Councilmember Sadd to Host Gwinnett Transit Meeting March 4


PEACHTREE CORNERS, GA, Feb. 25, 2019 – Post 1 Councilmember Phil Sadd is hosting a Community Meeting on Monday, March 4 at 7:00 p.m. to discuss the upcoming Gwinnett County Transit Referendum.  The meeting will be held at the Winters Chapel United Methodist Church, 5105 Winters Chapel Road, Peachtree Corners, GA. The keynote speaker for this meeting is State Senator Brandon Beach, Chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee.


Senator Beach was vital in the creation of the Atlanta-Region Transit Authority (ATL), which helps direct regional transit growth, as well as provides funding to Metro-Atlanta transit. The bill that set up the ATL is the same as the one that facilitated the upcoming Gwinnett County Referendum. If passed it will expand public transportation in Gwinnett.


“It is important that citizens are educated about Gwinnett’s proposed solutions for improving traffic, so they can make an informed vote about the Transit Referendum,” said Councilmember Sadd.  “This meeting will help prepare voters to decide if Gwinnett’s transit system and services should expand based on its plan and contract with MARTA through a one-cent tax.”


The meeting is open to the public and will include an open Q&A session giving citizens an opportunity to voice concerns and ask questions about this very important topic.
