Fulton County Commissioners Agree to Turn Over Former Alpharetta Library Property | Print |

Board votes to donate surplus county property to city officials after opening of new branch

The Fulton County Board of Commissioners voted to donate the former location of the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System’s Alpharetta branch to the government of that city for its future use. The move clears the way for the county to formally turn the property over to the City of Alpharetta by October 1, 2015. 

“This transfer of property from Fulton County to Alpharetta began with the donation of land in the Alpharetta City Center for the new Fulton County library,” says Vice-Chairman Liz Hausmann, District 1 Commissioner. “This will result in a continued public use at 238 Canton Street that will benefit our citizens and represents a strong partnership between the City of Alpharetta and Fulton County.  I look forward to a great new asset for the North Fulton community.”

The Board of Commissioners’ action authorized and approved an Intergovernmental Agreement between the county and City of Alpharetta to transfer the property. 

The property is located at 238 Canton Street in Alpharetta and was vacated by the library system on June 26, 2015.  The new AFPLS branch in Alpharetta City Center opened on July 30, 2015 on property previously donated to Fulton County by the City of Alpharetta in December 2013.
