The Woodstock City Council is expected to discuss moving forward with the fourth phase to widen Ridgewalk Parkway.
The council will discuss the project during its work session tonight at 7 p.m. at the Chambers at City Center.
The road was widened between the Outlet Shoppes at Atlanta entrance to Ridge Trail. Phase four of the project would widen the road between Ridge Trail and Main Street.
Northpoint Ministries, the company behind Watermarke Church under construction along Ridgewalk Parkway, has agreed to donate towards the cost of the widening project. That agreement stemmed from a 2008 condition of zoning that was placed on that parcel when a previous developer wanted to build an apartment complex on the land.
The council will also hold a public hearing for its 2013 millage rate, which is currently at 7.889 mills.
If the rate holds at 7.889 mills, a homeowner whose house is valued at $160,000, with the standard $5,000 exemption, would pay around $482 in city property taxes.
Chief Financial Officer Robert Porche noted that while the city lost about $5 million in assessed value of its 2013 digest, he does not expect to impact the council's decision to leave the rate in place.
The rate will be adopted during the council's Aug. 26 meeting, which will start at 7 p.m.
