Head to Milton City Hall to Talk About the GA 9 LCI Study
What do you want the GA 9-Deerfield Parkway area to look like in the next few decades?
What should the area around GA 9 from Bethany Bend to Mayfield Road in Alpharetta look like? In two hours a public meeting will be held in Milton to plan the future of its most populated district as part of the GA 9 Livable Centers Iniviative (LCI) study.
The meeting begins at 6 p.m. at Milton City Hall, said City Planner Michele McIntosh-Ross.
This is the third of four public meetings held as part of a planning study of the Ga. 9 area from Bethany Bend in Milton to Mayfield Road in Alpharetta and the areas east of Ga. 9 to Ga. 400. The study area includes Deerfield Parkway.
A $100,000 LCI grant to Milton by the Atlanta Regional Commission (with a $25,000 match by the city), funds the study.
The LCI grant program provides funds for small area studies to determine strategies that link transportation improvements with land-use development, explained Jason Wright, the city's communications manager. These studies aim to help improve the livability and sustainability of the area.
After the completion and adoption of the plan, the areas become eligible for additional money to implement the transportation projects identified in the study.
At every step in the process, the city and its consultants are gathering input, through public meetings and stakeholder meetings.
