Regional Roundtable dials metro Atlanta residents

ATLANTA – The Atlanta Regional Commission launched a series of tele town halls this week to educate metro residents about the Transportation Investment Act and solicity their thoughts about the region’s transportation priorities.

Monday’s town halls targeted residents of Henry County and Douglas County.

According to the Atlanta Regional Commission, more than 70,000 residents received a phone call Monday night with 9,632 Henry County and 5,600 Douglas County residents actually participating in the hour-long calls.

The full audio from each town hall is available on the Atlanta Regional Roundtable Web site.

“Not everyone can come to a public meeting,” Norcross Mayor and Regional Roundtable Chair Bucky Johnson said. “This technology allows us to come to the public. We encourage everyone who is called to participate in shaping our transportation future.”

The last tele town halls will be held June 22 and will target Fulton and Clayton residents. The Atlanta Regional Commission expects the calls to reach more than one million residents in the 10-county region.
