ust 22 miles outside of Atlanta, nestled in a beautiful, tranquil suburban setting in northern Fulton County, sits the 6th friendliest city in the nation, Alpharetta, GA. Being the perfect mix between city and suburban life, this bustling community has award-winning schools, some of the world’s largest technology companies and an abundance of dining and recreational activities.

The city has won numerous financial awards, and has been named one of the safest cities in Georgia, according to SafeWise. Residents, business owners and visitors agree there is always an excuse to have a celebration, whether movies at a park, food truck gatherings, parades, art or music festivals, races or holiday gatherings. No matter what time of year, there is some kind of upcoming event that excites the Alpharetta community.

Alpharetta became an official town in 1858 after pioneers settled on what was originally Cherokee Indian land. Where once just a few small buildings stood, including a grocery store, a courthouse and a jail, now a thriving city lives. The 2010 U.S. Census Bureau report revealed Alpharetta as the 6th-fastest growing city in the nation, which is no wonder when you consider the high quality education and the number of businesses choosing to relocate to Alpharetta.

There are also plenty of shopping and dining opportunities, which seem to be expanding at a rapid pace. New developments are constantly popping up around the city, providing residents and visitors with new restaurants, retail shops and entertainment venues. Avalon, since its opening in October 2014, has brought 86 acres of dining, shopping, small businesses and residences to downtown Alpharetta

Known as the “technology city of the south,” Alpharetta has paved its way for high tech companies like McKesson, ADP and Hewlett-Packard to establish regional headquarters within the city. The City of Alpharetta is home to over 708 technology companies resulting in the city’s daytime population exceeding that of residents.

The Hotel at Avalon is being touted as one of North Georgia’s hottest new resort enclave, giving both business executives and leisure travelers the unique opportunity to experience the meaning of graceful, modern Southern hospitality.

The 60,000-foot Topgolf facility has proven to be the recreational fun spot for golf enthusiasts not to mention Regal Cinemas at Avalon and the AMC Theaters at the North Point Mall, where movie-goers can shop, dine, and then lay back in a reclining cushioned seat while they watch the latest films.

The Alpha Loop, is an innovative and efficient way to connect people to activity centers, parks, and jobs by a network of multi-use trails that provides safe alternatives to driving as well as other recreational benefits. These multi-use paths connecting Avalon to Downtown Alpharetta, currently involves two interconnected routes including a three-mile inner loop and a five-mile outer loop that will link Downtown Alpharetta, Avalon, and the Northwinds area located at Haynes Bridge Road and S.R. 400. Alpharetta has acres devoted to walking trails, playgrounds, baseball, soccer and football fields, and even a dog park. There are community gardens, arboretums and swimming pools as well. One of the most popular outdoor choices in Alpharetta is the Big Creek Greenway, which spans about eight miles through beautiful scenery and connects to a mountain biking trail.

lpharetta was incorporated on December 11, 1858. The town was created to become the county seat of the newly formed Milton County. The territory comprising Milton County had once been a part of the Cherokee Nation and beginning in 1831 this area became the southern portion of Cherokee County, one of the largest counties in the state. Cherokee County’s size created a hardship for some of its southern residents who had to travel to Canton, Cherokee County’s seat, to conduct county business, a trip that could take up to four days for the round trip. To accommodate those residents, parts of Cherokee, Cobb, DeKalb, Gwinnett and Forsyth Counties were combined to create Milton County.      On April 12, 1858, the Milton County Inferior Court ordered the purchase of 60 acres from the Manning and Camp families. Twelve and one-half acres were retained for county use and the remaining forty seven and one-half acres were divided into lots and sold to the highest bidders. These lots were used to establish the downtown business district and residences for settlers who were drawn into the new town for commercial or other reasons. Before the year was over construction had started on a new courthouse and jail. The 1860 Federal Census for Alpharetta listed six carpenters, three blacksmiths, two brick masons, two shoemakers, two tailors, two grocers, two hoteliers, two livery stable employees, one ditcher, one doctor, one postmaster, one sheriff, and one constable.

