  • More than 125 Alpharetta residents voiced their concerns at the virtual City Council meeting on July 13 over the proposed hotel on the Alpharetta-Milton border. An 80-room boutique hotel will also have amenities, meeting and event spaces, as well as a restaurant and rooftop bar and pool. Most of the residents opposed this proposal and cited traffic and the scale of the building as some of the major concerns. The virtual meeting was cut short when it was interrupted by disruptive attendees. The city has promised to address any unanswered questions or concerns. (appenmedia.com)
