Transportation Investment Act of 2010

The Transportation Investment Act was passed by the Georgia Legislature in June 2010. This bill allows voters to decide on a one-percent, 10-year, regional sales tax for all types of transportation improvements. It estalishes 12 regional special tax districts of which revenues collected in that region stay in that region. As Rockdale County is part of the 12-Atlanta regions, 15 percent of funds collected will be sent directly to the county to fund local transportation projects, while 85 percent of funds support a list of regional projects created by local elected officials. The Atlanta region consists of 10 counties: Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, Dekalb, Douglas, Fayette, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry, and Rockdale. The TIA also creates a regional roundtable in each of the state’s 12 regions that includes the Rockdale County Commission Chairman and the City of Conyers Mayor. The roundtable’s primary task is to create the list of projects to be funded by the referendum if it passes. This compilation of projects must be affordable based on the amount of expected revenue, and it must be popular enough with the public that people across the Atlanta region will vote for it in 2012.  Click the fact streets below for projects on the unconstrained project list located in Rockdale County.
