From time to time, the City conducts research and publishes plans and studies. These include the Comprehensive Plan and Next Ten Initiative, the Transportation Master Plan, The Livable Cities Initiative, and the City Center Master Plan.
The City's current Transportation Master Plan was adopted in April 2021. The plan identifies transportation needs in the City and develops a program of projects and strategies that improve the safety and operations of the transportation system. The 2021 plan serves as an update to the City's original 2008 plan.
The Strategic Economic Development Plan (SEDP) provides the City of Sandy Springs with an action plan to guide the City’s efforts over the next five years.
A healthy retail environment along with affordable housing in the city's north end is a top priority.
Livable Cities Initiative
The City of Sandy Springs, in conjunction with Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC), commissioned the Roswell Road Corridor LCI Study to revitalize and enhance Roswell Road Corridor as a mixed-use and mixed-income "Main Street" that supports alternative modes of transportation, protects neighborhoods, reflects demographic changes, and lays the foundation for a better quality of life for residents, workers and visitors.
