Is Metro Atlanta Ready for a High-Tech Future?



How often do you think about the impact of faster, better technology on our future? Have you heard of driverless cars? How could advanced teleworking technology impact the way you live and work? Or, what if you had an app on your phone that would match your transportation need with the most appropriate, efficient mode available (think bus, Uber, taxi, etc)? If additional transit-connected employment centers emerge in the south, east and west of the region, how would this impact you?

An online regional survey being conducted by the Atlanta Regional Commission poses these questions and more to find out how you think new technologies that may impact where and how we travel and live over the next 25 years. Input from this survey will be used to help ARC develop The Region’s Plan which guides public policies related to issues of transportation, land use, water quality and conservation, workforce development and aging and health resources.

The survey is visual, interactive and brief. It allows for open-ended comments throughout.

This survey is available here and is open from now through the end of March 2015. Please contact Melissa Roberts, Atlanta Regional Commission with any questions at mroberts@atlantaregional.com or 404-463-3272.

NEW RECYCLING INITIATIVE IN ALL PARKING DECKS



A new parking deck custodial contract (Kaney & Lane) now includes recycling bins in the decks. The gray bins located throughout the decks have stickers on them signifying what is recyclable and what is trash.


A parking deck trash audit performed last year by Campus Services' Deena Keeler and several student volunteers netted the following results:

Parking deck audit results - a total of 278 lbs. of waste was audited (collected over three days from all parking facilities)

  • 90% of the material collected came from fast food outlets

  • Of the trash, the following items were pulled out as recyclable:
    • 86 lbs. of paper

    • 50 lbs. of plastic

    • 6 lbs. of aluminum

    • 37 lbs. of wood waste/plastic film

    Overall, this produced a 64.4% diversion rate away from the landfill.

Transportation & Parking Services (TPS) is very excited about this collaborative effort between Campus Services’ recycling initiative and their parking customers.
