Two new parks, a trail system, and various roadway and sidewalk improvements are among 10 possible projects the city of Sandy Springs might fund in its fiscal year 2017 budget.
The city likely can’t afford all of the projects on the capital improvement project list, which was included in a first-draft budget presentation delivered at an April 26 City Hall workshop. The final list will be prioritized by ballot-style votes on the list made by Mayor Rusty Paul and City Council members.
The budget will be the subject of further workshops and City Council meetings leading up a June 21 approval.
The possible capital projects for fiscal 2017 include:
Abernathy Greenway park extension, $400,000
Sandy Springs Tennis Center new roof, $260,000
Hammond Park playground resurfacing, $100,000
Crooked Creek Park and trail construction, $200,000
Windsor Meadows Park construction, $200,000
“City Gateway” roadway beautification: north Roswell Road medians and Ga. 400/Northridge Road interchange landscaping: $500,000
Sidewalk installations around the city: $500,000
Various intersection improvements: $500,000
Traffic signal improvements: $750,000
Bike/pedestrian trail plan design and implementation: $500,000
