As an Atlanta REALTOR® and real estate professional I voted YES to support Mayor Kasim Reed’s plan to borrow $250 million bond to improve the infrastructure in our City. Improved infrastructure is key to increasing livability and attracting more corporate and international investment in our city, which will trickle down to more residential development and real estate sales. The bill improves transportation and facility management projects.
From Bond Website: “Transportation projects include replacing street lights to make your neighborhood safer, repairing and replacing outdated bridges to connect communities, synchronizing traffic lights to make your commute easier and reduce congestion, installing more bike lanes and complete streets projects for more transportation options, and building and repairing sidewalks, curbs, and ADA ramps for better mobility. Facilities projects include upgrading police and fire stations and recreation centers across the City.”
Improved traffic synchronization, added bike lanes, street and bridge improvements will make living in Atlanta more enjoyable. Giving Atlantan’s more commuting options will improve the overall lifestyle of Atlanta citizens and those passing through.
