Community Development Plans Often Overlook the Needs of Black Boys

  Dear Atlanta Stakeholder,The Renew Atlanta/TSPLOST programs, launched in 2015 and 2016, were created to address the $1B+ infrastructure backlog facing the city.Though the programs have made much progress to date delivering key projects across Atlanta, we face significant challenges as we move forward to complete the full initial program scope.

Simply put – the cost to deliver the full scope of the initial program considerably exceeds the funding available from the Renew Atlanta Bond and TSPLOST revenues.

Thus, we are working diligently to transparently prioritize and re-baseline the initial program lists to deliver the greatest impact to Atlanta’s above-ground infrastructure and transportation network with the available funds.

Community development plans often overlook the needs of Black boys

Through this re-baselining, we are dedicated to engaging stakeholders to help inform the process.

We must ensure our policies that improve safety and mobility don’t disregard our Black boys.

Decisions around recreation centers will be made which are safe havens for many Black boys after school.

Also decisions on improvements for sidewalks, street lights, parks and parks are made.

Your engagement makes a difference in the equity!
