Place Update – April 2017
Jurisdictions to move forward on SPLOST projects
The passage of the one-penny SPLOST will help Fayette County and its municipalities fund a number of key infrastructure, safety, roads and quality-of-life projects. On Fayette County’s project list is the repair and replacement of miles of stormwater pipes that are at the end of their lifespan, deteriorated or damaged. The County will also upgrade the public safety radio system and will improve and maintain county roads leveraging federal matching dollars.
Peachtree City will use SPLOST funds to upgrade the Lake Peachtree dam and spillway to meet the current classification for Category I standards and resurface roads and make operational and congestion relief improvements. The City will also use funds to maintain and repair existing multi-use paths. SPLOST funds in the City of Fayetteville be will used to construct a new fire station and other safety department improvements, conduct miles of road resurfacing and make critical upgrades to the wastewater plant. In addition to road and sewer projects, the town of Tyrone will invest in new police vehicles and parks and recreation improvements. The town of Brooks will focus on road improvements and the town of Woolsey will receive a much-needed restoration project to its historic mercantile building to be used as a gathering place for residents and visitors.
