The Johns Creek city council voted to approve conceptual designs on four of the city’s five new parks Monday evening and will move forward with the process of developing construction plans.
Locations for the parks are at Technology Park, on Morton Road, State Bridge Road, and the intersection of Bell and Boles roads. The concept design of the fifth new park at Cauley Creek is still under discussion and the council will make a final decision later.
“The city council’s action represents a big step forward in what is shaping up to be a transformational year in Johns Creek,” Mayor Mike Bodker said in a statement. “The addition of these beautiful green spaces and what each new park will mean to the residents they serve is very exciting.”
The current design concepts for each of the five new parks can viewed at johnscreekga.gov/RecreationandParks/ParksDesign-Project.
The construction of each park will be funded by the Parks Bond, which was passed by residents of Johns Creek on the general election ballot in November 2016. The bond, for an amount up to $40,000,000, will be specifically used for the acquisition and development of parks and green space, as well as improving the current inventory of parks.
