Sandy Springs To Partner With Fulton Perimeter Community Improvement District On Mount Vernon Highway Improvement Project
SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. (Dec. 21, 2021) — The City of Sandy Springs will partner with the Fulton Perimeter Community Improvement District on the Mount Vernon Highway Corridor Improvement Project.
The City is working on a project to improve the Mount Vernon Highway Corridor from east of the Fulton County Public Library on Mount Vernon Highway to Perimeter Center West.
The project is being undertaken as Project TS-192, a Transportation Local Option Sales Tax (TSPLOST) funded project. The scope of the project includes adding a roadway lane within portions of the corridor, sidewalk, side path and associated improvements.
“We are excited to partner with the Fulton Perimeter CID on this important project,” said Mayor Rusty Paul. “Transportation improvement projects are a key priority for the City and the CID is uniquely positioned to facilitate and expedite the implementation of this joint project.”
Key elements of the joint project between Sandy Springs and the CID include the eastern end from Barfield Road to Perimeter Center West with intersection improvements at Barfield Road, Crestline and Peachtree-Dunwoody Road, and a bicycle/pedestrian side path on the south side of Mount Vernon Highway. The CID will assist with $2,850,000 in project funding for portions of the project within the CID.
“The Fulton PCID Board of Directors is pleased to make this $2,850,000 investment in the City of Sandy Springs’ project,” said Perimeter Community Improvement Districts Executive Director Ann Hanlon. “This trail along Mount Vernon Road will provide those who work in the Perimeter market with a safe pedestrian connection to City Springs on Roswell Road. The city will manage all aspects of the project and the CID will be a funding contributor only. We look forward to a successful partnership.”
