How You Can Help Ensure the Future of the Atlanta BeltLine...
This fall, we all have an opportunity to help ensure the future of the Atlanta BeltLine. Passage of the TSPLOST and MARTA sales tax amendments that will be on the ballot Nov. 8 will go far toward ensuring we all realize the vision of the Atlanta BeltLine sooner rather than later. We need you to VOTE YES for both of these important ballot items and also encourage everyone you know to do the same. You'll be hearing more from us on this important topic in the days and weeks ahead, but we encourage you to educate yourself on these important ballot items. You can learn more about TSPLOST and the MARTA tax on this City of Atlanta webpage. Additional insight into the MARTA tax can be found on this MARTA webpage focusing on system expansion.

Keith Parker is CEO and General Manager of the Metro Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA). Read his thoughts on the importance of investing now in Atlanta's transportation future in this Saporta Report Thought Leadership article.

In this op-ed, Ben Wright of Georgia Trend writes about how yes votes on these two important referenda not only move our transportation and transit agendas forward, but they're also votes for walkability and sustainability.

Here are a few key dates to keep in mind:

Early Voting: Oct. 17 - Nov. 4
Election Day: Nov. 8
If you've not yet registered to vote, you can do so here.
