letter from THE MAYOR
ou may know Alpharetta. But, did you know that Alpharetta is the hope of Georgia? There are not too many states more populous than Georgia. Our State ranks 8th among the 50, hosting over 10 million souls. Of those 10 million, 55% grew up outside the Peach State. It is, no doubt, a credit to the opportunity, climate, and jobs readily available here. But, to whom will Georgia be home? Will Georgia be loved? Will the members of this 55% plant roots? Or, will they pine for the land of their childhood or the next better opportunity? Honestly, I do not know. What I do know is that the potential and long-term success of Georgia depend on the answers to these questions. A strong state cannot exist without love of place; a personal connection to the ground we call home.
David Belle Isle, Mayor of Alpharetta
A 6th generation Georgian, I find my hope in this dilemma within the story of Alpharetta. In Alpharetta, nearly all of our residents grew up somewhere else. We grew from 3,000 people to over 65,000 in under 30 years. Five years ago, we started with food trucks and special events. We built and re-imagined our downtown. We created an environment that David Belle Isle, Mayor of Alpharetta has become the epicenter of over 900 technology companies. We leveraged our strengths and became the Technology City of the South. Avalon, a conference center, an innovation center, a technical college are all recent additions to our city. And, our Citizens have become invested and connected to their Alpharetta. Affection has been found, formed, and organically grown. Of course, we are not without points of pride. In 2016, Inc. Magazine named Alpharetta one the 10 surprising technology startup hubs in the country. DataFox listed us as one of the top 12 cities in the U.S. for technology. Wallet Hub named Alpharetta the best small city in Georgia, and Niche.com named us among the top two Atlanta suburbs. As a staff, our departments have been rated as among the best, and in some cases the very best, in Georgia. Likewise, we are not without new accomplishments either. This year, Phase 2 of Avalon will be complete. We have a new Southeast headquarters for Microsoft. We witnessed a ground breaking for a new conference center, and we began work on a new trail system to connect Downtown to Avalon to Haynes Bridge and back to Downtown. For now, we are calling this park the “loop,” but the beautiful purpose is to connect the people to the stuff. Going forward, we have a lot more to do. The Citizens of Alpharetta approved bonds to improve our parks and roads, and we are actively putting those dollars to work. Several of the new parks are already under contract. Fulton County voters approved the T-SPLOST, and we will be investing over $60 million in Alpharetta to improve travel times in and through the city. Yet, the most important progress of 2016 will never show up in a periodical, a list, or a ground-breaking ceremony. It cannot be easily measured, if at all. Rather, it is experienced. It is witnessed. Residents and families are growing more and more attached to their city; their Alpharetta. In December, I saw hundreds of families standing outside in the cold and rain to see the annual lighting of Alpharetta’s Christmas Tree. It’s their tradition, and they weren’t going to miss it on the mere account of cold wet weather. This past year, we also saw residents spring into action over the future of a parking lot and their Food Truck Ally. It’s affinity. It’s affection. It’s awesome. And, it is through this affection and affinity we have become Alpharetta, the hope of Georgia. Sincerely,
David Belle Isle Mayor of Alpharetta, Georgia

That’s not the only new development Alpharetta has recently unveiled — just down the street from the Avalon is the newly developed Alpharetta City Center, which includes city hall, the county library, town green and city park. Phase II of Alpharetta City Center has begun and will develop the retail, office and residence elements of the site in the heart of Downtown Alpharetta. The development will be configured to encourage successful streetlevel retail, service, and restaurant uses that will enhance and expand the quality of businesses in Downtown Alpharetta.
"The very grit and soul of a city is its Downtown," said Mayor David Bell Isle.
"It's the image that pops in our minds when we think of a place; where we envision ourselves there. The Alpharetta City Center will be the cornerstone of a 600-acre walkable downtown, connected in part by the Alpha Loop, our new path and trail network. This project will expand our Downtown by four blocks." Mayor Belle Isle further emphasized, "We could not be more pleased with the extraordinary efforts this development team has made to design a living, breathing core for shopping, dining, living and working."

