Project Description

Flowery Branch On-Call Planning

Details:

Client: City of Flowery Branch

Location: Flowery Branch, Georgia

Status: Current Project

Highlights:

  • On-call planning services that include daily planning activities such as site and architectural reviews

  • Assisting in the preparation of an application to receive GDOT funding for trail projects in the downtown area

Description:

In 2017, TSW was retained by the City of Flowery Branch to fulfill on-call planning services, including site development reviews, architectural reviews, and site design drawings that reflect the City’s long-term goals.

Since initiating work with the City, TSW has since created a list of proposed priority, fiscally-constrained capital improvement projects, including:

  • A downtown park/town green;
  • Farmhouse Park;
  • East Main Street Trail;
  • Mulberry & Spring Street Trails;
  • Gainesville Highway to LIghts Ferry Trail;
  • Gainesville Highway Trail to Farmhouse Park;
  • Jones Road Trail Park Connector; and
  • Streetscape projects on Mitchell Street, Pine Street, and Railroad Avenue.

Currently, TSW is assisting the City to acquire funding for trail projects through GDOT’s Transportation Alternatives Program, a program that funds “non-traditional” transportation projects, like pedestrian facilities, bicycle facilities, and streetscaping projects. If GDOT awards the City with funding, they will receive around $2.7 million to implement a trail network and connections in and around the downtown area.
