Community Improvement District

CID

Throughout its nine-year life, the Community Improvement District(CID) has made numerous improvements along the Georgia 400 corridor and continues to locate and instigate projects in North Fulton County. The revenue generated from the CID is invested to leverage local, state, and federal funds. This allows the CID to advance infrastructure projects faster than traditional governmental bodies.

Community Improvement District

The CID has approximately 300 commercial property owners who make up its total membership. These members voluntarily assess themselves an additional tax of 3 mills to fund the CID. The CID boundaries follow Georgia 400 from Mansell Road to McGinnis Ferry Road, and include three cities: Alpharetta, Milton, and Roswell. The CID’s decision-making body is its 10-member Board of Directors. Recently, the CID assisted with the completion of Westside Parkway, an alternate route from Georgia 400 for local travelers. The CID invested $789,000 in the completion of that northern stretch of roadway. The completed road opened in April 2012. The CID has also been the catalyst for an extension of Northwinds Parkway. In October 2012, the CID Board of Directors approved a $500,000 expenditure for the design and engineering of that project. The extended roadway is adjacent to the site of the new Gwinnett Tech campus in North Fulton and will open new land for future development. The North Fulton CID is also in the planning stages to re-build the Encore Parkway Bridge, a $10 million construction project, running over Georgia 400 from the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre to North Point Mall. The project is scheduled to begin construction in 2014.
