Land Under Power Lines for Park! –
The City made its first land purchase for park space this summer. Spending $640,000 for 4 acres on Morton Rd. Part of the land was owned by GA Power.
High Powered Transmission Lines traverse through the area. As Johns Creek grows, so does its power consumption and more lines could be added in the future.
The City had the option to lease the land for $1/year for 50 years but opted to own it outright, even though it was highly unlikely to ever be developed.
A roundabout is being constructed on Bell & Boles Rd. A small pocket park is to be adjacent to the intersection.
It is unknown when both pocket parks will be ready for use.
