On November 8, 2016, Fulton County voters, including residents of Sandy Springs, approved the Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (T-SPLOST), a referendum to fund transportation improvements within the participating cities. In Sandy Springs, T-SPLOST passed with 56.7 percent of the vote.

The collection of the 0.75 percent (3/4 of a cent) sales tax began in April 2017 to fund the T-SPLOST transportation projects.  An estimate $103.7 million over five years is expected to be raised for use in Sandy Springs for transportation improvements.  

Who pays the 0.75 percent tax?  The sales tax will be paid by anyone - residents, visitors, businesses and tourists - who buy taxable products or services inside Fulton County, outside City of Atlanta limits.  

Where will the money be spent?  The T-SPLOST dollars are allocated to projects identified and approved by the City Council as part of the T-SPLOST initiative. Those projects are listed below with links to further information related to each of the main project areas:

Traffic Efficiency Improvements: Provides for local intersection and traffic efficiency upgrades throughout the city ($18,000,000)

Perimeter Transit Last Mile Connectivity: Construct Perimeter Trails and acquire right-of-way for future high capacity transit linking the Perimeter CID and other alternative transportation options ($8,000,000)

Sidewalk Program: Continue filling sidewalk gaps throughout Sandy Springs ($11,000,000)

No facilities found.
