T-SPLOST: An Overview
On November 8, 2016, Fulton County voters approved the Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (T-SPLOST) referendum to fund transportation projects in their cities. In the City of Roswell, the measure passed 53.75% to 46.25%. Countywide the measure passed 52.80% to 47.20%. T-SPLOST will bring in an estimated $93 million to the City of Roswell for transportation improvements. In April 2017, a 0.75% (3/4 of a cent) sales tax went into effect to fund transportation projects specifically recommended by each Fulton County city.
Learn more about the new sales tax in the Georgia Department of Revenue's Policy Bulletin.

T-SPLOST: Where Are We Now?
October 13, 2017
In our first episode, former Transportation Director Steve Acenbrak reminds us what T-SPLOST is and explains that the City has started receiving monthly T-SPLOST collections, which are being put into a special account for the approved construction projects. Steve explains that while those funds are building up, there's a lot going on behind the scenes to prepare for upcoming projects. He takes us to a construction site to show us the complex process that goes into all transportation projects and then visits the future site of Big Creek Parkway, our largest upcoming T-SPLOST project.
The City of Roswell is starting work to transform Hardscrabble Road into a "complete street" that will be as functional and safe for pedestrians and bicyclists as it will be for vehicles.
