The Transportation Investment Act of 2010 (TIA) constrained draft investment list was approved unanimously by the Northwest Georgia Regional Roundtable Executive Committee Aug. 11. The five-member committee voted to approve a $1.2 billion draft list of transportation projects to get the region moving over the next 10 years. The projects potentially will be funded by a penny sales tax to be voted on next year.

The draft list must be approved by the full roundtable by Oct. 15 and submitted to the Georgia Department of Transportation. Residents of all 15 counties in Northwest Georgia will have the opportunity to provide input to the draft list through two public meetings.

The first will be Sept. 20 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Clarence Brown Conference Center, 5450 State Route 20, Cartersville. The second will follow Sept. 22 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Whitfield County Courthouse, 205 N. Selvidge St., Dalton.
