COMMITTEE ON COUNCIL
Committee on Council focuses on City Council operations. There may be an opportunity to add an eighth committee to enable us to better focus on such issues as housing affordability, youth development, and sustainability.
The Transportation Committee recommends on matters pertaining to transportation, generally, including the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA). One of its main functions is overseeing the Department of Aviation which operates Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the world’s busiest airport. The Transportation Committee also has purview over the Department of Transportation, whose task it is to perform traffic studies, install traffic signage and traffic calming devices throughout the city, etc. This assignment will allow Councilmember Wan to continue pushing on the various infrastructure projects that the voters authorized in both the 2015 Renew Atlanta infrastructure bond and the 2022 Moving Atlanta Forward referendum dollars voters approved. Councilmember Wan will also be pushing the various infrastructure repair projects that the neighborhood associations compiled last year.
