Nearly a full house of citizens showed up at City Hall, Thursday evening, to hear concepts for Sandy Springs new Town Center. Sandy Springs officials did not hold this meeting, however.
The Sandy Springs Council of Neighborhoods held the meeting to generate ideas and emphasize to citizens that their input matters.
“The topic is about Town Center, how you see it. How you want it to be used,” said Trisha Thompson, with the SSCN, before several leaders offered their take on what should be included in the new downtown Sandy Springs.

Mayor Eva Galambos has said that because the City of Sandy Springs did not receive any qualified responses during the Request for Proposals process, she is focused on the Target site for the new City Hall and the center of downtown revitalization.
Boston-based Goody Clancy has been selected to develop downtown. City Council members approved a master planning contract up to $350,000, with the firm. Goody Clancy completed master plans or downtown revitalization projects in several cities, such as Norfolk, Va., New Orleans, West Savannah, Chattanooga, and Greenville, S.C.
