Chamber Suppoorts New SPLOST

The Fayette Chamber of Commerce was a sponsor for the Untie Atlanta effort to pass the TSPLOST.  They supported the 2010 SPLOST.  They support bringing mass transit to Fayette.  They support low cost housing in Fayette.  They support building more retail in Fayette.  They support a performing arts center. They support Pinewood Forest.  Plus more that is not wanted in Fayette.

 

The simple reality is they support what benefits them.  The citizens of Fayette really don't count.

 

I oppose the SPLOST.  It is, in fact, about a $200 per year tax increase on the average household.

 

It is double taxation.  By that I mean if passed Peachtree City and Fayetteville will be paying toward County Stormwater, which they do not do now, while still paying their own City Stormwater Fee.  The cost being about $200 per year for the average household  for the SPLOST alone.
 

Are your elected officials supporting this?  I know the ones in Peachtree City are, as is mayoral candidate Eric Imker.

Plans for 54 and 74

The proposals regarding changes to 54 and 74 are extreme, harmful and a huge impact to Peachtree City. Businesses at The Avenue, Marketplace or Westpark should be very concerned.

 

It is obvious that Council either does not understand what they are pushing or does not care. None of this originated from GDOT, who does some approvals only because a City wants it and for no other reason. Pond, a long time used by Peachtree City engineering company, obviously was not given instructions to see if they could find a real solution. As I saw while at City Hall, they were told to find some proposal and present it.

Chaos on 54

UPDATED 8-8-2015

 

For those who have not seen what Council is planning and pursuing on 54 in Wilkesmoor, it is within this article.

 

When I talked to GDOT about adding ramps to 85 from Fischer Road, they liked it. They said it was a project they would dig into deeper after finishing the 74/85 intersection. That it would pull Coweta commuter traffic to Atlanta out of PTC.

 

Learnard, Fleisch and Imker would not get behind it. They even tried to say Coweta didn't want it so it would not happen.

Information on MacDuff Parkway

I am seeing some confusion on the MacDuff Extension. There are some who do not understand how it will connect to 74, what is meant by traffic calming devices, etc.

 

Having had dealings with the development in 2008 and 2009, on Council, after it being annexed by another Council in 2007, I am familiar.

 

So, here is some material to either clear things up or add to the confusion.

$70,000.00 Traffic Study

When this issue came up while I was Mayor, I opposed it. The engineering studies made in 2008 and 2009 plus the rejection of most options for the 74/54 intersection were proofs given for the waste of time and money this would be.

 

Well, Mayor Fleisch and Councimember Learnard continued to push for the study and was joined by Councilmember Ernst.