The new government had barely three years to become established before the Civil War began. Milton County sent two representatives to the secession convention in Milledgeville, then the Georgia state capitol. These two men, Jackson Graham and J. C. Street voted against secession but they were in the minority. Soon, five infantry companies were raised locally and soldiers were sent into battle. These troops fought in some of the war’s most deadly engagements including Manassas, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Vicksburg, Chickamauga, and Atlanta. Milton County troops suffered 244 casualties

Alpharetta & Old Milton County History Museum Local historians worked for over four years to open the Alpharetta & Old Milton County History Museum, which includes stories, photos, and memorabilia contributed by many local residents. The Museum was funded by the City of Alpharetta and developed in partnership with the Alpharetta & Old Milton County Historical Society which provided historical research and many of the artifacts on display.   The Alpharetta & Old Milton County History Museum is open Monday – Thursday, 8:30 am to 5:00 pm and Fridays, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Admission is free.  those on the west side of South Main Street and on the west side of Old Roswell Street, were built between 1902 and 1914. During this period the cotton business flourished as did the downtown businesses. But in the 1920s and 1930s the cotton market was destroyed by the boll weevil and the Great Depression. The price of cotton fell from 35 cents per pound in 1919 to 6 cents per pound in 1931. The two banks closed, cotton brokers could no longer offer seed and fertilizer to farmers on credit, and the farmers barely survived. By then Milton County was near bankruptcy. Teachers were forced to take pay cuts, and even then were not paid on time. Roads were in deplorable condition. County employees were underpaid. One local resident, the late Louie Jones, described the situation this way, “Schools during the Depression were nothing but shacks in the fields and not an inch of paved roads to get to them.” So in 1931, Milton County residents voted to become a part of Fulton County, its rich neighbor to the south. The vote was 213 for the move and 59 against. The change took place on January 1, 1932. Soon, a cafeteria, central heat and plumbing were installed at Milton School. Alpharetta’s main street was paved, school bus service was instituted, and pay for county employees was doubled. Farmers shifted to livestock and truck farming in the 1930s and 1940s. The demand for food by U. S. troops during World War II led to the growth of the poultry business in much of North Georgia, including the Alpharetta area. The poultry industry provided local residents with a stable source of income for many years even long after the war ended. Two other developments provided jobs for Alpharettans. The Bell Bomber Plant, now Lockheed, opened in Marietta in1943, and the General Motors Assembly Plant in Doraville began operations in 1947.

Alpharetta’s economy was cotton based for decades. Farmers grew cotton and downtown businesses opened to seed, fertilize, process, sell and ship the product. In 1901, the Webb Guano Warehouse opened for business in the landmark Cotton House building on Milton Avenue. At various times three gins operated in Alpharetta, two in Crabapple, one in Webb and Ocee.

In May of 2018, the City of Alpharetta celebrated the opening of the Alpharetta & Old Milton County History Museum, located inside Alpharetta’s City Hall. The History Museum covers the history of Alpharetta, from its earliest days as Cherokee Indian territory, through its remarkable emergence as one of the nation's most vibrant high tech cities.

In March 1865 the Superior Court reported a cash balance of minus $7.50 in the county treasury. Since there were no funds for education, Milton officials emphasized the importance of Sunday Schools in educating children. By 1871, the Alpharetta Male and Female Academy had opened in a new building located behind the current city hall. The school operated until the end of 1921 when Milton School opened on the property where the academy operated through the end of 1921 until Milton School opened on the property. During the 1890s, primary schools, funded by local citizens, opened in communities throughout the county, Ocee, Warsaw, Hopewell, Crabapple and Summit among them. Junior high schools were built in Birmingham and Newtown.

The opening of Georgia Highway 400 in the 1970s and the growth of the Windward Development in the 1980s drew more residents and businesses to the area. Reasonable home prices, a moderate climate and superior schools made Alpharetta and surrounding communities excellent places to live, work and play.

