NORTH FULTON CID PROVIDES $789,000 TO CITY OF ALPHARETTA TO HELP FUND NEW SECTION OF WESTSIDE PARKWA
ALPHARETTA, Ga. (Jan. 4, 2012) –The North Fulton Community Improvement District (CID) presented new Alpharetta Mayor David Belle Isle with a check for $789,000 at last night’s City Council meeting (pictured above, credit to Bob Pepalis of Patch.com). The money will help the city acquire the necessary right-of-way to complete a new section of Westside Parkway, just north of Old Milton Parkway.
By spring 2012, Westside Parkway will provide true north-south connectivity from Windward Parkway in Alpharetta to Holcomb Bridge Road in Roswell, thanks to this public-private partnership between the City of Alpharetta and the North Fulton CID.
“We want to help you get the other end of this road open,” said North Fulton CID Executive Director Brandon Beach, presenting the check to Mayor Belle Isle.
The North Fulton CID was founded in 2003 to improve the southern end of Westside Parkway, according to North Fulton CID Chief Operating Officer Ann Hanlon. “Now, nine years later, the CID is able to provide crucial funding and make a profound impact on the north end of Westside Parkway. We see this project as a linchpin to creating a more complete system of roadways in North Fulton. It’s a huge win to get this road finished,” Hanlon said.
