Mayor Kasim Reed has made a
commitment to address the city's pressing infrastructure challenges.
Today, the city faces an infrastructure backlog
of more than $900 million. In order to begin improving our city's
roads, bridges, sidewalks and expand our green spaces, the city is
proposing a bond infrastructure referendum to pay for these repairs and
improvements. The Departments of Public Works, Planning
and Community Development, in coordination with the Atlanta City
Council, are seeking public input to determine priority and criteria for
project selection for the bond.
To that end, a series of
information/community engagement sessions will be held throughout the
city to solicit public input on what types of
projects should be funded with the bond proceeds. An overview of the
state of the city’s infrastructure and the referendum process will be
included as part of the discussion. There will be three (3) rounds of
public information meetings held between June
2014 and February 2015. Residents are invited to attend one or more of
What is a Bond?
Bonds are investment opportunities issued by an entity that is
authorized to sell bonds to investors. After the bonds are released into
the market and investors subscribe to them, the proceeds are used to
infrastructure projects. These developments include basic facilities
and other projects. The facilities may include transportation and
communication systems, and public buildings.
Why do an Infrastructure Bond?
Atlanta has aging transportation infrastructure: $881M is needed to restore and/or replace existing bridges, roads, sidewalks,
street lights, signals and signs to good condition.
Atlanta has aging facility infrastructure: $130.8M is needed to restore and/or replace city facilities (fire stations,
police stations, recreation centers, etc.) to good condition.
The decision will rest with the voters: The City of Atlanta recommends a diversified funding plan to address the infrastructure
backlog that begins with a $250M general obligation bond to be presented to the voters in March 2015.

the 2015 Proposed Infrastructure Bond may be sent to:
