MILTON, GA., Jan. 5, 2010 - The Atlanta Regional Commission is asking all Milton citizens and business owners to take part in a North Fulton Comprehensive Transportation Plan interactive meeting Jan. 19 at 6 p.m. at Milton City Hall, 13000 Deerfield Parkway, Suite 107E Milton, GA 30004.
The meeting, known as a charette, will last approximately two hours. Citizens are encouraged to bring their ideas about Milton's transportation needs in the context of the North Fulton region.
The purpose of the North Fulton Comprehensive Transportation Plan is to provide the foundation and framework for multi-modal, multi-jurisdictional infrastructure and policy recommendations across the cities of Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Milton, Sandy Springs, Roswell and Mountain Park.
The resulting document, TRIP (Transportation Resources Implementation Program), will guide the accomplishment of this effort. Input from the public and stakeholders will be sought throughout the project schedule.
A key outcome of the program is to identify and reconfirm community visions and priorities. Roadway, transit, bicycle, pedestrian, safety and operational improvements, demand management, freight movement, environmental, land use and market analysis are critical study components.
This event is sponsored by the Atlanta Regional Commission and the City of Milton.
