Alpharetta, CID to split landscape costs

The Alpharetta City Council has approved an agreement to split 50-50 with the North Fulton Community Improvement District the $159,410 cost of landscape maintenance at five crossings of Ga. 400.

Alpharetta and the community improvement district have agreed to share the cost of Russell Landscape caring for the landscaping at the Ga. 400 interchanges with Mansell and Haynes Bridge roads and Old Milton and Windward parkways, and at the Encore Parkway overpass of the expressway.

The city will pay the contractor’s invoices, and the CID will oversee the work and reimburse the city, according to the agreement. The city also will be the sponsoring agency and will be responsible for obtaining permits required by external agencies. The three-year agreement has an option to be extended for two additional one-year periods.