education: LIVE & THRIVE to the College Board, Fulton has more schools with high SAT performance than any other district in Georgia. Going on the ideology that the main hope of a nation lies in the education of its youth, Alpharetta high schools are doing a lot right when it comes to laying a foundation that fosters a love of learning and a curriculum that teaches students to think. Outstanding teachers, exceptional leadership and governance, a challenging and stimulating curriculum, high test scores, dedication to the arts, competitive athletic programs, a vibrant cocurricular life evidenced by a variety of clubs and organizations, and ample opportunities for community involvement demonstrate why Alpharetta’s educational efforts work hard to take its students onward and upward. Alpharetta recognizes that high quality early childhood programs are not only great for students and their parents, they also serve as great economic stabilizers and equalizers. Good schools bring more residents (and jobs) to the area which helps to increase the availability of taxpayer money to fund community improvements. Alpharetta’s exceptional primary and secondary schools are led by educated, talented, and forward-thinking administrators, teachers and support staff who focus on curriculum diversity and pay much attention to early intervention protocols to foster academic growth from the ground up. All seven of Alpharetta’s or surrounding area middle schools, including Amana Academy, show exemplary test assessment rates. According to GreatSchools, collectively, these middle schools continue to demonstrate a proficiency rate as high as 99% for all core subjects. Based on these stats, ratings and test scores, it is abundantly clear that throughout the school day in Alpharetta, there is a whole lot of learning, thinking, and discovery going on to propagate a student body awesomely prepared to take on life’s challenges long after high school graduation.

Fulton County has 18 high schools. Seven (7) are in Alpharetta or surrounding areas; five (5) of those seven rank among Georgia’s best – as measured by U.S. News & World Report’s STEM test scores and collegereadiness indices. A high school education focused on strong STEM curricula (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) can help teenagers develop problem-solving skills and provide them with a foundation to pursue a number of growing, in-demand careers. Alpharetta’s AP® test performance stats showed high participation rates and excellent scores among students: 68% of Alpharetta high school students took an average of 4 AP® test exams before they graduated. 90% of these students passed the exams affording them the opportunity to earn college credits while in high school and proving their readiness to take on more challenging material after graduation. Across the board, Alpharetta-area high schools continue to earn top grades for a wide range of key educational attributes: √ High test scores √ Rigorous academic curricula √ Dedication to the arts √ Exceptional teaching staff √ Competitive athletic programs √ An abundance of clubs and organizations √ Ample volunteer opportunities Competitive sports programs include: • • • • • • •

education : LIVE & THRIVE Public Schools (within Alpharetta city limits) To view scores for Alpharetta or surrounding area schools, look under Fulton County to find your particular school. All Fulton County schools have changed their testing standards to include the Georgia Milestone Assessment System and other standardized testing programs. To learn more about testing requirements throughout the State of Georgia, please visit www.gadoe.org or http:// www.fultonschools.org/en/divisions/acd/assess/pages/testing.aspx . We have included two additional numbers, a College and Career Ready Performance Index (CCRPI) and a Climate rating. The CCRPI is a comprehensive school improvement, accoutability and communication platform for all educational stakeholders that promote college and career readiness for all Georgia public school students. The second new number is a Climate Star rating. Schools are rated on a 1 to 5 scale on the Georgia School Climate Star ratings with a "1" meaning "unsatisfactory" and "5" being excellent. The ratings are based on such factors as test scores, student discipline, attendance and student, parent and staff surveys. The CCRPI and Climate ratings reported in this edition are based on 11/2019 results. To review each school's Dashboard report, visit www.fultonschools.org/domain/291

Today’s high school students need the skills required to tackle the problems of tomorrow, to be prepared for college and career, and the ability to solve real-world issues. Students need to engage in a collaborative environment that accelerates their learning and supports their personal growth, nurturing their ability to participate in the community with empathy and compassion. Students need role models and mentors that are forward-thinking visionaries and supporters, and a facility that inspires innovation and creativity and is integrated into the learning process. Students need a world class design thinking program of study and a rigorous curriculum that results in projects, portfolios, certifications, and mentorships that show mastery and application of learning in our 21st Century world. Imagine a school that gives students what they need

The Greater North Fulton Chamber created the Talent Coalition to marry business needs with training and education provided by our K-12 and post-secondary institutions, particularly to address the skills gap within the top five most in-demand occupations supporting the health care and technology sectors. This skills gap is the difference between what the US workforce is being trained to do and what job requirements are today. In North Fulton, this imbalance is significant and effects commerce every day.

