LAWSUIT CHALLENGES TRANSPORTATION PLANNING PROCESS

The Atlanta Coalition of the Transportation Crisis, the Eighth Ward Civic Association, Inc., the Inman Park Restoration Inc. and four individuals have filed suit challenging the master planning process of the Atlanta, Georgia region. They charge that the plan fails to allow sufficient input from citizens, that there is a failure to consider alternatives and the DOT has not renewed the Atlanta Regional Commission's certification of the regional planning process for 1974. The cause of action is to enjoin DOT from approving the plan which would then cut off federal aid and they seek an injunction against two Georgia transportation agencys to prevent them from planning, designing or constructing and tollways until the regional plan has been approved. DOT will file answers to these contentions by late May. This case has broad implication as a precedent.
