PTC gas cart ban question goes to online survey

UPDATED Tuesday, July 27, 2010 — A proposal to ban gasoline-powered golf carts in Peachtree City would grandfather them for 10 years before none would be allowed to operate on the city’s street and cart paths.

The proposal, in ordinance form, is scheduled to be considered at the Aug. 5 meeting of the Peachtree City Council.

The gas-powered cart ban also is being brought up for an informal vote among residents in an online survey hosted by the city. The survey can be accessed at www.surveymonkey.com/s/TVYC729.

The survey asks gas cart owners to explain why they purchased a gas cart instead of an electric-powered model. All cart owners are also asked if they support, oppose or are neutral towards the proposed ban.

Gas golf carts have drawn complaints from residents due to noise, odor and at least a perception that they go faster than electric carts.

Gas carts also have a bit of an advantage over electric carts since they can be easily refilled when empty. Electric carts must be taken out of service for charging.

Of the city’s 10,496 registered golf carts, just 5 percent are gasoline powered, according to city records.

Mayor Don Haddix has said the city also may have to consider grandfathering in the existing inventory of gas golf carts at local cart dealers.

Haddix said he has received a number of emails already supporting a ban on gas-powered golf carts.
