A team of iDiploma students are committed to reducing traffic in the City of Sandy Springs, a design brief that originated from the Mayor’s office. Mayor Rusty Paul, along with the Sandy Springs City Council, has been working on the traffic problem in the city, and these students have now been given the opportunity to be part of the solution. Currently, a team of students are leading conversations with members of the community including Sandy Springs Neighborhood Associations, Mount Vernon parents and students, and Georgia Commute Options. The student team is currently conducting traffic and carpool experiments at Mount Vernon Presbyterian School to decrease traffic in the school community by 10%. Their goal is to use MVPS as a small area case study group, develop traffic recommendations for schools in the Sandy Springs area and the city as a whole.
