During its Feb. 5 meeting city council members will consider signing off on an $84 million plan to create a city center, a price tag that does not include a civic building where the council could meet.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. and will be held at Council Chambers at Sandy Springs City Hall, 7840 Roswell Road, Building 500.

City leaders first disclosed the first official estimate of what the city center would cost during a retreat held Jan. 30. The city already has $25.6 million budgeted and would need an additional $58 million. The costs, which will be spread out over the next decade, will require the council to set aside $7.5 million a year for the next seven years. There’s a possibility city hall could be constructed with bonds or in partnership with a private investor.
