Sandy Springs City Council Approves Intergovernmental Agreement With Fulton County For The Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (TSPLOST ) November 2021 Referendum

June 15, 2021

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga (June 15, 2021) - During its June 15, 2021 meeting, the Sandy Springs City Council approved an Intergovernmental Agreement with Fulton County for the Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (TSPLOST) Referendum. All cities in Fulton County, with the exception of Atlanta, must submit their potential TSPLOST projects to Fulton County. Fulton County will create a final list in July 2021. If authorized, the vote will take place on November 2, 2021.

Citizens throughout Fulton County will have the opportunity to vote on a five year T-SPLOST referendum to fund transportation projects in municipalities throughout the county. The TSPLOST referendum would extend the existing 0.75% (3/4 of a cent) sales tax approved by voters in 2016.  If approved, the sales tax collection period will be April 1, 2022-March 31, 2027.

On November 8, 2016, Fulton County voters, including residents of Sandy Springs, approved the TSPLOST a referendum to fund transportation improvements within the participating cities. The 0.75 percent (3/4 of a cent) sales tax collection began in April 2017 to fund TSPLOST transportation projects. Collections for this program will conclude on March 31, 2022.

The public provided feedback on the proposed TSPLOST projects during the Transportation Master Plan Public Input Process in January 2021, and the TSPLOST Public Input Process in April 2021. Additional virtual and in-person public input opportunities will be held this fall.

The generated revenue will be distributed based solely on jurisdictional population.