The most in-demand jobs among our more than 1,400 health services facilities are Registered Nurse, Environmental Services Tech, Nurse Tech/Nurse Assistant, Patient Care Tech and Medical & Clinical Lab Technologists. However, health care jobs are increasingly becoming technology based which affects the

demand for tech positions as well. The most in-demand jobs in technology among our more than 1,000 technology facilities are Software Developer, IT Project Manager, Network Systems Tech, Technical Support Analyst and Information Security Analyst. These jobs alone represent thousands of jobs opportunities within North Fulton. An excellent example and practical application of GNFCC Talent Coalition efforts is workforce information and relevant research which the Chamber provided to help advance the curriculum development of the new North Fulton Innovation Academy STEM campus. When the new campus opens in Fall 2020, offerings for high school students will focus on Engineering, IT and Healthcare reflecting specific business needs in our region. Students will graduate ready to succeed in career paths with community businesses because our quality business partners will continue to be engaged with the Academy featuring authentic learning experiences and mentorship. The Chamber has been promoting business and quality of life in our region for more than 45 years. We are blessed to have an education system that is second to none and post-secondary partners who are engaged in our region. Collaborating together to ensure that our talented children become our pipeline of excellent talent for the future is dependent upon the information gathered from our businesses as they project future growth. The Greater North Fulton Chamber is committed to our Talent Coalition mission to drive focus and change through measurable programs to address the job skills gap in North Fulton and to be the advocate among community business, education and public policy leaders.

There are also dozens of medical centers, including Northside Hospital Alpharetta Medical Campus, which provides quality outpatient services and community programming, the Northside/Alpharetta Cancer Center, and Pediatric Center at Northside/Alpharetta. The city has numerous urgent care centers for minor emergencies when primary care offices are closed.

lpharetta and the Atlanta region expect and deserve greater patient access to quality medical care than ever before. Northside Hospital offers that with renowned physicians and full-service facilities nearby. In August 2019, Northside Hospital merged with Gwinnett Health System. The expanded Northside Hospital system is one of Georgia’s leading health care providers, with five acute-care hospitals in Atlanta, Canton, Cumming, Duluth and Lawrenceville, and more than 250 outpatient locations across the state. More Northside physicians are opening offices in North Fulton, Forsyth, Cherokee and Gwinnett counties to better serve patients closer to home and that aggressive growth is expected to continue. Virtual visits also are now available with many of Northside’s providers.

The Northside Hospital Cancer Institute ranks in the top two among community cancer programs in the nation for newly diagnosed and treated cancer cases. With a convenient location on the Northside/Alpharetta Medical Campus, the Institute provides exceptional cancer treatment to Georgians looking for greater access to expert personalized care (including skin, lung, breast, liver and pancreas, gynecologic, colorectal and prostate cancers). RECOGNIZED FOR EXCEPTIONAL CARDIAC CARE Northside Hospital Cardiovascular Institute has brought together Georgia’s leading cardiologists with the resources and technology of the Northside network. Together, the team has earned quality achievement awards for heart failure, heart attack and stroke care from national accreditation groups. Appointments are available in Braselton, Canton, Cumming, Holly Springs, Lawrenceville, Midtown Atlanta and Sandy Springs.

UNDISPUTED LEADER IN MATERNITY SERVICES Northside is well known and respected for its maternity services, which include a Level-III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). More than 25,000 babies were born at Northside hospitals in 2019. A teambased approach that uses the expertise of obstetricians and gynecologists, certified nurse midwives, pediatricians, nurses, lactation consultants and others means that all babies born at Northside receive the individualized, special care that is expected from the nation’s leader in maternity services.

Hospital Expansion Construction is underway at Emory Johns Creek Hospital for a $61 million expansion project. The hospital will add two new floors to the existing hospital, including 40 beds. The new space will help balance patient demand, improve staff efficiency and streamline care. In maintaining Emory Healthcare’s commitment to sustainability, the building addition will feature natural daylight with large windows, LED lighting and controls, low-emitting interior finishes, and waste and reduction efforts throughout construction.