The City Center
The private development for Alpharetta City Center is spread over five city blocks along South Main Street and will house 105,000 square feet of restaurants and retail shops, greenspaces, and gardens, 36,000 square feet of office space, and 168 luxury rental units on five city blocks along Main Street. Restaurants, shops, and the office building will open from fall 2017 through mid-year 2018, and the apartments will open in fall of 2018. “Unlike mainstream commercial developments, we are building a downtown district, and our goal is to fit seamlessly into the existing environment which was built in the 19th and early 20th centuries,” said Cheri Morris, president of Morris & Fellows, one of the companies involved in MMS Partners. “In that era, each building was built for a different purpose by a different owner-occupant at a different time, so a city block was made up of buildings that varied in design style, size, height, and materials.”
These developments will combine with public parks, City Hall, the library, an existing public parking deck, and single-family homes that are currently under construction to form a 26-acre mixed use project that has already attracted public interest and business investment to Downtown Alpharetta. In 2011, the City of Alpharetta unveiled a plan for the redevelopment of property holdings it had been assembling for over a decade in the heart of Downtown, with the intent of creating a city center as a gathering place for citizens and an attractive setting for businesses. Construction of the public-sector facilities began in April of 2013, and in 2014 the City issued an RFP for a private partner to develop a mixed-use project within its land holdings. The new public sector facilities were completed in 2015 and the City awarded the private sector project, creating a public/ private partnership between The City of Alpharetta and MMS Partners, a group comprised of Morris & Fellows, MidCity Real Estate Partners, South City Partners and Hedgewood Homes.

Alpharetta is quickly developing a reputation for being a center of technology innovation. Alpharetta’s technology industry ranges from global technology companies with thousands of employees, to a video game company that employs hundreds of game designers to develop online games enjoyed by users all over the world, to a small business with less than five employees that is a leader in the technology of augmented reality, all within blocks of each other. To assist the growth of the technology industry in Alpharetta, local organizations have emerged to provide technology entrepreneurs with opportunities to help them take their ideas and transform them into successful businesses. The ATC and GATN are two of those organizations.
The Alpharetta Technology Commission (ATC), the first organization of its kind in Georgia, is a nonprofit established in 2012 by the City of Alpharetta. Comprised of Alpharetta’s leading technology companies, both large and small, the Commission
is charged with indentifying and pursuing key investment opportunities for Alpharetta’s flourishing technology industry. The four pillars of the ATC are: Growth – to support innovation and startups; Build – to help develop advanced infrastructure to support the next generation of technology; Engage – to help develop relationships among Alpharetta technology companies that fosters community, collaboration and innovation; and Brand – which creates the messaging to help attract new businesses to the Alpharetta area. The ATC has run a technology startup innovation center in Alpharetta since 2015 called the ATC Innovation Center (AIC). The AIC, which is located at 2972 Webb Bridge Road in Alpharetta, has 8800 square feet of interior working space and offers office, meeting and co-working space for tech start-ups, as well as educational programs, meeting and events designed to support tech start-ups. In addition to an onsite venture capital firm, Eleven Eleven Investments, there are currently 38 leading-edge technology start-ups working at the AIC. These companies are working on all aspects of the technology industry which include: biotech, cyber security, artificial intelligence, IOT, augmented reality, edtech, film and video tech, manufacturing, data analytics, media workflow and transportation software startups. A number of technology companies that began in the AIC have now successfully graduated to larger office space in Alpharetta, and the ATC looks forward to continuing to support and grow Alpharetta’s innovation ecosystem through the AIC and other ATC initiatives.

11-11 Ventures is an early stage venture capital company specializing in investing in early stage emerging technology companies that create software for the Fourth Industry Revolution. Arul Murugan says that fourth industrial revolution is fundamentally different from previous one and this time we are seeing fusion of technologies that is blurring physical, digital and biological worlds. We are moving to an era of intelligence that could augment human intelligence. Arul came from a manufacturing background and started the technology company ENRICH in 2003. After selling Enrich in 2016, Arul wanted to be a part of the next wave of innovation and chose Alpharetta (Technology hub of the south) as the place where he believed would give him the best opportunity. Arul started 11-11 Ventures because he saw that while Alpharetta was teeming with technology companies and individuals, the one thing that was lacking was investment dollars for this next wave of innovators to bring their ideas to realty. “Most of the venture capitalists were in Midtown and Buckhead and I saw a great opportunity in Alpharetta to help these technology entrepreneurs take their designs to the next level.” While most of the traditional venture capital firms got capital come from institutions and did not allow easy access for individual investors, 1111 Ventures allows for technology executives and individual investors to invest more modest amounts of money and be involved in the success journey with startup companies. Alpharetta has many technology executives who are interested in investing in the next wave of innovation. While 11-11 Ventures invests in startup companies across the nation, they happen to have the first look at all great Alpharetta-based startup

