Part of our service area is the cities of Milton and Alpharetta, both in North Fulton County, along with Johns Creek, Duluth and Roswell. North Fulton has been a high-growth area for decades, boasting excellent schools and a strong job market for professionals and executives.
Milton is just over 5 years old, having been carved out of portions of unincorporated Fulton County on the west side of GA 400. Though there is no central downtown area, Milton residents have nonetheless developed a sense of community and much has been done in a short time by Milton Mayor Joe Lockwood and the Milton City Council. Much of Milton once you leave GA 400 and Hwy 9 consists of scenic beauty with large estate homes, stunning horse stables, golf courses and impressive neighborhoods.
Just to the south, downtown Alpharetta is transforming into a sparkling jewel of Metro Atlanta, with two exciting projects underway. At State Bridge Road and GA 400, really the Gateway to Alpharetta, Avalon is beginning to take shape. Avalon is intended to be a luxurious live, work and play destination with high-end shops and restaurants, Whole Foods, a mega-movie theatre, a luxury hotel, first-class office space and an estimated 800 residents. Also taking shape is City Center in Alpharetta, which is an inspired redevelopment of downtown Alpharetta which will eventually encompass a new city hall, library, 5-acre park, a cleverly disguised parking deck plus new shops and residences.
But really, even though they are distinct cities, Alpharetta and Milton tends to blur together, with city leaders even negotiating for residents of both cities to share all recreational facilities throughout the area. Many Milton residents (Ben included- he’s lived in Milton since 1997) still use Alpharetta for mailing purposes as the mail is delivered from the Alpharetta post office.
All the cities of North Fulton County- from Roswell and Sandy Springs to the south, Duluth and Johns creek further north and east of GA 400, and of course the previously described Alpharetta and Milton- are blessed with great jobs, schools, shopping, dining and quality of life, truly great places to live.
