Who We Are

The South Fulton Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) of Fulton County seeks to define jurisdiction-wide goals and priorities for south Fulton County, including unincorporated south Fulton and the municipalities of Chattahoochee Hills, College Park, East Point. Fairburn, Hapeville, Palmetto and Union City.

The south Fulton CTP will develop a program of goals, objectives, and strategies aimed at evaluating, coordinating, and making the necessary recommendations into the regional transportation planning process. A key outcome of the CTP is the identification and reconfirmation of local community visions and priorities through an assessment of existing and future needs of south Fulton and the seven cities.

The CTP will assist south Fulton communities in defining jurisdiction-wide goals and priorities, assessing current and future mobility needs, and developing transportation planning strategies to:

  • Increase mobility and capacity in growing urban and rural areas
  • Mitigate traffic congestion by expediting truck traffic
  • Encourage transit alternatives and improvements to increase transporatation choices and service quality
  • Facilitate and incorporate private sector involvement in transportation improvements
  • Be responsive to citizen needs and concerns

Study Area

The area of study for the CTP is the southern portion of Fulton County. The municipalities of Chattahoochee Hills, College Park, East Point, Fairburn, Hapeville, Palmetto and Union City are included in the CTP study area. Additionally, the study area will encompass an area three to five miles outside the Fulton County boundary into adjacent counties to promote coordinated long-range transportation planning efforts.

Stakeholder Involvement

Stakeholder involvement is an integral component of the CTP and will occur throughout all phases of the study process. Generating public awareness and ultimately public acceptance is critical to the success of the south Fulton CTP. Several outreach techniques will be employed to achieve this goal including, but not limited to, public open house meetings, newspaper advertising, a project web site, social media, direct mail, e-mail, and attendance at community events.

Emphasis will be placed on engaging the area's low income and ethnic communities to encourage participation from the broader community.

Study Process

The study process consists of a series of tasks to develop a CTP for entirety of south Fulton County, including the seven municipalities. These tasks include:

Develop Vision, Goals, and Objectives
This task will develop a vision that will reflect the transportation needs and desires for the county and the seven municipalities. This task includes coordination with Fulton County, Chattahoochee Hills, College Park, East Point, Fairburn, Hapeville, Palmetto and Union City. This task will also include development of criteria to determine how well recommended projects and programs meet the south Fulton County CTP goals.
Existing Conditions Analyses
This task includes an inventory of existing conditions of the transportation network, including infrastructure such as streets, roads and highways, bridges, truck and freight corridors, bicycle and pedestrian facilitates, and public transportation. Additionally, existing land use data, transportation demand management policies and programs, and demographic data such as population, housing, and employment will be collected and analyzed.
Assessment of Current and Future Needs
This task includes determining whether the future needs of south Fulton County can be met with the existing facilities and services and whether improvements and policies will be needed to meet the needs anticipated because of population and economic growth. This task will also identify physical and budgetary constraints.
Recommendations
This task identifies recommendations and investment strategies to meet the vision, goals, and objectives identified earlier. Recommendations will be prioritized and a cost-benefit analysis will be performed. A five year action plan for transportation and land use recommendations will be developed.
Final Documentation
Information collected and developed as part of the other tasks will be compiled into a final document. The final document will include the Community Participation Plan, Existing Conditions and Needs Assessment Reports, Recommendations Report, and a Five-Year Project Action Plan.