rom the North Georgia Mountains to the Chattahoochee River along a Cherokee Indian trail, a tiny village named New Prospect Camp Ground was formed. This village, made up of tents, a log school, and arbor became a trading post where Indians and white settlers exchanged their goods. The surrounding countryside provided excellent farming land, especially for cotton. On December 11, 1858, the town was chartered and became the county seat of Milton County. In 1932, Milton County was merged into Fulton County.
the Union Army passed through Milton County, the original Courthouse was burned. In fairness, it was never established whether it was burned by the Union Troops or by retreating Confederate soldiers. In any case, one enterprising citizen, a Dr. O. P. Skeleton salvaged many of the court documents and carried them to a hiding place in Jackson County and promptly billed the City $30.00 for "services rendered". Later, the City paid O.P.’s friend, John Webb, $60.00 to bring them back.
Alpharetta and Milton County can trace their history to the time of the resettlement of the Cherokee Indian Nation in the 1830’s. First, drawn by the promise of free Indian lands, a few somewhat itinerant settlers moved into the area. These first pioneers were soon followed by permanent farmers and merchants who were the fortunate winners of the land lotteries of the early 1830’s.
As the Civil War drew to a close, Alpharetta, along with the rest of the South, suffered a period of economic hardship. These "hard times" tended to draw folks together and a sense of community identity began to grow. But, as hard as these times were, Milton County faired better than many areas. Since the area was populated primarily by small farms and merchants, the collapse of the "Plantation" economy had nowhere near the impact as in other communities.
The first permanent landmark in the area was the New Prospect Campground, often referred to as the "Methodist Camp Ground". This campground was located next to a natural spring just north of the present "downtown" section of Alpharetta. A "Camp Meeting" in that era was the social and cultural highlight of the year for the families living on isolated farms with few travel options. The year was 1858 when Alpharetta can date as its birth as a town. On December 11th of that year, Alpharetta was legally chartered. Prior to July of that year, the town was known as the "Town of Milton". The original town charter provided that the City could pass a tax on every grocery store, retailing liquor store, hallway and billiard table of not more than $25.00 per year. Another provision of that charter was the right to levy a tax of $25.00 on every show that may be exhibited within the City. The first report of the City Trustees showed a balance of $1,302.00 for fiscal year 1859. A courthouse and jail were soon constructed, and with building costs being what they were, the final bill for the completed facility was $2,400.00. This building served as a landmark for the city limits.
In the next decades, growth in Milton County was steady, but never spectacular. The area was hampered by the lack of a railroad, around which most growth in those times was centered. The nearest railroad deadended at the river in Roswell. It is ironic that in those times a railroad was so important, but today the absence of a noisy and dangerous railroad track is considered desirable for community development. When the depression of the early 1930’s devastated the nation’s economy, Milton County found itself near bankruptcy. In order to save the area from disaster, it was decided that a merger of Milton County with Fulton County would be to everyone’s advantage. It was because of this merger that the first roads began to be paved. Until that time, the only paved roads in the area were State Highway 19 (now Highway 9) and 120 (now Old Milton Parkway). Today, Alpharetta is one of the fastest growing communities in the South. Its environment is considered ideal for raising families and living a quality lifestyle free from the problems found in so many similar sized cities. Editor's Note: Based upon original research by Anne Rogers Ferguson.
By the time of the Civil War, Alpharetta had grown to a fair sized town with three hotels, several mercantile shops, numerous churches and a school. The farms around the area were for the most part small family farms and the majority of the farmers were not slave owners. In 1863, an epidemic of smallpox spread through town. In one instance, 16 cases of the disease were recorded in two families alone. Guards were hired to keep people from leaving their quarantine and thereby spreading the sickness further. Many of these early records are incomplete because as the left flank of

WORKFORCE Every business on the planet, from Mom & Pop stores to Fortune 500 companies, is only as good as its employees. And in Alpharetta, we’re proud to be home to some of the smartest minds in the world of tech. 62.7 percent of Alpharetta’s residents own a bachelor’s degree or higher, which is nearly 35 percent above the national average for young adults. And there are plenty of them, too.

