February 06, 2019

Autrey Mill parking lot and smokehouseMayor Pro Tem Lenny Zaprowski and Council member John Bradberry joined City staff and Autrey Mill Nature Preserve staff in cutting the ribbon of the smokehouse and parking lot project at the nature preserve yesterday.
 
The smokehouse, which is more than 100 years-old, was previously situated on property off Rogers Bridge Road in the Shakerag area of Johns Creek. City staff had the smokehouse moved to Autrey Mill Nature Preserve, where it will be featured as a historical attraction.

The parking lot features a porous flexible grid that will contain 40 parking spots and three handicap parking spots. The parking provides a sufficient radius to accommodate a bus turn-around located adjacent to the Visitors Center.
