Alpharetta to address future of North Point area

Alpharetta is launching an eight-month project to update and clarify its vision for what city officials call the North Point Activity Center, a mostly commercial district centered on the North Point Mall shopping center.

“This is an exciting opportunity for Alpharetta residents and property owners to work directly with our team to make the North Point area more inviting, walkable and lively,” said Kathi Cook, Alpharetta’s director of community development.

The study area follows North Point Parkway between Mansell and Haynes Bridge roads and extends across Ga. 400 to the Westside Parkway area.

Area residents and property owners will be invited to three workshops, led by planning consultant Kimley-Horn, this fall and in early 2018, officials said. The aim is to “identify strategy and policy enhancements … and prioritize public investments particularly related to maintaining mobility and enhancing the area’s walk-ability and vitality,” according to a city news release.