Many educators and influential leaders advocate that true excellence in schools is measured by what students do with their lives after they graduate. On that note, Alpharetta and surrounding area high schools are on the right track. In a 2015 education ranking issue published by U.S. News & World Report, 5 out of 7 Alpharetta or surrounding area high schools made the top 20 list of the best high schools in Georgia, and earned a place among the top 500 high schools in the nation. This is pretty impressive given that the U.S. News rankings include data on more than 21,000 public high schools in 50 states and the District of Columbia. Schools were awarded gold, silver or bronze medals based on their performance on state Math and English assessments as well as how well they prepare students for college.
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.

What is the Georgia Milestones Assessment System? The Georgia Milestones Assessment System is a comprehensive assessment system spanning grades 3 through high school. Georgia Milestones measures how well students have learned the knowledge and skills outlined in the state-adopted content standards in English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Students in grades 3 through 8 will take the Endof-Grade (EOG) measures in each content area, while high school students will take the appropriate End-of-Course (EOC) measure for the ten identified courses.
Why did Georgia change assessments? Georgia changed assessments because the former testing programs were in existence for over a decade and no longer met the needs of students, parents, schools, and districts. Georgia Milestones replaced each of the following individual tests: the Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests (CRCT), End of Course Tests (EOCT), and the Georgia Writing Assessments. Georgia Milestones reduces the number of state-mandated tests students take as a result. Further, Georgia Milestones includes open-ended test items in addition to multiple choice items allowing students to demonstrate more clearly what they know. The system also allows Georgia to send a signal of college and career readiness for each of our students.
What are some key differences between previous state tests and Georgia Milestones assessments?

The inclusion of open-ended test items in English Language Arts and Mathematics allowing students to explain their answers is a significant change for Georgia. These items, including the assessment of writing as part of the English Language Arts tests, provide students the opportunity to demonstrate the depth of their understanding relative to the standards being assessed. Georgia Milestones contains four Achievement Levels rather than just three as was the case with the previous CRCT, EOCT, and Writing Assessments. This allows students, parents, and schools to have a more precise indication of student achievement.
What are the achievement levels for Georgia Milestones?

(continued on page 34)
Scores from Georgia Milestones cannot, and should not, be compared to those provided by Georgia’s previous tests. Georgia Milestones will reflect four Achievement Levels rather than just three and will also provide English Language Arts scores that include information about reading, writing, and language skills rather than separate scores in those areas as was the case in the past. In short, scores from Georgia Milestones are different from those provided for the CRCT and EOCT.

Georgia’s commitment to providing a truer picture of student achievement was a paramount consideration in the development of the new assessment. Georgia Milestones provides a more accurate view of where we are as a state and where we need to focus our attention to ensure all students are successful and can compete with their peers from across our nation.

According to Timothy J. Bartik, an American economist/ author who specializes in regional economics, and a senior economist at the W.E. Upjohn Institute for Employment Research in Kalamazoo, Michigan, “Investing in early childhood education is not just good for the children involved — but for communities as a whole. Early childhood education can bring more and better jobs to a state and can thereby promote higher per-capita earnings for the state’s residents.” Alpharetta’s early education programs exemplify the city’s investment in its future.
KINGS RIDGE PRIVATE SCHOOL Did you know that many of today’s students who start college do not complete a degree?
“Getting it done in the weight room prepares me to be a leader on the field. It’s a great life lesson. Hard work, dedication and knowing my strengths help prepare me to handle whatever comes my way.” JOSH CARTER

