Sandy Springs Releases Interim Development Guidelines

The City of Sandy Springs is currently undertaking a comprehensive plan update. This process includes small area studies for the PCID area, Powers Ferry Landings area, North Springs and new station area, and the Roswell Road area.

The City is concerned with the type and quality of development proposed in the plan for areas of the city where density and a walkable transit oriented community are desired.  Because the completion of a new Comprehensive Plan and Small Area Plans are several months away, the City staff has taken the opportunity to create the interim guidelines, which can be viewed below, for development in these areas.

The City would appreciate your review and input on these guidelines.  Please provide your comments prior to July 15.  Comments can be sent directly to Jim Tolbert, Assistant City Manager, at or to Joe Cooley at
