Repairing streets and sidewalks are part of the proposed infrastructure bond referendum.

The City of Atlanta has scheduled another round of public hearings on the proposed infrastructure bond referendum. The city hopes to float the bond referendum in a special election in March 2015 to help clear a $1 billion backlog in repairs and upgrades to bridges, roads, sidewalks and parks.

Six more meetings will be held starting in September as a list of potential projects is narrowed down for the bond referendum. All hearings will be held from 6 to 8 p.m.
