DeKalb County CEO Michael Thurmond said Monday that county officials are working with the Atlanta Regional Commission and MARTA on the plan, which is expected to be completed next year.

"The Transit Master Plan will identify fiscally sensible transit improvements that address the mobility needs of all of our residents," Thurmond said in a news release. "DeKalb County is poised to lead the region into the next frontier of transit implementation and plans to enhance the county's robust network of transportation options."

I didn't think Dekalb was actually allowed to increase its taxes at this point. I guess once they have a plan, maybe they can get the legislature to allow a referendum, but they need to get moving ASAP on all of this or it'll be 10 years before anything new is built!

Now the City of Atlanta can pay it's fair share of the Clifton Corridor and use the other funds for the BeltLine LRT.

Don't have any space for comments either.

Also they left off City of Atlanta in the scrolling bottom list of partners. Once again Atlanta-in-DeKalb gets screwed over by both Atlanta and DeKalb Co.

It’s no wonder that residents in DeKalb County – especially South DeKalb, are frustrated that they still don’t have a MARTA rail line extending along the I-20 corridor. Residents feel as though they have been shortchanged by MARTA despite having paid the penny sales tax since the early 1970s.

That’s why the stage is being set for DeKalb to up its MARTA ante by another half-penny so it can get the additional transit service it desperately wants. DeKalb County currently is conducting an analysis of its transit priorities – which could be a South DeKalb rail line or a Clifton Corridor rail line connecting MARTA’s Lindbergh Station with its Avondale station.

They attempted to sabotage MoreMARTA Atlanta because they failed to understand by law, the projects can only be in the City of Atlanta.
