Believe it or not, there's something else on the July 31 ballot other than Brookhaven cityhood.
On July 31, residents across the 10-county Atlanta region - including DeKalb and the city of Atlanta - will vote on a referendum that would fund $8.5 billion in transportation improvements through a regional one percent sales tax.
There's a whole slew of projects that would be funded across the region if voters approve the tax. Here in Brookhaven and Chamblee, however, there are only a handful:
- Project AR-040: $53 million worth of improvements to the I-85 north/I-285 interchange.
- Project DK-014: $5 million worth of improvements to the Ashford-Dunwoody/Peachtree Road corridor.
- Project DK-018: $12 million worth of pedestrian, landscape and bike path improvements and construction along the Buford Highway corridor from Lenox Road to Shallowford Terrace.
