Project wish lists for Georgia’s 12 transportation regions are almost complete. In 2012, voters will decide whether to pay a penny sales tax to fund the work. The process of whittling-down the lists -- and convincing voters to support them -- is a challenge for municipalities trying to serve voters locally, and support the region.
Northwest Georgia and Atlanta regional officials are scheduled to propose their wish lists for a possible transportation tax Thursday. And with that, all of Georgia's twelve transportation regions will have wish lists ready to show voters. The lists detail how officials plan to spend a proposed penny sales tax for road and other projects.