King’s Ridge Christian School prepares students with strong college prep academics and a focus on equipping them to become self-aware leaders, self-directed learners, and self-confident servants. The King’s Ridge experience empowers students to understand who they are by recognizing their God-given talents. They then leverage those in collaborative environments by engaging in relevant learning experiences. Students connect in the community through meaningful service opportunities and stretch themselves in global experiences. As a PreK-12th grade multi-denominational Christian school, students are involved in a school family with opportunities for leadership development, mentoring, athletics, fine arts and technology-driven experiences. What do most newly enrolled King’s Ridge families say? “We wish we would have enrolled sooner!”
EDUCATION Fulton County Annouces STEM-focused High School Campus on Old Milton High School Site
y the year 2022, high school students in Alpharetta and surrounding areas could opt to attend one of two Fulton County STEM-focused campuses slated to be built at the Old Milton High School site, located in downtown Alpharetta. This highly-touted STEM campus is the top construction priority for the Fulton County School System as it finalizes the 2017-2022 Capital Plan. The Georgia Department of Education is dedicated to preparing students for 21st Century workplace careers by providing high quality educational opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. In Georgia, STEM education is defined as an integrated curriculum (as opposed to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics taught in isolation) that is driven by problem solving, discovery, exploratory project/problem-based learning, and studentcentered development of ideas and solutions. The saturation of technology in most fields means that all students – not just those who plan to pursue a STEM profession – will require a solid foundation in STEM to be productive members of the workforce. This high school alternative focuses on science, technology, engineering and math that will lead students on a career pathway to high-demand, high-paying jobs in information technology, health care sciences and engineering. During a presentation to the Fulton County Board of Education, Yalanda Bell, executive director of Career and Technical Education, outlined the need for STEM-focused schools, and the research that went into the conceptual plan for the curriculum.
The focus was on three aspects for success: partnerships with business and industry, workforce trends data and student interest. To nail down the fields where demand for workers is high and supply is low, the North Fulton Chamber of Commerce assisted in providing workforce trends in Fulton County. The data shows the county has robust opportunities in health care sciences, primarily nursing, engineering and information technology.
The STEM-focused campuses will provide students a curriculum allowing students to transition directly into the workforce, receive industry certification credentials, and/or obtain college credit while still in high school. Students will take all required core academic courses while participating in the STEM curriculum. Courses will include biotechnology, nursing, pre-med, megatronics, robotics, information technology, networking and computer programming. The concept of STEM-focused campuses garnered unanimous support from the board, which has been pushing for school choice options for years. For years, the state has pushed a college prep curriculum which did not fit the vast numbers of students who graduate from high school and go straight to work. For school board member Katie Reeves of Alpharetta, the Milton STEM school would help alleviate overcrowding at other area high schools, many of which are bursting at the seams. “Our high schools continue to attract families who want to have their children in high-performing high schools,” said Reeves. “I am very concerned about the stress on our high school capacity and I will be very anxious to find out how soon we are able to break ground onthe STEM campus.” The STEM-focused campuses will provide students a curriculum allowing students to transition directly into the workforce, receive industry certification credentials, and/or obtain college credit while still in high school.

The goal, Bell noted, was to offer students a “relevant and applicable curriculum so that they leave our district with college and work-ready skills they can instantly use.”
“It was amazing how many students were actually interested in health care science and engineering as a part of the STEM concept,” said Bell. “While we know there is a workforce shortage in technology and health care, we also know our students are especially interested in [these fields].”

Northside Hospital/ Alpharetta Medical Campus
orthside Hospital is one of the most respected health care organizations in the Southeast and has a decades-long commitment to balancing clinical excellence with compassionate care. That commitment holds true today.
Leading-Edge Newborn and Cancer Care Northside leads the U.S. in newborn deliveries, diagnoses and treats the most cancer cases in Georgia, and is among the state’s top providers of surgical services. More than 2,500 physicians and 15,000 employees serve 2.5 million patient visits each year. Northside is experiencing tremendous growth. Expansion and construction projects are underway or in design phase at several of Northside’s campuses. The goal? To provide greater patient access to quality medical care. In North Fulton, residents have access to a wide array of services at Northside Hospital Atlanta, Northside Hospital Forsyth, Northside Hospital Cherokee, the Northside/Alpharetta Medical Campus and many other outpatient facilities nearby.
Northside Hospital-Forsyth Expansion
The New Northside Hospital - Cherokee
Northside Hospital-Forsyth has undergone near-continuous expansion since Northside purchased the hospital in 2002. In 2016, Northside Hospital Forsyth opened a new Surgical Care Center, offering two dedicated, women-only GYN and breast care operating rooms for patient privacy and comfort. It also added three additional floors to accommodate surgical and oncology patient needs, bringing the hospital’s inpatient bed count to 247. The hospital now stands at eight floors, making it the tallest building in Forsyth County.
In nearby Cherokee County, the new Northside Hospital Cherokee is on schedule to open May 6, 2017. Drivers along I-575 in Canton can see the spectacular main building rising on a beautiful hilltop. This health care campus includes the hospital and a medical office building, a distinctive women’s center, cancer center, and 1,500 parking spaces.
In December, Northside filed a request with the state to convert 37 existing 23-hour observation beds at Northside Hospital Forsyth to medical/ surgical beds, increasing the hospital’s total inpatient bed count to 284 when the project is complete. These latest expansion plans are in response to the state’s indication that these beds are needed for Northside Hospital Forsyth to meet patient demand in 2021. Additional plans include the expansion and renovation of the hospital’s cafeteria and dining room, and the construction of a fifth medical office building on the hospital campus, expected to open in early 2018.
Other major health projects are underway that will add even more health care quality, access and diversification. Look for Northside to grow in Roswell, Woodstock, Sandy Springs, East Cobb and Midtown Atlanta.
Building Community Partnerships Northside is proud to have developed strong community relationships with some of Georgia’s leading athletic organizations to promote health, fitness and community involvement throughout the state. Northside is partnering with the Atlanta Braves in their new home at SunTrust Park and is a major sponsor of the Atlanta Track Club, including the 2017 AJC Peachtree Road Race. Northside also is partnering with the Bicycle Ride Across Georgia (BRAG) as the presenting sponsor of their four rides in 2017.

