VOTE

November 8, 2016

The Recreation and Parks Strategic Plan identified the need for the city to connect and grow the existing trail system, including the Rogers Bridge Trail and trails at Autrey Mill Nature Preserve. The city currently has 7.6 miles of walking and nature trails and approximately 9 miles of multi-use trail. With the approved bond, the trail network would continue to expand pedestrian opportunities.

The City of Johns Creek currently has four multi-use trails (for a total of approximately 9 miles) along: Bell Road, Rogers Bridge Road, State Bridge Road, and the Johns Creek Greenway (primarily along Medlock Bridge Road). Johns Creek does not presently have any true “recreational greenways” defined as a trail in a natural corridor outside of a park. The only recreational trail consists of the vacant right-of-way of Rogers Bridge Road, which extends southward from Bell Road to the Chattahoochee River – a distance of 0.88 miles. This 60 foot right-of-way offers the opportunity to develop a recreational greenway that will link to an existing park in Gwinnett County and the historic Rogers Bridge across the Chattahoochee River is reopened for pedestrian use.
