The 2 Highland Manors Of Milton Georgia

North of Alpharetta, in the City of Milton, is not just one Highland Manor Neighborhood, but 2. Apparently there is a path that connects the two by foot, but two separate entrances by car.

The Highland Manor that was constructed first is larger than phase 2. The 1st phase is located off of Birmingham Road and has swim and tennis amenities with a total of 51+/- Estate homes.

 Highland Manor Birmingham Road Milton GA Phase I

The second Highland manor is located off of Freemanville Road and is a bit smaller with only 26+/- Estate homes and built after the Highland Manor in phase 1.

Both communities are listed in the Georgia MLS under one subdivision, so the homes for sale will include both neighborhoods.

I have had the pleasure of eating at Cans Taqueria twice now. The first time, not soon after they opened and we ate outside. It was quite busy then and I remember liking the food enough to return, but also remember it was a bit to cold to sit outside.

My second visit was before the early dinner rush just last weekend and we ate inside with our daughter. The atmosphere was wonderful and service very friendly. Speaker Music is good too. Apparently the Tequila Drink varieties that they serve here are one of their specialties, but on this occasion, water for me. Maybe next time, Sangria?

Anyway, the Chicken Quesadillas were the best I have tasted in a while. Finally a chicken that is well flavored when added and the pale green rice is more flavorful than it looks. I would highly recommend the Fajitas since my daughter gets steak Fajitas whenever she can, and she loved CANS Taqueria very much!

You must visit the CANS Taqueria Web Site to see the entree choices they offer and especially their INTERACTIVE Menu! You do not see this everyday!

New Bethany Bend High School In Milton Georgia Names Principal For Opening!

The Fulton County board of education has named
Ed Spurka as the Principal for the new Bethany Bend High School in Milton, Georgia.

Bethany Bend is scheduled to open its doors in August of 2012. Ed Spurka is currently the principal at Roswell High School.
The announcement comes right before the start of the redistricting process, which will create new attendance zones for the area high schools.

Bethany Bend High School Milton Georgia
The school board felt it was important to have a principal in place prior to the redistricting process, especially someone like Mr. Spurka , who is a well known, liked and respected figure in the North Atlanta community. This is sure to excite local parents and students who may be part of the boundary change as Ed Spurka will be a familiar face.

The school board typically looks to veteran principals to open new schools, as it becomes a challenge to pull off the opening of a school, of this size and magnitude. At this time, Ed Spurka is the longest serving principal among area High Schools.

For More About Area North Atlanta Schools

Spurka’s tenure at Roswell High School has been met with great success, as the school has excelled in academics and sports while under his watch, including being listed in Atlanta Magazine as one of the top High School’s in the Metro Atlanta area.

Spurka will be extremely busy over the next couple of months, as he will finish the school year at Roswell High, while at the same time forming a local community committee to help develop the school’s identity, color’s and mascot.

Bethany Bend High School Milton Georgia
On a personal note, I drive by the new Milton High School on a daily basis and it is a mammoth site. They are just finishing up on the foundation and grading. Framing should be going up in the next month. I will keep you posted!

Fulton Schools Zone Planning

New Bethany Bend High School Location-Anxiety And Rumors Abound!

With less than 18 months before the new Bethany Bend High School opens in Milton Georgia, rumors and anxiety over the boundary and attendance lines have started. Fulton School officials are adamant that attendance and boundary lines have not been established and have created a process that will seek community input before coming up with a redistricting proposal.

The Fulton School System has set up and scheduled a series of three meetings where local residents can attend and voice their opinions.

The 3 meetings are planned from 7pm to 9pm at the Alpharetta High School.
-February 23rd
-March 16th
-April 13th

For More Information On Bethany Bend Redistricting

The first meeting will provide the community with board approved criteria that shows how boundary lines are determined. Local Milton residents will take part in small group meetings to voice opinions and provide their input. This information will be used by the planners to develop draft maps which are then presented at the next meeting on March 16th at Alpharetta High School.

At the second meeting, local Milton residents will again be able to voice opinion and input on the maps, and based on input, will present this refined proposal at the third meeting on April 13th at Alpharetta High School.

After these meetings are finished, the Fulton School Board will likely receive the staff recommendation sometime in May with final approval around June or early July, giving parents and students of the Milton area over 1 year of advance notice of the new boundary and attendance lines.

A 2009 Post Written November 13th About Bethany Bend High School Plans and Location

Typically, the school system appoints a principal a year in advance of the opening of the new Milton High School in order to allow the new principal to become involved with the community and its residents to work with each other in creating the naming of the Milton High School, as well as selecting the school’s mascot and team colors, which are critical to the identity and uniqueness of every school.

One interesting policy that has just been updated regards how rising Sophomores, Junior’s and Senior’s can determine whether or not they wish to change Milton, Ga. schools based on the new boundary and attendance line. These students have the option to remain at their current school if they feel moving to the new school will create too much of an emotional burden because of friendships that may not transfer with them based on the new lines.

City of Milton Georgia Terminates Services Contract

The City of Milton Georgia terminates its services contract and will now be run by its own City employee’s.

When Milton Georgia became a city and was formed in 2006, a private management company was brought in to manage the transition and control the day to day functions that are vital of any city bureaucracy. The company, CH2M Hill, out of Denver, Colorado, provided the city staff positions, except public safety, city manager and city council.

The reason for the termination started to take hold when the economy turned downward. The city’s contract called for a lump sum payment of 7 million dollars due each year. Unfortunately, with less revenue due to falling property taxes, the city of Milton was looking to trim the budget.
When the city of Milton tried re-negotiating the contract with C2HM Hill, the company advised that the contract was non-negotiable. Coupled with that, there were automatic escalations for each additional year the city did business with CH2M Hill, to the tune of 8.2 million for the year 2011, with no increase in performance or services by CH2M Hill to the city of Milton.

Miltons total budget was approximately 17 million this year. With the removal of the private management company, Milton is now run by it’s own citizens, who in this author’s opinion, make the finest employee’s. What are your thoughts?
