Next Public Meeting on New Downtown Focuses on Traffic


The next public meeting on plans for a new Sandy Springs downtown area will address traffic.

On Oct. 30th, Representatives from Kimley Horn will present four scenarios balancing land use and street networks, an announcement said. The goal is to decrease congestion and create a walkable downtown town.

The downtown area would likely run along Roswell Road, south from I-285 up to Abernathy Road, including intersections at Hammond Drive, Mount Vernon and Johnson Ferry Roads, and Abernathy at Sandy Springs Circle.

Master planning firm Goody Clancy and city staff have focused on mixed-use neighborhoods, new infrastructure that can retain stormwater, creating art spaces, and opportunities for private investment.

The meeting will be held 6-8 p.m., Oct 30 at City Hall, 7840 Roswell Road. Residents and businesses are encouraged to attend.
