JOHNS CREEK, Ga. —The City of Johns Creek hosted a community kickoff meeting Jan. 28 to discuss plans for a proposed town center.
Technology Park, the 192-acre site that includes the current City Hall, was identified as the front-runner in the comprehensive plan update adopted in 2018.
The area, while not along a major highway, sits near Medlock Bridge Road and McGinnis Ferry Road. Technology Park is also made up of arterial collectors, such as Johns Creek Parkway.
The space is much larger than town centers in nearby cities. Downtown Duluth is 46-acres. Alpharetta’s City Center sits on 26 acres.
Johns Creek currently owns 27 acres of the Technology Park site.
The year ahead holds great promise for Johns Creek
Community Development Director Ben Song said the city will work with private property owners during the process to get the buy-in that’s needed to form a community focal point.
