Hate Alpharetta traffic? It’s time to take action!
Hello friends! It’s been a bit since our last post, sorry for that! Even restaurant bloggers take some time off from time to time.
To kick off 2020, we’re starting on a bit of a different note. As you know, we are forever-long residents of Alpharetta and die-hard loyalists of the City, but it’s come to a point that even we need to address some issues here in our hometown.
Have you noticed that traffic seems worse than it used to be in the morning, at lunchtime, and even at night? Have you noticed that our great parks have stagnated? How about how our pedestrian-friendly downtown area that isn’t always so pedestrian-friendly?
That’s right, the City has been growing by leaps and bounds, and our public infrastructure has not kept pace with the development.
What is to be done? It’s simple, we need to invest in the City before it’s too late. Roads and sidewalks don’t get cheaper, and we’re already behind the curve, so the time to act is now.
Alpharetta’s day time population is roughly double it’s night time population, meaning basically 2x as many people are working in the City during the workweek, coming from neighboring communities, which adds a lot of stress to the local infrastructure.
This upcoming Monday, February 17th at 6:30 PM, the City Council will start their regularly scheduled meeting and on the agenda is to discuss “Bond Projects.”
These aren’t just any projects, these are projects to reshape how the City handles it’s core infrastructure needs. It’s improving roads, sidewalks, crosswalks, parks, everything we love as Citizens of Alpharetta. It’s not a matter of if the changes are needed – they absolutely are – it’s how soon we can implement them.
If you’re sick of sitting in traffic like me, then please join us Monday and telling the City Council the time to act is now.
