The next public meeting in a series of community discussions with city consultants to develop a long-term development plan for downtown Sandy Springs will center on transportation.

Residents and business owners are invited to join the discussion Tuesday, Oct. 30, during a gathering at City Hall, 7840 Roswell Road, Building 500, starting at 6 p.m.

Representatives of city consultant Kimley-Horn are scheduled to present their findings on transportation in the “city center” area, which is bounded roughly by Cromwell Road, Cliftwood Drive, Boylston Drive and Sandy Springs Circle.

Kimley-Horn employees will outline recommendations to enable the city to balance traffic in the area based on the four possible development plans now under consideration by the city, city officials said. Kimley-Horn is working on the project with city consultants Goody Clancy of Boston, who are to propose a master plan for the area. The master plan is scheduled to be adopted by Sandy Springs City Council by the end of the year.
