Council approves two traffic projects

Written by  Wednesday, 07 May 2014 00:44

  One is for a traffic signal at the intersection of Brampton Avenue and Fair Road that will make it easier to access the Market District where a $14 million expansion is planned.  Council unanimously approved $110,000 in fiscal year 2016 and up to $32,400 in 2017 to reimburse the Hutton Company for the traffic signal installation.


  The other project is for a new intersection on Veterans Memorial Parkway between Northside Drive East and Jones Mill Road to access a $28 million shopping center by Armstrong Development.  Installing the new intersection must be approved by the Georgia Department of Transportation.  Council approved submitting an application for the median cut on the bypass.


  Each of the developments is expected to include a grocery store.  The stores have not been named but one is reportedly for which the public has been asking.


  In a work session that followed the regular meeting, council proposed an amendmen to the city’s alcohol ordinance that would make it easier to deal with problems created by some businesses where alcohol is served.  The action was taken following the pad locking of two night clubs last year where violence resulted in shootings that killed two people…one at each of the clubs.  Another workshop on the issue is planned for next month.  The ordinance could be on the books by July of 2015.
