Atlanta launched Fix-It ATL back in October, a vigorous and proactive operations campaign designed to improve the quality of life for Atlanta residents and visitors.
The city engages residents as it accelerates the repair of potholes, the beautification of public spaces and the identification of other infrastructure issues in need of attention.
“We are rolling up our sleeves for Fix-It ATL, an aggressive new campaign to fix Atlanta’s roads, neighborhoods and public spaces,” said Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms. “Residents are passionate about wanting their elected leaders to focus on the routine, yet significant, maintenance problems that impact their daily lives. Within the next few months we will have an assessment of every street in Atlanta.”
Since January, Atlanta has been filling potholes with renewed urgency. Through October, DPW has repaired more than 15,000 potholes in 2018.
Fix-It ATL will continue this momentum.
“Our pledge to the public is simple: you report it, we’ll repair it,” added Bottoms.
