Improving Traffic Congestion a Major Focus for City
Traffic congestion has been a major issue for metro Atlanta for decades, and the City of Peachtree Corners certainly has its share of congestion problems. Our geographic location is prime for a variety of reasons, and the ease of getting to and from here is one of the best things about living and working in our city.  

City Launches GIS Mapping Service
After months of designing, inputting data and testing, the city's new Geographic Information System (GIS) Mapping Service has now officially launched. 

The interactive GIS Mapping Service is available on a link at the top of the city's website labeled " Maps." The interactive maps may be used in a variety of ways:
  • Confirm an address is located in city limits
  • Locate your voting district
  • Find out if property is located in river corridor
  • Locate your school district
  • Property information, e.g. zoning, voting districts, etc. 
"The interactive mapping system is an incredibly useful tool and educational resource for those seeking information about property in Peachtree Corners," said Brian Johnson, City Manager.

The purpose of the interactive mapping system is to make information on the city easily accessible and usable for citizens and business owners and operators.
The city encourages the public and business community to provide feedback about the new mapping system.

Residential Roofing: FAQs

Q: Why do I need a permit to re-roof my house?
A: Your permit allows the building department to inspect for potential hazards and unsafe construction. By ensuring your project meets the minimum building code standards of safety, the building department can reduce the risk of fire, structural collapse and other issues that might result in costly repairs, injuries and even death. 

Inspections complement the contractor's experience and act as a system of checks and balances that can result in a safer project. Besides it's the law.

Did you know that the average dog produces 3/4 lb. of waste per day.
Here's the Scoop ...

Every time it rains, water runs off the land as stormwater picking up pollutants and debris - including pet waste which all flows untreated into our rivers, lakes and streams.

Stormwater pollution is the biggest threat to our waterways. When you fail to clean up after your pet, it can create a health hazard and damage the environment.

Be the solution to stormwater pollution. Please pick up after your pets every time you take them out. Simply scoop the poop with a plastic bag and toss it in the garbage.
