That area of Alpharetta is indeed walkable. But, it isn't a restaurant/bar district. Most of the eateries are either on GA 9 or off on the side streets. Maybe the new "town square" will change that.

ten foot wide brick sidewalks, street level retail and plenty of trees? what else do you want??

that being said despite the walkability of the area, there's a shortage on buildings in downtown alpharetta. many of them were torn down years ago and there are vacant lots along milton avenue. the streetscape is already there, it just needs programming.

also, even though the centre of downtown has wide sidewalks and accessibility, the connection to the surrounding neighbourhoods and newer townhomes, is **** poor. i live about ~500 feet from downtown but because my neighbourhood is not connected to downtown directly, it's a long hike to get to downtown. that needs to be fixed.

No kidding! Most city of Atlanta residents (60%) commute to work outside the city limits. And the high-paying jobs have been heading toward the northern suburbs for decades.
