About Providence Lake

Providence Lake is located in the newly incorporated city of Milton in Fulton County, off of New Providence Road. The neighborhood is centered around a 14 acre spring fed lake that is available to its residents. Homeowners also enjoy an on-site Clubhouse as well as Pool and Tennis amenities.  

Subdivision Property
  • Providence Lake subdivision consists of 98 lots, which will eventually contain 97 homes (the clubhouse lot will not have a home). Lot "56B" still belongs to the developer, Charlie Simpson. Lots 65, 72, and 73 no longer exist as they were combined with adjacent lots. Lot 100 is not part of the Association.

  • The lake is community property and is about 14 acres in size. The access point (path, gazebo, and dock platform) is via an access easement between lots 66 and 64/65.

  • The clubhouse facility is also community property and is located on about 3.5 acres on lot 55 (although about half of the property is in flood plain).

  • The only other piece of community property is a 1/4 acre piece of land (part of the dam) that used to be part of lot 59 that is separated by the spillway. The dam and the entrances are considered common property for maintenance purposes, but are actually part of homeowner lots (maintenance and landscape easements). The maintenance easement for the dam is along the shared property line of lots 58 and 59.

  • The lake is a flood control lake, but it is exempt from the Georgia Safe Dams Act (does not require routine inspection, etc.).

  • The roads are Fulton County property (public streets). Signs along the street are county signs, but we are responsible for maintenance of the signs with the wooden posts. The culverts and storm sewers are also controlled and maintained by the county.

  • The lots in this subdivision are zoned AG-1 (agricultural).

  • The street lights belong to Cobb EMC. We pay a fee of about $100 per year per fixture for electricity and maintenance.
