Garden City’s Town Center area that includes the City Hall serves as the epicenter of local government of Garden City. Located on Dean Forest Road just south of I-16, the design for thew future Town Center earned praise from the Governor of Georgia as a “shining example” for the State of Georgia and won a Georgia Planning Association award for its innovative design.
Garden City established the Town Center in a location that retains the comfort of small town living with the amenities of a larger urban environment. Town Center is located on 25 acres within the City’s first Mixed Use Zoning District, which encourages a livable, sustainable urban environment with a vibrant mix of uses on a walkable pedestrian scale.
The Town Center Master Plan will create a network of well-connected urban streets designed to promote pedestrian connectivity. Some of the major elements of the plan include future park and civic spaces, on-street parking, street trees, brick sidewalks, public art, benches, drinking fountains and bike racks, combined to support a welcoming environment.
When complete, the Town Center will embody walkability and a mix of uses conveniently located to include retail, restaurants, professional offices, residences and open spaces.
