Community Members Help Define Character of Downtown Development through Visual Preference Survey

With a series of broad concepts in place for the Sandy Springs City Center Master Plan, Goody Clancy once again sought the assistance of the Sandy Springs community to help define what the look and character of private development in the Downtown area should be. During a public meeting held last week, community-members took part in a Visual Preference Survey, in which they rated over 100 images of retail, business and residential properties. Once the survey was completed, the participants broke into nine smaller groups and discussed each of the images in detail. The information gathered during the meeting will be used by Goody Clancy in the development of ordinance recommendations for City. Through ordinances, the City will be able to ensure that private developments fit within the scope of the Master Plan.
