On Sept. 19, master planning firm Goody Clancy presented preliminary site concepts to residents. The planning firm and city staff have focused on mixed-use neighborhoods, new infrastructure that can retain stormwater, creating art spaces, and opportunities for private investment.
The downtown area would likely run along Roswell Road, south from I-285 up to Abernathy Road, including intersections at Hammond Drive, Mount Vernon and Johnson Ferry Roads, and Abernathy at Sandy Springs Circle.
According to city staff, based on feedback from the City Council and community, Goody Clancy will refine the concepts and will present final concepts to the City Council later this year for review and site selection.
