College Park - GA DOT Collaboration, Yard Waste Removal, Airport Parking...here's the latest!

The Department of Public Works has begun an assertive community outreach effort to clarify policies regarding yard waste collection.  Arrangements are being made to produce a flyer that offers directions for proper disposal of grass clippings, tree trimming and other items for weekly and bi-weekly collection.   The Sanitation Division of College Park Public Works will insert flyers with updated information into monthly utility bills, and will create updated messages to be broadcast on College Park TV-23 to ensure proper notification to citizens.  

In an effort to streamline storm sewer mapping and other related data, various staff members, including Information Technology, Engineering and Public

Works are working to secure a new software package to enable the

City of College Park to store all relevant information into a secure 

data-base.  Access to mapping is important for future planning of roads, construction and additions to the infrastructure, as well as to instantly respond to emergencies with unforeseen emergencies.  Meanwhile, direction is underway to secure related geographical and infrastructure information, including the locations of ground contours, streets and structural presence. This information will be easily accessible, once the software has been vetted and installed.

The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) recently committed much of their resources to successfully repairing the I-85 bridge collapse in downtown Atlanta.  Now, the GDOT has resumed planning for current and future considerations locally.  In the case of College Park, projects and

programs include funding considerations (via GDOT's Quick Response

Funding Program) to widen Lee Street necessary to support additional

traffic being realized due to additional MARTA transit use, more employees

at FAA resulting from last year's facility expansion, and an increased

residential presence being experienced at The Pad on Harvard.

Additionally, forward momentum regarding various infrastructure

improvements in the Buffington Road/Spur 14 area, involving Chick-fil-A

Corporate Headquarters expansion activities should begin within the coming months.

A new parking deck is planned for an area next to the Gateway Center, directly behind the SpringHill Suites hotel, and next to the CONRAC Rental Car Facility.  A number of governmental entities are involved with the approval process, including the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, and the City of Atlanta Department of Aviation (DOA).  Proper vetting of plans typically involves a 30 day public review and comment period.
