The city of Sandy Springs has opened a web survey at to gather residents’ opinions on the kind of shops they’d like to see in the future City Center.

“Shaping our downtown is a community endeavor, and as such, we want – and need – input,” said Sandy Springs Mayor Rusty Paul in a press release. “City Center not only defines our downtown, it plays a major role in transforming the Roswell Road corridor.”

Community feedback will help the planning team target companies to fill retail space in the development.

The master plan includes a walkable grid of streets; a mix of retail and dining; green space and a civic facility. Sandy Springs City Council is also reviewing options to include a performing arts center. The council will be briefed on the project on Aug. 27 at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 7840 Roswell Road. The public is invited, and comment from residents will be allowed.

  1. Wouldn’t it be nice if the green field, currently present where the former Target building was torn down, remained green and open to the public….We have plenty of bricks and cement in the area…wouldn’t it be nice…..

  2. I would like to see a variety of small shops and businesses that would allow a walking/shopping experience which include various venues for: eating,
    drinking, clothing, entertainment, all arts, etc…

    A nice touch would be shops opened after 9:00pm for adults to walk the path and be able to drink wine, beer, etc… within the designated walking areas.
