Update on Public Works Projects in Our City

Since the city incorporated in 2012, we have focused on improving and repairing our city’s roads and intersections, maintaining and adding sidewalks, adding pedestrian safety features and constructing our multi-use trail which will eventually connect residents to restaurants, shops and work.

Some of our ongoing and recently completed Public Works’ projects include: Read More

Town Green Closed
May 9 - 23 for Turf Repairs
The oval grassy area at the Town Green will be closed to all activity for two weeks (May 9 - 23) to repair the turf. The pavilion and children's play areas will remain open.
Street Racing in Peachtree Corners
Street racing is illegal and dangerous. However, GCPD cannot respond to incidents of street racing unless they are reported. If you want police to investigate, and track down the illegal activity, you must contact them directly.

GCPD West Precinct Commander, Maj. Edward Restepo's advice: I would strongly encourage any residents to contact 911 so that we can immediately respond and take the appropriate enforcement action regarding these street-racing incidents.
Remember, if you see something, say something. Call 911.

Thanks to one resident's persistent determination, a small overgrown area off Peachtree Corners Circle is now a place where friends can meet, neighbors can walk their dogs, and everyone can enjoy the beauty of nature.

Long-time resident Lynn Williams was presented with a proclamation at the March City Council meeting in recognition of her efforts in taking a leadership role in the development of a triangular piece of property that had remained unkempt for years.

Projects That Do Not Need a Permit

Most building and remodeling projects require a permit and inspection. But some do not. Check here for a list of projects that don't require a permit or inspection. Read More

Outdoor Storage Regulations

Just a reminder … open or outdoor storage of appliances, building material or debris, equipment, garbage, glass, material, merchandise, rubbish, trash or similar items shall not be permitted, maintained or stored on any premises. 


Here's the Scoop ...
Every time it rains, water runs off the land as stormwater picking up pollutants and debris - including pet waste. Pet waste left on sidewalks, streets, yards or other open areas can be washed away and carried by rainwater into storm drains and drainage ditches which flow to nearby streams, rivers, and lakes.
