MACTEC SELECTED BY CITY OF GALLATIN

ALPHARETTA, GA, June 23, 2008 -- MACTEC Engineering & Consulting (MACTEC E&C) has been awarded a contract from the City of Gallatin, TN to provide planning and engineering services, which include preparing a comprehensive update to the General Development & Transportation Plan. Bruce C. Coles, chairman of MACTEC, Inc., the holding company (www.mactec.com), made the announcement. The planning effort will involve personnel from MACTEC E&C Nashville and Atlanta offices.

Gallatin, population 27,000, is about 25 miles north of Nashville and is located adjacent to Old Hickory Lake, an impoundment on the Cumberland River. The city was founded in 1901 as the permanent county seat for Sumner County and in recent years has experienced rapid growth which has contributed to the need to update the plan.

According to MACTEC Project Manager Lee Walton, MACTEC is working with a wide range of community stakeholders in preparing the plan update, which will address issues including housing options; economic development; community facilities and resources; transportation; land use and urban design; and general planning.

"We worked closely with Gallatin officials early in the planning process to draft a detailed community participation program that identified community stakeholders and presented a public participation schedule," Walton said. "We have facilitated several steering committee meetings and held a series of public meetings to gather information, ideas and opinions from Gallatin residents."

Walton added that MACTEC expects to present the city with a first draft of the update in an "open house' style meeting in early June.

MACTEC, based in Alpharetta, GA, is an environmental, planning, engineering, construction management, and infrastructure services firm with more than $450 million in annual revenue and 3,000 employees in over 80 offices nationwide.
