The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - - COUNTY BY COUNTY - DAVID IBATA FOR THE AJC

Af­ter two years of cit­i­zen feed­back, sur­veys and pub­lic work­shops, the Johns Creek City Coun­cil has adopted a 2018 Com­pre­hen­sive Plan that will guide de­vel­op­ment in the city over the com­ing decade.

“Adop­tion of the Johns Creek 2018 Com­pre­hen­sive Plan is a ma­jor achieve­ment and rep­re­sents the con­sen­sus of com­mu­nity stake­hold­ers, prop­erty own­ers and elected of­fi­cials for de­vel­op­ment of Johns Creek over the next 10 years,” said Com­mu­nity De­vel­op­ment Direc­tor Sharon Ebert.

The plan iden­ti­fies eight charac- ter ar­eas: Autrey Mill, Johns Creek North, Med­lock, New­town, Ocee, River Es­tates, Shak­erag and Tech Park. The plan will guide and pri­or­i­tize cur­rent and fu­ture projects within each of these ar­eas, of­fi­cials said.

Pri­or­i­tized projects in­clude con­struc­tion of new parks on land ac­quired in 2016 and 2017, us­ing park bond funds; im­prov­ing the ca­pac­ity of cer­tain roads; and study­ing the fea­si­bil­ity of round­abouts and left-turn lanes to im­prove traf­fic flow and in­crease safety at neigh­bor­hood en­trances, of­fi­cials said.
