SNELLVILLE – Residents will have a chance to learn more about the upcoming intersection improvements at highways 78 and 124 and the results of a survey regarding the Towne Center at a Town Hall Meeting Oct. 19.
The meeting will take place from 7-8:30 p.m. at Snellville United Methodist Church, 2428 East Main St.
Scott Shelton of Gresham, Smith and Partners, the design team tapped by the Georgia Department Transportation for the project, will be on hand to discuss how the intersection – known as a Displaced Left Turn – will function and why and how the change will improve traffic flow. Construction is expected to begin next year.
Attendees will also hear the results of a survey which asked residents and city officials to identify the architectural features and use guidelines in the new Towne Center that appeal to them most. The survey was compiled from input at visioning sessions led by the city Urban Redevelopment Agency, resident input collected at a May Town Hall meeting regarding the Towne Center and an online query.
The city is currently in the midst of a revamp of its downtown building regulations in preparation for the creation of a city center with walkable residential and commercial properties.
