Alpharetta's revised concept plan for its City Center project takes center stage in a public information meeting on today, June 6 at .
The city will present the final working concept plans for its City Center Project. The session will consist of two parts, an open house beginning at 6:30 p.m. and a formal presentation and Q&A session beginning at 7 p.m.
The meeting is an opportunity for the public to view the plans and ask questions.
In July 2011 the city unveiled its vision for the redevelopment of 22-acres of property in the heart of Downtown Alpharetta that has come to be known as the City Center Project. The plan was developed over a period of months and relied on three public input meetings and online forums to collect insights from city residents into the look and feel that Alpharettans want their downtown to have.
Today's version of the City Center plan has been created by the architecture firm of Smallwood, Reynolds, Stewart & Stewart, which was selected earlier this year to serve as the master planner for the City Center Project. According to city officials, the revised plan honors the general concepts of the 2011 vision while creating a vibrant and viable commercial development that is used and active throughout the day and into the evening..
The revised concept plans will be formally presented to Alpharetta City Council during their June 11 regular meeting. If adopted that night, the plans will be used to develop engineered drawings and construction documents from which City Center will be built.
