If DeKalb were to implement a new one-percent transportation tax, it could provide $3.65 billion in revenue over 30 years. That tax would increases the county’s total sales tax to 9 percent.
According to the Transit Master Plan timeline, DeKalb’s cities will provide feedback on recommendations in June and July. The DeKalb County commission is scheduled to sign off on the final report in July.
Once the Transit Master Plan is complete, it will be used to coordinate projects and resources with the new regional ATL Board.
