In Case of Emergency, Can First Responders Easily Find You?



When tragedy strikes and seconds count, it is important that emergency service providers (police, fire and medical) are able to immediately identify the property involved in the emergency. 


The city's Property Maintenance Code requires that homes (and all buildings) have approved address numbers placed where they are legible and easily visible from the street or road fronting the property. 


These numbers shall contrast with their background. Address numbers shall be Arabic numerals or alphabet letters. The code requires that numbers be a minimum of 4 inches (102 mm) high and spaced 0.5 inch (12.7 mm) apart.

Making Room for the Millennials

Peachtree Corners was founded on the concept of locating housing close to jobs, an innovative idea for a time when most housing and jobs were intentionally separated by miles of highways.

The "live near work" model has served the city well over the years and has resulted in quality single-family homes developed within easy access of Technology Park and other business developments.

The Baby Boomers and generations that followed have lead the demand for housing which, for the most part consisted of single-family homes within walking distance of a good school.

However, there is a new generation, the Millennials, (those between the ages of 19 and 30) who are now driving the housing needs of communities across the country. A home near schools is not the preferred housing choice of today's younger, tech savvy employee.