Tech City of the South, Alpharetta, Dusting Off 2020

By: Geoffrey Smith

gsmith@assurancemortgage.com 770-674-1433

LIVE & THRIVE

or three months in early 2020, the much-envied suburban metropolis that is Alpharetta was turned into a 20-squaremile museum of how to develop an upscale small city. As the cordons are removed, and people are allowed to again play with all the city has to offer, Alpharetta is back to performing as the pre-eminent place to live, work and play in the Metro Atlanta area.

40

alpharetta_2020_final.indd 40

Alpharetta is unique in that it has one of the most diverse makeup of retail, office and residential uses anywhere in the Metro area. It bet big in the early 1990’s on turning Windward Parkway and Old Milton Parkway into office campus highways. And then it won big. It became a retail powerhouse in the mid 1990’s with the addition of North Point Mall. And then doubled-down with the addition of the nationally renowned Avalon, whose success has spread a full mile down Old Milton Parkway and into what is now a thriving downtown district surrounding its city hall. Surrounding all of this is a strong residential base of high-end swimand-tennis, and golf communities. And mixed in-between are highend condos, intown houses and apartments. Because of the strong diversity of uses, Alpharetta is a city with a commercial tax base so strong that it approved one of the most aggressive residential tax exemptions last year, and still has enough money to

develop infrastructure throughout the city. The new infrastructure being built includes amenities that other cities only have the ability to talk about and plan for and include multiple parking decks in its downtown district, extensive sidewalk systems throughout the city and constant upgrades to its recreation and parks systems. These improvements will continue to further improve the quality of life for the residents who live there, the employees who work in the offices there, and the tourists who come to visit there. One such project underway is Alpharetta’s multi-use trail system called the Alpha Loop. This consists of a 3-mile inner loop and a 5-mile outer loop that will link Downtown Alpharetta, Avalon, and the Northwinds area located at Haynes Bridge Road and GA400. It will piggy-back off of the Big Creek Parkway – a multi-use trail that runs from its southern boarder into Roswell, along Big Creek to its northern boarder in Forsyth County.

housing : LIVE & THRIVE The project has already spurred new mixed-use projects being planned by developers who see the trail as something workers and residents will want to be close to. This pandemic has certainly changed a lot in the way companies may be doing business in the future. And many have questioned how strong companies’ appetites for office space and high-end retail will be after this pandemic is over. The good news is that Alpharetta, and really the entire Metro Atlanta area, are poised much better for any major shift in office space use than others. For one, we were at all-time lows for office vacancy heading into the pandemic and developers couldn’t build new office space fast enough. And two, Atlanta has proven itself as one of the best places to locate a business in the country. For the last 10 years, they have been averaging over 60,000 new jobs every year. Even if there is some sort of push from businesses to have more employees work from home, it is highly unlikely you will see massive vacancies in Atlanta office spaces because of it. As such, Alpharetta will continue on its trajectory as one of the most admired cities in the southeast. The city now boasts more than 700 tech companies that call it home. This includes known entities like Microsoft, ADP, LexisNexis, Verizon Wireless and many others. And other lesser known large tech companies like Hi-Rez Studios, an industryleading video game developer. To help entertain all these employees and residents – as well as tourists, it has set itself up as a culinary

destination place. Just in the halfmile between Avalon and the new city-center, there are more than 40 quality restaurants to choose from. Because of the new Hotel Avalon and its adjoining Alpharetta Conference Center, Alpharetta is now also a destination place for conferences. The conference center boasts over 44,000 square feet of flexible event space and 10,000 square feet of exhibit space. And obviously, because of Avalon and the downtown storefronts, it is a high-end retail destination place. Alpharetta’s engine is in high-gear. And rather than resting on its laurels, city leaders are focusing on parts of its city town that had fallen a little behind. With the addition of Avalon and the trend away from large, indoor malls, the city worked with North Point Mall owners to inject

more life into the district. The old Sears store was torn down to make way for apartments and a park. The apartments are adding hundreds of customers within a very short walking distance to the mall. As more and more retail stores look to be in an outdoor atmosphere like Avalon, North Point Mall has converted some of its storefronts into co-working spaces and is transitioning to a place that more caters to the businesses and residents in its immediate area. The city is also working to form a plan for the North Point area that will include new multi-use trails and will in general give that area its own sense-of-place. A failing strip-center just south of the downtown district was completely demolished and is being converted into a more desirable retail and entertainment district that is walkable and vibrant. The Tech City of the South has a wide-range of bells and whistles and is using every single one to its advantage. If you want a place to live, work or play, there are few places in the country that offers the opportunities of Alpharetta.

