Crabapple plan implementation meeting March 21.


Residents interested in how the City of Milton is implementing last year’s Crabapple Visioning Study will want to be in attendance March 21 at 6 p.m. when the city discusses its plan for a new zoning district in Crabapple.

This meeting will take place at Alpharetta’s Crabapple Government Center, located at 12625 Broadwell Road in the heart of historic downtown Crabapple.

At this meeting, Milton Community Development Director Kathleen Field will discuss the city’s recent efforts to establish form-based coding and transfer of development rights in Crabapple. These two zoning tools will allow Milton to create a uniform, community-approved aesthetic in the area while protecting the surrounding open spaces from development.

“This work is the logical first step in creating the popular Crabapple Visioning Study completed by Lew Oliver Inc. Wholetown Solutions last year,” said Field. “At this meeting we’ll explain how this new form-based coding zoning district can create the type of idyllic, design-oriented town center residents desire. We’ll also introduce the concept of transfer of development rights, which will allow Crabapple to grow smartly while preserving Milton’s valued agricultural land.”
