Blue - Household Batteries
Orange - Cellphones
Green - Ink/Print Cartridges

Dropping Anchor in Peachtree Corners

It's not everyday we see a ship's anchor this far inland but Peachtree Corners residents traveling Peachtree Parkway and Spalding Drive have already seen the behemoth piece of cast iron in front of UASC's office.

The anchor was transported by the Georgia Port Authority from Savannah to Peachtree Corners last month. The company plans on having it sanded, primed and painted a dark marine gray color and add landscaping to the surrounding area.

Some fun facts about the city's newest landmark:

Total weigh: 9.5 tons
It measures 16 feet tall by 10 feet wide
The anchor is bolted to a two-foot thick concrete slab.

Looking Good Peachtree Corners


We've heard from a number of residents - and business owners who have noticed how much better the city's intersections, roadways and other public areas are looking these days. We can thank the city's new Public Works Department for its hard work.


The Public Works team began working on the city's streets last November, but we've already seen big improvements. In just the first quarter of 2015 the Public Works Department has responded to 284 cases, and 75 percent of those cases have already been cleared.


Public Works is responsible for 122 miles of city roads; the crew cleans gutters, picks up trash and other debris in right-of-way areas, clears overgrown vegetation and fallen trees, installs traffic speed control devices, makes sidewalk and road repairs, replaces and adds stop signs just to name some of their daily duties.


And during the past winter, crews worked on 24-hour shifts during the threat of freezing roads ready to spread sand to keep our roads safe.


The Public Works Director, Greg Ramsey, along with Jim Price who supervises the 5-man crew, are pro-active in their work. As an example, in February there were 102 cases on the books and 81 of those cases were field generated, meaning the Public Works team saw work that needed to be done and didn't wait for a call to come in to take care of the problem.


Here are just a few recent email comments from residents thanking the Public Works Department:

I want to express my appreciation for the work done on the right-of-way along Jay Bird Alley between Spalding and Peachtree Corners Circle. Mr. Price and his team did an outstanding job. While I did have the opportunity to speak with Mr. Price and the crew, I wanted the City to know their fine work did not go unnoticed.


Peachtree Forest Homeowners Association appreciates the prompt action of your Department in filling the pot holes on Courtside Drive in front of Lifetime Fitness.... Nice job!


Thanks so much for cleaning up our area.  We live in Mechanicsville community off Jones Mill Road and Buford Hwy. and we travel the areas that you have worked on this month.  Things look so good and thanks for all that you are doing to make this a better place to live.


I do not live in Peachtree Corners. I live just across the river.... However, we do use the city for shopping, dining, and transit. My daughters attend school in the city as well. I would like to thank you and others for the trash pick-up efforts along Peachtree Parkway.  


Below are a few before and after photos of the improvements made by our Public Works Department.

City to Launch Business Incubator Study

We can credit Paul Duke for his forward thinking in creating and developing Technology Park. The area has been considered a hub for innovators since Tech Park was established in the 1970s and '80s. To continue fostering that effort, the City of Peachtree Corners is undertaking a study to help create a business incubator program for budding entrepreneurs.

The city will work with Georgia Tech's Enterprise Innovation Institute of Georgia Tech to assess the community's readiness through a series of steps that include identifying and interviewing key community stakeholders, industry leaders and entrepreneurs.

"We are excited about exploring this strategy for supporting the city's economic development," said Mayor Mike Mason. "Incubators provide real payback for our citizens in terms of creating jobs. It's one of the best economic development tools a city can employ."   Read more ...

New Ban ners Flying High in Peachtree Corners

There is a lot of pride that comes from being part of a new city. Peachtree Corners, Gwinnett's newest city will soon celebrate its 3rd anniversary; and to help mark the occasion, banners with the message "Proud to Be Peachtree Corners" have been installed on light poles and at intersections in parts of the city.

It is no small feat to get a city launched and operational. And in a short time, the city has not only established and began operations to provide code enforcement, solid waste service, zoning, planning and development, and public works - it's got plans for a new town center on the drawing board and for creating a distinct downtown district.

Click here for drawings and a site plan for the new Town Center. 
Expect specialized Laser Road Surface Tester vehicles to be rolling down city streets beginning in late April.

Trucks to Soon Begin Analyzing City Streets


The City of Peachtree Corners currently maintains approximately 122 centerline miles of roadway after taking over for Gwinnett County in November 2014.

In order to develop an asset management database of those streets and to understand the existing conditions on a scientific basis, the Mayor and City Council entered into a contract with Infrastructure Management Services (IMS).  


These folks will begin analyzing the conditions of the city's roads and streets within the city limits. The data from this analysis will be used to develop a score for each mile of road, and those roads will then be ranked.  


This will give scientifically based picture of the conditions, as well as a comparison tool for each individual road.  That information can then be used to prioritize road paving projects for each year with funding which is available through the SPLOST funded resurfacing program for the City of Peachtree Corners.


IMS will use the Laser Road Surface Tester (RST) surveys along the routes in two passes.  IMS is currently scheduled to begin the field work in late April.


Contact Public Works Director Greg Ramsey at [email protected] with any questions.


New Sidewalks Planned for Two Areas of the City

Two sidewalk projects are underway in the City of Peachtree Corners.  The Public Works Department is managing the survey, design and construction of new sidewalk links on Winters Chapel Road and Technology Parkway.  

The Winters Chapel project will install sidewalks along the north side of the road from Peachtree Industrial Boulevard to Winterbrook Court. Construction should be underway by late summer.  

The Technology Parkway sidewalk project will add connections in the gaps on both sides of the road from Peachtree Parkway to Westech Drive. Te project is just underway with survey, and construction should begin in the fall.


These will be funded through the Georgia Department of Transportation, as part of their Local Maintenance Improvement Grant Program. Contact Public Works Department Director Greg Ramsey with questions: [email protected].
