Update: SPLOST Funding
Over the last several months, city council has been working to finalize the first set of infrastructure projects to spend its SPLOST funds on. Doraville can only spend these funds as they come in, so prioritization is important.
The council came to a consensus on these issues at its retreat in February, and held a first read for the items in its March 4th meeting. We'll be voting on them in our council meeting on March 18th.
I am happy with this list, because it focuses on items I think are important: completing projects that have never been finished (Oakcliff Road); projects that have been long promised (improvements to Brook Park); and focusing on needed safety improvements (upgrades to police equipment; fixing the crosswalk at Buford Highway and Park Ave).
