Number of the Month – Density in the 2030 Plan

Around the first of the month I publish the number of the month, a random bit of local trivia.

1,334.3

The number of acres that will be classified as high density residential or mixed use by the 2030 Comprehensive Plan.

In a few weeks the Alpharetta council will take up the proposed comprehensive plan. It will reclassify a lot of land into either high density residential or mixed use. This will represent 7.7% of the total acreage of the city. The existing land use plan has the city at 5.6% high density residential with mixed use not even getting a mention on the list.

Alpharetta’s current council has a history of approving densities up to the maximum allowed, or ten condos per acre. I’ll leave the rest of the math to my readers.
