$2.7 billion MARTA project moving to mayor's desk for approval
On Thursday, the MARTA Board of Directors announced that they had submitted recommendations to Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms which call for the historic expansion of the metro area's largest transit system.
Просмотров: 65 11Alive
When a section of I-85 melted right before our very eyes recently, plenty of people said it was, “like a scene right out of a movie.” Here’s what I’d call it: “Towering Inferno: The Rise of MARTA,” That's because the transit agency is straight killing it at the box office right now. Their ridership is up 25 percent since the disaster. Many of the 255 thousand commuters who usually drive that stretch of I-85 are packing onto MARTA buses and trains. There's so many, in fact, that 10 of MARTA’s parking lots have been sold out on weekdays. Even Gwinnett County, which rejected MARTA in favor of its own transit system, is making a rare cameo appearance at two MARTA stations. They're re-routing some transit buses so Gwinnett riders can board directly at the Doraville and Chamblee MARTA stations. State transportation officials estimate I-85 won’t reopen until mid-June. So, since MARTA will be center stage for months, now is the time to talk seriously about making it better, about spending the money and political capital to make it the kind of system this region deserves. A system that more riders will want to use once this latest crisis is over, and before another crisis hits. For that to happen, the state needs to get in on the act. Did you know that the State of Georgia doesn’t contribute a dime to help operate transit systems like MARTA? That’s sad and shortsighted. Studies show that every dollar spent on transit generates four dollars in economic returns. Full disclosure here: I was the agency’s spokesman for nearly eight years. Before that, I covered MARTA as a journalist and I was one of its harshest critics. As we learned last week, MARTA has a lot of work to do to make people safer, and to make them feel safer. And I get it; most people in metro Atlanta prefer to drive and that may never ever change. But every single day, MARTA is an invaluable asset for thousands of people who don’t own a car -- or can’t drive. On top of that, MARTA keeps tens of thousands of cars off the road, which relieves traffic for those of us who do drive. House lawmakers just approved a resolution creating a new Commission on Transit Governance and Funding, acknowledging the need for regional transportation solutions to keep our economy moving. And right on cue, the I-85 disaster underlined that need. It’s a matter of priorities. Several years ago, Governor Nathan Deal signed a bill that committed 10 billion dollars for our roads over the next 10 years, and that’s a good thing. But now is the time for the Governor and the state legislature to focus on making MARTA a world-class complement to our roads, and to our airport. Over the next two months, when you find yourself sitting in traffic – or trying to find a parking space at a MARTA lot – think about what you’d say to the Governor and our state lawmakers to convince them that better transit is important to our future. Then call or write – and demand it. Here is contact information for the Governor, for the Lt. Governor and Speaker of the House. But you don’t have to wait for the politicians to do the right thing. If you want to get directly involved in improving metro Atlanta’s biggest transit system, you should join the MARTA Army. These dedicated volunteers don’t work for the agency. But they’re on the front lines helping MARTA to do more and do better by its customers. You can find them online at MARTA Army dot org or on Twitter and Facebook. Not - this isn’t a movie, of course. But you too can play an starring role in ensuring a happy ending to metro Atlanta’s traffic horror show. I’m Lyle Harris and that’s my opinion. Like it, or not. **Note: The views represented in this segment are those of Lyle Harris, and are not necessarily those of FOX 5 Atlanta or its employees.

MARTA Continues Community Outreach in Clayton County
Mass transit officials in Atlanta have expansion on their minds. MARTA wants to add high capacity lines to existing bus service in Clayton County. This could mean that trains from the airport might travel further south to the cities of Jonesboro, Morrow or Riverdale. Town halls seeking public input on future transit options are happening across the county, including a recent one at Clayton State University. “We’re at a point where we’ve identified the number one corridor that we want to pursue,” Don Williams, the Director of Long Range Planning at MARTA, told residents in attendance. “This is your opportunity to say well, you got it right or you got it wrong.” Local residents at this meeting seemed supportive of MARTA’s expansion plans. But they were slightly discouraged at the time it takes to get those trains rolling through their communities. “Speeding up looks like speeding up is not happening,” said Brenda Harrison, “based on the fact that there are processes that MARTA says they have to go through to get federal funding. And that takes years.” Harrison lives in Morrow and voted for the MARTA referendum in 2014. She believes more buses can help make Clayton more accessible while transportation leaders go through the slow process of securing money. “We need to add more routes that accommodate community centers,” Harrison said. “There is no bus line that connects the citizens of Clayton County to International Park, which is a total activities center.” MARTA officials welcomed the feedback they received from Harrison and others at the hearing. “I am very very happy with the response we got from the community group,” Williams said. “The questions were indeed what we are looking for. Because until we know what’s going on and what they’re thinking about, we want to make sure, in terms of our planning effort, that it has the support of the community.”

