Town Center Advisory Committee

The City Council identified the development of a Town Center Master Plan as one of the top priorities in 2020. The Tech Park Character Area was identified as the appropriate area for a Town Center in the Comprehensive Plan update adopted in 2018. The Master Plan will review and establish appropriate land use, linear park design, street and multi-modal networks, streetscape, and architectural standards desired by residents, businesses, and property owners to create a vibrant, inviting and experiential Town Center unique to the City of Johns Creek.

The Advisory Committee for the Town Center Master Plan will be composed of 25 members and 2 City Councilmember liaisons, representing a broad range of ages, backgrounds and expertise. The Advisory Committee will function as the sounding board to review and provide feedback to staff at various milestones of developing the Master Plan.

The City of Johns Creek and Department of Community Development staff look forward to working with the selected Advisory Committee to create a Master Plan for the Town Center that will be enjoyed by residents and businesses for many years to come.
