II Projects are based on revenues above 85% of the projections up to 100% and Tier III Projects can be built if revenues exceed 100% of the projected revenues.