Is The Big Creek Greenway Complete?

No. Long range plans include connection to the Forsyth County trail system.

What Can You Do To Help?

• Please stay on the trail and stay off the berm that separates the concrete path from the creek.

• Respect other users and types of uses. Bikers: Please watch for darting children! Speed limit is enforced on the trail. • Be a steward of the Big Creek Greenway. Please use the See.Click. Fix. app on your phone to report any damage such as fallen trees. • Financially support Greenway maintenance. Maintaining the linear park costs more than its construction. In addition, the City would like to add more amenities, such as a formal flower garden and a children's play areas. Visit www.alpharetta.ga.us for more information.

bike alpharetta: LIVE & THRIVE Advocating for Safer Paths, Roads and Trails

Bike Alpharetta Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit community organization that began in 2011. Members are local residents and business leaders who generously volunteer their time and talents throughout the year to advocate and to educate for improved cycling infrastructure in Alpharetta. The main focus is to create a safer and more enjoyable environment for people of all abilities to utilize bicycles for an improved lifestyle in our community. With a grant from REI, Bike Alpharetta was able to create and publish City Bike Route Maps for the City of Alpharetta. More than 10,000 printed maps are distributed each year. The grant also provided resources to produce new signage along the city’s only mountain bike trails, Mt. Adams, located on the northern section of the Big Creek Greenway. In 2018, the League of American Bicyclists designated the City of Alpharetta as a bronze-level Bicycle Friendly Community. This recognizes Alpharetta for its investment in infrastructure, education and outreach to better enable and inspire people to ride bicycles, be it for recreation or transportation. Bike Alpharetta is proud to have been part of the BFC process. In 2020, Bike Alpharetta continues to provide feedback to City leaders for bicycle facility improvements, from the Alpha Loop to transportation corridors along Webb Bridge Road, Kimball Bridge Road and Mayfield Road. Members have committed to keeping Cumming Street clean in downtown Alpharetta as part of the Adopt-A-Mile program. Bikes For Kids Alpharetta is the largest community program managed by Bike Alpharetta. Donations of new and gently-used youth bicycles and tricycles are accepted from spring to fall (see the website for details), with generous support from the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety and area bicycle shops. Volunteers with Bike Alpharetta designate ONE DAY in December to clean and repair the donations, turning them into safe and Santa-ready childrens’ gifts for the North Fulton Community Charities holiday program. Since 2007,

more than 3,400 bicycles and tricycles have been repurposed as holiday gifts! Check out the photo galleries on our Bikes For Kids page (bikealpharetta.org). Other events and programs for Bike Alpharetta include Beginner Rides, Senior Spokes rides, Bike at Work Day, Bike to School Day, Ride of Silence, bike valet at Taste of Alpharetta, ZEN Rides from Jekyll Brewing Taproom, and more. Want to learn more or be part of our vibrant cycling community in Alpharetta? Visit the Bike Alpharetta website to see how to make a difference - volunteer, donate or join a meeting.

Bike Alpharetta Advocacy · Bicycling on paths, streets and trails should be safe. · Bicycling infrastructure should enable access to people of all ages and abilities for mobility purposes (recreation, sport, transportation). · Bicycling is an integral part of a multi-modal transportation system. · Bicycling positively transforms our community by offering an option for user mobility, strengthening the economy, improving the environment, and promoting an active, healthy lifestyle. www.bikealpharetta.org Facebook- BikeAlpharetta

In May 1903, Milton County conveyed the Alpharetta Cemetery Lot, now four acres, to Members of the Town Council and their successors. The lot was to be used as a general burial ground under the supervision of the Town of Alpharetta. This is the final resting place for many of the founders of Milton County and the Town of Alpharetta. The earliest recorded burial is that of Susan Camp Garrison, born 1822, died 1861. The cemetery property had previously been owned by Susan’s father, Arthur T. Camp.
