Alpharetta residents can put their own stamp on the City Center project by suggesting a name for one of the five streets that will be within the downtown development.
As the City Center project takes shape, city leaders want the public's help in naming its five interior streets.
“The citizens of Alpharetta created the vision for this special destination, so it only makes sense for the citizens of Alpharetta to help name the streets within it,” said Alpharetta Council Member Donald Mitchell. Mitchell serves as the City Council’s liaison to the downtown business community.
The City has placed a form on its website that residents can use to submit suggested names. The form includes a depiction of the site with the five streets labeled for which names are being sought. Residents can also submit suggested names by visiting City Hall or Alpharetta’s Community Development Department.
The city has criteria for the street names:
- Suggested names should reflect the history, character or essence of Downtown Alpharetta or the community as a whole.
- Street names that are identical to or too similar to the names of existing streets in Alpharetta cannot be considered.
- Streets may not be named for living individuals.
