Fulton County Green Space Bonds
Ballot referenda pass in Milton & Johns Creek
Two ballot referenda in Fulton County for land conservation were successful after the votes were counted on Election Day on November 8, 2016. Residents of Johns Creek and Milton both overwhelmingly supported bond packages totaling $65 million for land conservation and greenspace in their communities.
In Johns Creek, the Parks & Green Space Bond will create new parks & trails, provide for the improvement of existing parks and protect land along the Chattahoochee River.
In Milton, the Conservation Land, Wildlife Habitat, Natural Area and Trail Bond will protect water quality in local rivers and streams, provide recreational trails for walking, biking and horseback riding, protect natural areas for wildlife habitat, preserve agricultural land, and create and improve parks.
The funds in both communities can only be used for the purposes stated in the referenda and city resolutions.
These measures were publicly supported by a partnership of The Georgia Conservancy, The Trust for Public Land, Land Trust Alliance and The Nature Conservancy in Georgia.
