Alpharetta will ask the Atlanta Regional Commission to extend a subgrant agreement that will help the city complete a Local Community Improvement Supplemental Study for the South Main Street corridor. The original agreement called for the project to be completed in October. The city is asking to extend that deadline to December.

The ARC awarded Alpharetta $160,000 to complete the study, which requires a 20% match, or $40,000, from the city.

The goal of the study is to develop a plan to improve the South Main Street area including pedestrian, bicycle and transportation options, as well as to add public space. The analysis and recommendations will evaluate the LCI area’s economic and development characteristics. The study will provide a strategy that supports the plan’s recommendations, ensures the proposed plan is realistic and provide guidance for future actions.

The additional two months are necessary to engage the public for feedback on the plan.