First House, Dream House, Downsize, Next.

By: Lara Dolan
ne or two generations ago people bought a house, raised a family, paid off their mortgage and lived in the home until they either retired to sunnier climates or could no longer live independently. People stayed in the communities where they were born, close to multiple generations of family and friends. That trend has distinctly evolved for the past 50 years and is evident in the Atlanta Metro area more than perhaps anywhere in the country. Proof? Wander the Alpharetta Food Truck Alley on a Thursday evening in the fall and see caps and t-shirts with the Atlanta Falcons logo… and the New York Giants, Green Bay Packers, Los Angeles Rams, Dallas Cowboys… you get the picture. Our Alpharetta neighbors may bring their birthplace allegiances with them but overwhelmingly it doesn’t take long to call Alpharetta home. 50
The relatively affordable home prices combined with rapid population growth is evident on every corner in Alpharetta as new housing products are coming out of the ground in the forms of apartments, townhomes, mixed-use communities, stately estates, condos in walk-able areas perfect for downsizing, and several new assisted living facilities. Alpharetta has a wealth of housing options for every phase of life and to suit a wide range of tastes and preferences. At present, the median value of a house in Alpharetta is roughly $385,000, with the current median sales price of homes on the market around $425,000. Compared to suburban towns adjacent to other large metropolitan areas such as New ALPHARETTA GUIDEBOOK
York, Los Angeles, Dallas and Chicago, the Atlanta suburbs including Alpharetta are markedly more affordable to first time home buyers as well as those stepping up to their next homes. Mix in the great Alpharetta schools, weather and sense of community and it is no wonder that the population growth here is among the fastest in the country. Alpharetta’s booming technology businesses and low unemployment rate combined with vibrant
shopping, dining and entertainment draw young professionals who will rent or purchase their first homes. Alpharetta’s top schools and parks ensure that as those young professionals marry and have kids they chose to make Alpharetta home for their growing families – prompting purchases of first homes in our safe communities.
The lifestyle and climate of Alpharetta also caters to empty nesters and seniors; offering plenty of options to down-size without compromise. Townhomes (often with elevators), new single-level upscale condominiums and numerous smalllot “lock and leave” communities cater to the sophisticated empty nester or retiree who wants an exceptional home without having to care for a larger property. Should the need ultimately arrive, Alpharetta has many residential options in memory care and assisted living facilities.

