A public input meeting on Sandy Springs new town center area will be held this evening at City Hall.
Goody Clancy consultants, hired by Sandy Springs to create a downtown master plan, will have presentations of preliminary ideas. As with previous community meetings, break-out groups will be held for public feedback.
In August, during a meeting with the Economic Development Advisory Committee, David Dixon and Ben Carlson of Goody Clancy suggested mixed-use developments covering 25 to 40 acres. That would include 600-1,000 housing units. Additionally, 40 to 50 housing units per acre is suggested, costing $1 million-$1.5 million per acre, they said.
The consultants also brought up ideas for private investment in downtown Sandy Springs. See Sandy Springs Sets up Downtown Vision and Criteria for Investment for detailed ideas discussed on parking, Sandy Springs’ own “Canton Street,” and where downtown would actually be.
The meeting will be held at 6 p.m., today, in City Council Chambers, 7840 Roswell Road.
