T-SPLOST: An Overview
On November 8, 2016, Fulton County voters approved the Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (T-SPLOST) referendum to fund transportation projects in their cities. In the City of Roswell, the measure passed 53.75% to 46.25%. Countywide the measure passed 52.80% to 47.20%. T-SPLOST will bring in an estimated $93 million to the City of Roswell for transportation improvements. Beginning in April 2017, a 0.75% (3/4 of a cent) sales tax will be collected to fund transportation projects specifically recommended by each Fulton County city.

What is T-SPLOST?
T-SPLOST stands for Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax.

Simply put, it's a sales tax that would be paid on taxable goods and services in Fulton County. All funds received would be used specifically for transportation improvements throughout Fulton County.

The sales tax would be in place for 5 years.

Why do we need it?
Fulton County residents have identified transportation and congestion relief as the single most important issue facing Metro Atlanta.

How much will it cost?
The Fulton County T-SPLOST proposal is for a 0.75% sales tax, or 3/4 of a penny.

It is estimated that up to $655 million could be raised for the participating cities and unincorporated Fulton County, outside the City of Atlanta.

Who will pay the sales tax?
The sales tax will be paid by anyone who buys taxable products or services in Fulton County, outside of City of Atlanta limits.

This includes tourists, visitors, businesses and residents.

How will this benefit Roswell?
The City of Roswell's estimated share is $93 million.

This money would first be used on priority projects like Big Creek Parkway, the Historic Gateway Project, and other transportation projects our residents identified as important.

Episode I
T-SPLOST: Where Are We Now?
October 13, 2017
In our first episode, Transportation Director Steve Acenbrak reminds us what T-SPLOST is and explains that the City has started receiving monthly T-SPLOST collections, which are being put into a special account for the approved construction projects. Steve explains that while those funds are building up, there’s a lot going on behind the scenes to prepare for upcoming projects. He takes us to a construction site to show us the complex process that goes into all transportation projects and then visits the future site of Big Creek Parkway, our largest upcoming T-SPLOST project.