BIG CREEK GREENWAY The Big Creek Greenway The Big Creek Greenway in Alpharetta is a concrete trail that covers about eight miles through beautiful green forestry, and runs along Big Creek parallel to North Point Parkway from Windward Parkway at Marconi Drive on the north end to Mansell Road on the south end. Taking a bike ride or stroll on this trail allows you to enjoy the quiet side of Alpharetta and see various animals, like deer, birds and rabbits, from just a few feet away. A soft mulch trail encircles a large wetland between Haynes Bridge Road and Mansell Road. The Greenway is an investment in the future of Alpharetta for citizens to coincide with nature.
What is a Greenway? The Big Creek Greenway is primarily a 12-foot wide concrete path that meanders through the deciduous woods along Big Creek. The greenway offers an ideal setting for walking, jogging, inline roller blading, and biking. Dirt mountain bike trails are located on the east side of the creek 2/5 mile south of Webb Bridge Road.
How Long Is The Big Creek Greenway? Total length of the Big Creek Greenway, from Windward Parkway to Mansell Road, is approximately eight miles.
Where Can The Greenway Be Accessed? Alpharetta YMCA: From Old Milton Parkway, go 1/4 mile north on North Point Parkway to Preston Ridge Road and turn right toward the Ed Isakson/Alpharetta YMCA.
live & thrive
Haynes Bridge Road: From North Point Parkway, go 1/5 mile south on Haynes Bridge Road. A parking lot is on the east/left side of Haynes Bridge Road. North Point Mall: Driving northbound on North Point Parkway halfway between Mansell and Haynes Bridge Roads, find the greenway sign directly across from Haverty's Furniture. Parking is located in a wooded area. Restrooms are available at that location. 800 feet south of this entrance is the North Point Village retail center. Walk behind the shops to the stairway that leads to the wetlands mulch trail. Note: The stairs are not A.D.A. accessible. Kimball Bridge Road: Rock Mill Park, located 1/4 mile southeast of North Point Parkway, has Greenway parking and public restrooms. This area is prone to flood during heavy rains. Marconi Drive: Follow Marconi Drive off of Windward Parkway to reach a small parking area at the northern end of the Greenway.
Is The Big Creek Greenway Complete? No. Long range plans include connection to the Forsyth County trail system.
What Can You Do To Help? • Most importantly, "Use but don't abuse". Please stay on the trail and stay off the berm that separates the concrete path from the creek. • Keep the greenway litter free. Hold your expendables until the first available litter can. • 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. Call (678) 297-6123 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 area. You may send a check (not cash) made payable to City of Alpharetta Recreation and Parks.

A visible cyclist is a much safer cyclist. A white front light and a red rear-facing light (or reflector) are required for nighttime riding. Additional lighting, reflective clothing & accessories are highly recommended. Don't confuse. Let drivers & other cyclists know! Signal with your arm and hand before turning or stopping. Wear a properly fitted helmet! Required for those under 16, strongly recommended for all bicycle riders.

OLD MILTON COURTHOUSE
This was the Courthouse of Milton County at the time it merged with Fulton County (1932). Created in 1857, the county was named for General Homer V. Milton (War of 1812), though some claim it was named for John Milton, first Secretary of State of Georgia.
The six-room Queen Anne-style cottage has heart pine floors and fireplaces with original mantels and tiles. Cotton broker Clifford Pierce Norman, wife Nancy Lee Shell Norman and their three daughters lived there.
James H. and Thomas H. Manning operated the store in a wooden building that burned in 1902. It was replaced by a one-story brick building that later housed the U.S. Post Office, Bates Grocery, Cowart Shoe Shop, Cook Shoe Shop and the Alpharetta Welcome Center. A second story was added in the 1990s.
2 S. Main Street
Marker 2 J.J. WEBB AND SONS 21 N. Main Street
1910 The two-story brick building housed Shirley Brothers store, Milton County Bank, Buren Weatherford Grocery and Bates Grocery. C.P. Brady and Sons purchased it in 1934 and operated a Chevrolet dealership, gasoline station and garage.
Marker 3 FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH OF ALPHARETTA 44 Academy Street
stay & play
c. 1905 In 1903, a group of women who met weekly for prayer and Bible study began collecting offerings. From these collections, the women purchased a sixty by one hundred foot lot and began construction of the First Baptist Church. The project was completed in 1905 and was located on this site.
Marker 4 ALPHARETTA FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH 69 N. Main Street
1834 Methodist circuit riders held camp meetings here in the early 1830s and a meeting house existed as early as 1834. In 1871, Isham Teasley donated land where the brick chapel now stands. A white frame church was there until 1931.
18 Cumming Street
Marker 6 LEWIS-MANNING HOUSE 40 Cumming Street
1895 Colonel Tom Lewis built the five bedroom Queen Anne-style house. Siblings Tom H., James H. and Annie Manning lived there 1905-1953. Alpharetta Mayor Sim Manning and his wife, Sarah, moved there in 1948.
Marker 7 B. F. SHIRLEY HOME 112 Cumming Street
c. 1910 This Queen Anne-style style home built by B.F. Shirley in 1910 used a Sears, Roebuck & Co. house pattern. Features include a nineroom interior, veranda, and exterior stairs leading to the second floor. Renovations have been made, but the original building structure has not been altered. The Alpharetta Woman’s Club purchased the house in 1962 and paid the bank loan with funds from community projects.
Marker 8 NEW PROSPECT CAMPGROUND 116 N. Main Street
