City adopts 10-year development plan
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.
