City moves forward on roundabout in Milton


Buys land at B'ham Hwy, Providence


October 11, 2013
MILTON, Ga. — At their Oct. 7 meeting, Milton Council approved $125,000 for the expansion of the intersection of Birmingham Highway and Providence Road.

The city reached a settlement for the condemnation of 0.430 acres of right of way and 0.296 acres of permanent construction and maintenance easement and 0.019 acres of temporary construction easement from New Providence LLC, in the amount of $125,000.

On Feb. 8, the city declared its intent to take the plot of land for the intersection project. Judgment was entered in the amount of $125,000 as just and adequate compensation in this case.

The intersection is currently a dangerous one, being without a traffic signal and only a stop sign on Providence Road. There is also a hill on Birmingham Highway, reducing sight of oncoming traffic.

The improvements will include realigning the roads and putting in a roundabout.

Also at the meeting, councilmembers unanimously approved an ordinance for the New Cingular Wireless, PCS cell tower located at 13700 Ga. 9, just south of Bethany Bend

The approval included an increase of 10 feet in tower height, thus making the tower reach 185 feet, and a two-part variance consisting of reducing the tower setback from 26 and 20 feet for the eastern and northern property lines, respectively, and a reduction in the required landscape strip from 20 feet to 10 feet.

The existing facility a self-storage business with a tower currently supports four wireless carriers: Sprint, Clearwire, MetroPCS and T-Mobile. SBA Communications owns and manages the facility. AT&T has leased a portion of the site from SBA for the colocation of antennas on the tower structure and the location of accessory ground equipment.
