The City of Milton Community Development Department will hold meetings Tuesday, July 7, and Tuesday, July 21, at 6 p.m. to update and include the community in the Arnold Mill Road Form-Based Code development.
These public input sessions will be held at the Alpharetta Courthouse in Crabapple.
At these meetings, Caleb Racicot of TSW Planning will lead discussion and public input on the current form-based code draft for the heavily traveled road. All information taken from these meetings will be used to further shape the development code for the corridor reflecting community desires.
“We want to gather community input on the draft Arnold Mill Road Form-Based Code, said Michele McIntosh Ross, principal planner for the City of Milton. “We absolutely want to hear from everyone interested in reviewing the proposed changes to their community.”
Form-based code (FBC) is a zoning overlay that regulates development in a way that demands a consistent architecture style and character for the community. Instead of determining use, FBC concentrates on the physical form and style of a community and organizes land uses in a master concept of transect zones. These design regulations describe: the building types, how the buildings orient to the streets and other public spaces, the street cross sections with landscaping and the size of blocks.
Milton currently has two areas of the city with established FBC: the Crabapple and the Deerfield/Ga. 9 areas.
