ATL Actions Related to Gwinnett County

  • The ATL Board on July 9th unanimously approved a transit project list submitted by Gwinnett County to the ATL as the next step in the county’s consideration of a possible voter referendum this fall. This project list represents a financially constrained subset of projects from the 2019 ARTP (as amended – information below) that the county would propose to fund in a transit-specific sales tax referendum. The ATL staff analysis included a review of five key components of the proposed list: 1) robust public engagement; 2) regional connectivity; 3) context-specific service; 4) fiscal soundness; and 5) alignment with ATL governing principles. Following procedures outlined in state law, the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners must vote to place a referendum on the ballot.

  • The ATL Board adopted on May 27th an amendment to the 2019 ATL Regional Transit Plan proposed by Gwinnett County, including modifications to previously submitted projects, as well as the addition of new projects.  The amendment increased the number of transit projects submitted by Gwinnett County for the ARTP from 62 to 99, and increased the total value of projects contained within the ARTP from $27.4 billion to $31.4 billion. 
  • The ATL conducted a 30-day public comment period to receive feedback on the proposed amendment (in compliance with requirements and guidelines outlined in Federal Transit Administration Circular C 4702.1B, and its adopted Title VI Program), which began on April 22, 2020, and concluded on May 22, 2020.  Specific information related to this ARTP amendment may be found below.
