STREAM RESTORATION PROJECT Impacts Webb Bridge Park Trail Access A small portion of the trail system at Webb Bridge Park is closed to public access while the stream restoration project continues. The section of trail that is closed is approximately .2 miles and is in the wooded area near the stream. The purpose of the closure is to perform stream restoration work. The main trail system is still accessible. City officials hope to complete the project and re-open the trail next week.

Residents of neighborhoods adjacent to the park will continue to use their regular access points to the trail. Construction crews will work dawn to dusk on weekdays and Saturdays to complete the work as quickly and efficiently as possible to minimize the impact on neighbors and park patrons.

For additional information, contact Jill Bazinet or Scott Campbell with the Department of Engineering and Public Works at (678) 297-6200.
PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN ALPHARETTA AND MILTON: On November 5, 2012, the Mayors and City Councils of Alpharetta and Milton entered into a mutually beneficial agreement for the provision of parks and recreation services. The agreement provides a framework for citizens of both cities to register for and participate in either cities' recreation programs before an "open" registration period is offered, and an annual payment tot he City providing the majority of the programming rather than that City's individual residents paying non-resident fees each time they register for a program in the adjoining City. Milton residents pay resident fees for City of Alpharetta Recreation and Parks programs. For more information, email
