ROSWELL, Ga. – The public is invited to help shape the future of transit in the region and throughout Fulton County at the Fulton County Transit Master Plan Public Information and Input Meeting.
The event is 5 p.m. Thursday, June 29, in Room 220 at Roswell City Hall, 38 Hill Street.
The focus of the meeting is transit outside the city limits of Atlanta. The meeting is at the request of the Fulton County Board of Commissioners and the cities of Fulton County outside of Atlanta.
The Atlanta Regional Commission is developing a Fulton County Transit Master Plan. The master plan will include:
• a review of each city’s community and economic development strategies,
• analysis of existing transit services and needs,
• and development of a financial model to determine the potential for expanded transit services within Fulton County.
Two rounds of public meetings will be held to provide information and gather public input. The first round of public meetings of which Roswell’s June 29 meeting is the first.
The plan will focus on each city’s plans for the future, the potential role of transit within that vision, and public needs and desires related to transportation and transit.
A second round of public meetings will likely be held in the Fall of 2017 to review the community vision, summarize the transit market analysis and needs, and provide an overview of existing and potential transit services.
