People who live, work or play in downtown Atlanta will get a chance to help the city decide how to spend $1 million slated for transportation projects.

Councilman Amir Farokhi launched “Downtown Decides” on Tuesday as a way for residents, employees and visitors to have more say in how funds will be spent. The money comes from unused Renew/TSPLOST funds dedicated for transportation improvements in District 2.

Farokhi said public input will help city officials determine transportation priorities and gives residents a way to feel more included in that process.

“I think people want streets that don’t have potholes in them,” Farokhi told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution “I hear a lot voices on making streets safer for scooters and bikes.”