Tourism and Urban Development in Bozeman
Taylor Noel, Mackenzie Lisac, Taryn Strope, Katie Calderwood ABSTRACT FOR PRESENTATION Abstract Bozeman’s current development strategy is embracing gentrification of the county and forcing the lower class to live elsewhere. Bozeman has made itself an international destination, a tech hub, and a recreational mecca, and the valley will be consumed by subdivisions, bankrupt by infrastructure costs, and land use maxed out if the problem is not addressed. Slowing growth in the valley while simultaneously developing an urban growth plan that will prevent the Gallatin Valley from becoming the next Salt Lake City would be a viable solution to the poorly thought out urban expansion and likely solve problems involving the cost of living while accommodating the demographic that currently lives and works in Bozeman, MT. Tourism swells the city to maximum occupation during peak traveling seasons and the city becomes saturated by travelers demanding/requiring services by the local workforce. The cost of living sky rockets due to the relationship the town has with money-spending visitors and pushes working class families to live outside of town, yet working within the city. This helps support the growing expense of Bozeman living and does not begin to provide a solution for young professionals looking to buy homes within their community.

CSX Select Site Designation - LaGrange, GA
LaGrange, GA -- May 8, 2014 -- CSX Corporation today announced that a portion of the Callaway South Industrial Park in LaGrange, Georgia has been designated a CSX Select Site. Select Sites are properties identified and vetted as capable locations for future manufacturing facilities along the CSX network. These sites can be developed quickly since standard land use issues and comprehensive due diligence items have been previously addressed. "Through the Select Site program, we can significantly reduce the time it takes for companies to evaluate a competitive site, and ultimately construct their facility and bring products to market," said Clark Robertson, assistant vice president, regional development at CSX. CSX introduced the Select Sites program in 2012 to better serve new or existing customers on its network. CSX partnered with The Austin Company, a nationally-known site selection and certification consulting firm, to screen candidate sites and assist communities with the application and certification process. Callaway South Industrial Park is an established, 1,600-acre industrial park in LaGrange, adjacent to the region's LaGrange-Callaway Airport. With access to rail and its proximity to Interstate 85, most of the industrial expansion in LaGrange in the last several decades has located in the north half of the park. "The recent completion of Pegasus Parkway through the southern half of the park has opened up several hundred additional acres for industrial development along CSX's mainline," said Robertson. "This site is the result of good, long-term land planning," said Jonathan Gemmen, senior location consultant, The Austin Company. "It is rare to find a rail-served, industrial property close to an interstate with utility service able to accommodate some of the largest industrial requirements." This site is located only nine miles northeast of KIA Motors Manufacturing Georgia in nearby West Point, Georgia. Callaway South Industrial Park is only the second site in Georgia to be designated as a CSX Select Site. "The Development Authority of LaGrange has a long history of being proactive to prepare for additional growth. Teaming with CSX and The Austin Company on this designation will open doors for significant job creation and investment in the future," said Bobby Carmichael, executive director, Development Authority of LaGrange.   To receive CSX Select Site designation, the location must meet a rigorous list of criteria, including infrastructure and utility availability, environmental reviews, appropriate zoning and entitlement, air quality permitting, rail serviceability, proximity to highways or interstates, and other attributes. Once certified, the sites are featured on a new user-friendly web portal that includes press releases, promotional materials and direct marketing to site selection professionals. To learn more about LaGrange, Georgia, visit www.lagrangega.org To learn more about CSX Select Sites online, visit www.csxselectsites.com About LaGrange, GA and the Callaway South Industrial Park The Callaway South Industrial Park is a 1,600+ acre "mega-site" industrial park located three miles off Interstate-85 off Pegasus Parkway in LaGrange, Troup County, Ga.
