With funding from the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC), Milton planners have scheduled a kickoff meeting for a planning study to improve the GA Hwy 9 corridor in Milton. The meeting is scheduled to begin at 6pm on Thursday, October 27 at Milton’s City Hall. The planned agenda for the meeting will include a presentation and time for public input.
The GA Hwy 9 corridor is important to Milton’s future in that it forms the heart of Milton’s retail and transportation network and is the gateway to Milton from GA Hwy 400. According to Milton City Planner Michele McIntosh-Ross, the corridor is also home to roughly half of Milton’s population.
In February, the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) awarded Milton and Alpharetta a joint $100,000 Livable Centers Initiative grant for a planning study of the GA Hwy 9 area south from Bethany Bend to Mayfield Road and the areas east of GA Hwy 9 to GA Hwy 400, encompassing Deerfield Parkway. Once the planning study is completed and adopted by the Milton and Alpharetta City Councils, the cities may apply for additional money to implement the projects identified in the study.
