Traffic calming, ‘Smart City’ work on Atlanta committee’s agenda

The Atlanta City Council’s transportation committee meets at 10:30 a.m. July 26 at Atlanta City Hall, 55 Trinity Ave. in Committee Room 1 to discuss a proposed ordinance by councilwoman Natalyn Archibong authorizing payment of $8,400 for the installation of two traffic calming services on Clay Street N.E. between Hosea L. Williams Drive N.E. and Wade Avenue N.E.

Also on the committee’s agenda is an item connected to Atlanta’s initiative for North Avenue. The resolution by councilwoman Keisha Lance Bottoms would have the city entering an agreement with the Georgia Tech Research Corp. for Smart Cities Atlanta North Avenue and special event demonstration project services on behalf of the Renew Atlanta/TSPLOST program.

The cost would be no more more than $350,000. North Avenue is hosting a pilot program employing various technologies to create across-the-board efficiencies and improvements along the corridor. The technology includes smart cameras and intelligent lighting nodes. An unveiling of the changes is slated for September.
