The North Fulton Comprehensive Transportation Plan is undergoing an update, and a public meeting for local input is slated for Sept. 29 at Sandy Springs City Hall.

The North Fulton CTP is a regional plan, addressing all modes of transportation, that includes the cities of Sandy Springs, Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Milton, Mountain Park and Roswell. Its original version from 2010 recommended such major regional projects as extending MARTA’s Red Line northward, as well as such local proposals as widening Hammond Drive.

The update process will take over a year and this is just the first round of public meetings. The Sept. 29 meeting will run 6 to 8 p.m. at City Hall, 7840 Roswell Road, Building 500. For more information, see the North Fulton CTP site here.

  1. To not include Cobb would be a major flaw of any plans. We all use the roads whether it’s SS residents going to anywhere else or Non SS residents coming here or thru here. Ignoring the “thru here” would be a major flaw to any plan.

    Which roads are to be widened has to be a serious consideration. All municipalities are on a growth at all cost plan. The result of that is what where once quiet backroads are no longer such as Long Island, Mt. Paran, Powers Ferry, and for everyone going to work Wieuca to Phipps.

    Light rail has to be a consideration if not a true subway. Those lines have to run east/west as well as north/south especially into communities from communities. This part of the plan will require many to get over the “we don’t want them here” mentality and become part of the global community.

    This will also require Public involvement and the beginning of Mayors and City Councils the region over actually being full time, working to serve the community not what we have now which is individuals working to serve themselves.

    IF the entities involved can get there head out of the sand and wake up to the reality of the world we actually live in there is a chance. However, if they continue to keep legislating with a ‘red line’ for those and them this is all a waste of time and money.
