News from the County

Simpsonwood Becomes County's Newest Park


 Gwinnett County has closed on the $14 million purchase of Simpsonwood from the North Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church. 

Funded by SPLOST, the Simpsonwood acquisition preserves green space and provides passive recreational opportunities for Gwinnett residents.


The 223-acre Simpsonwood property is predominantly forested with hardwood and evergreen trees with approximately 2,140 linear feet of river frontage along the Chattahoochee River. 

A timeline has not yet been established for planned improvements to the park property. The first step in the process is to develop a park master plan, which is anticipated to begin within the year.


For more information contact Gwinnett County Parks and Recreation Department, 770-822-8840.

City to Establish Veterans Memorial

Plans are underway to create a memorial to honor Peachtree Corners veterans as a way to recognize all of those who have served - or are still serving - in the armed forces.

The location has yet to be determined but the plan is to have the Veterans Memorial dedicated during the same time frame that the city's Town Center is expected to be complete which is the fall of 2017.

We would like to document veterans stories and honor them at the dedication service but we need your help in identifying our veterans.

If you are a veteran, or a friend or a family member of a veteran living in the city, please send in their names and contact information.

Send an email to Judy Putnam, Communications Director at [email protected] and include the veteran's name, branch of service and years served. Please include a daytime phone number as well.

You may also call Judy's direct line at 770-609-8821 with the information.

City Receives $26,000 Donation from UPCCA


Tuesday, Feb. 11, turned out to be a proud day for United Peachtree Corners Civic Association (UPCCA. The organization's president Scott Hilton, its director, Debbie Mason and past board member Gay Shook were able to deliver a check in the amount of $26,000 to the City of Peachtree Corners.

The funds represented what remained from contributions collected over the 11-year period when Peachtree Parkway Improvement Project, a UPCCA committee, maintained the 17 medians on Peachtree Parkway from the split at Peachtree Industrial Boulevard to the Chattahoochee River.

The money has been earmarked for a beautification project on the north end of Peachtree Parkways as you enter the city heading southbound.

Until recently, it was up to the volunteers of the Peachtree Parkway Improvement Project (PPIP) committee to collect contributions from businesses along the busy artery to fund the upkeep of Peachtree Parkway.  Read more ...

Take the  Three-Count 
Stop Sign  Challenge

Do you always come to a complete stop at a stop sign? Often drivers think they've stopped when they've really crept through the intersection without coming to a complete stop.

Here is an easy way to make sure you've stopped completely. It's called the "3 Count Challenge."

  • Stop
  • Count to 3
  • Look all ways
  • Proceed
By stopping, counting to three, and moving you head around blind spots, you can reduce the lielihood of a collision. 

Make it muscle memory and do it with every stop sign everywhere. Teach your kids. Have them count with you. It's never too early to teach good habits.

Three Questions for the Mayor

Q: When will the developer break ground on the new Town Center?


A: This is an exciting project, and one that will be a centerpiece for the city. The developer, Fuqua Development, is expected to break ground on the 20.6 acre tract in the fall and it's expected to be complete in late 2017.The Town Center will feature retail, restaurants, a movie theater, town homes - and a two-acre town green for community gatherings and events. 


In a survey taken last year, an overwhelming number of residents ranked the creation of a town center with green space as a top priority for the city. The property was once destined to become a 270+ garden apartment development until the city stepped in to purchase this undeveloped tract of land.


You can find more information about the plans for the Town Center on the city's website, Click on the link labeled "City Projects" and located near the top left side of the homepage.


Q: What is the purpose of Livable Center Initiative (LCI) Study?


A: Paul Duke, who is considered the founder of Peachtree Corners, had an idea in the late 1960s for a community that would incorporate a place that people could live, work and play to reduce the need for long commutes. It is considered one of the first planned community concept to be developed in the country.

It's been over 50 years since those plans were put to paper. Our needs have changed, residents are looking for a wider variety of housing choices and more pedestrian-friendly means, such as walking and cycling trails in the city.


The study also looked at ways to address our traffic issues, especially along Peachtree Parkway, and finding ways to refresh and redevelop the city's aging commercial, retail and office buildings.


Among the first projects to get underway will be the development of a bicycle path plan and the design for a bridge over Peachtree Parkway to connect the Town Center to the Forum. Grant money is available to assist with these and a number of the projects identified in the study


Q:  What is the next step for the development of the 6 1/2 acres located on the corner of Peachtree Parkway and Peachtree Corners Circle?


A: The Planning Commission is expected to review the plans for this project at its March meeting. Then the Commissions' review, and any recommendations, will go before the City Council at its April meeting for a final decision. The property is owned by Charlie Roberts, who plans on adding a restaurant, retail space, and eventually a hotel.

Winters Chapel Corridor Study Draws Big Crowd

Nearly 200 residents participate in the joint Peachtree Corners/Dunwoody workshop

The Fellowship Hall of the Winters Chapel United Methodist Church was brimming with activity Tuesday (Feb. 24) evening with nearly 200 residents and business owners and operators from both Peachtree Corners and Dunwoody.

They came to participate in a workshop to provide their input on ways to improve Winters Chapel Road, the heavily traveled corridor that winds its way through both cities.

The cities of Peachtree Corners and Dunwoody launched the joint study this year to discover ways to improve pedestrian safety, increase road safety and enhance the appearance of the 2 1/2 mile road that runs from Peachtree Industrial Boulevard to Spalding Drive.  Read more ...

Construction Projects in Peachtree Corners

In lieu of responding to questions from the public, this month I wanted to take an opportunity to highlight a few new businesses that are under construction here in Peachtree Corners.


Taco Bell (5460 Peachtree Parkway):


We have a new fast food restaurant under construction within the parking lot with Arby's and Wendy's Peachtree Parkway. This new restaurant will provide fast casual dining for the employees of the businesses within city and for the community.


Slingshot Entertainment (6344 Cash Court):


Slingshot Entertainment is presently under construction within the old BJ Warehouse Club store located at 6344 Cash Court (across from the Zaxby's and Racetrack on Jimmy Carter Blvd). This project consists of a complete interior remodel of the 127,972-ft2 building to include conference space, a bowling alley, bar and restaurant, indoor electric go-cart track and adult obstacle course. This will be the entertainment venue for our community. 


Noble Fin (5260 Peachtree Parkway):


Located on the old Dreamland BBQ pad in front of Earth Fare will be Noble Fin, a steak and seafood restaurant.


Unfortunately we cannot single out every one of our new businesses in Peachtree Corners, but the above three constitute commitments from their owners to invest in our community. Taco Bell and Noble Fin will be new buildings from the ground up and Slingshot Entertainment is complete interior renovation of a previously vacant large building. These three projects showcase what we hope will be a continual resurgence of our construction industry.  


Please follow this section of the e-newsletter for announcements from the Building Division for Building Safety Month in May. During the month of May, your Building Division will hold a series of training classes for the public on permitting and building residential decks.

Sewer Line to be Replaced in Peachtree Corners Neighborhood


Beginning this month Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources (DWR) will begin work on replacing aging sewer pipes on several Peachtree Corners streets.


The existing 30-year-old pipes will be replaced on Gunnin Road, Ranger Court and Spalding Drive.


Residents may notice pipes being delivered, and utility markings a few weeks before work begins. 


Work will be performed along one street at a time and not throughout the neighborhood all at once and will be performed Monday - Friday during daylight hours. However, some weekend days may be allowed if necessary.


During construction one lane of the road will be open at all times and the contractor will ensure homeowners have access to their driveways.


The work is expected to take 11 months to complete. 


For more information contact Roxsann Bowles, DWR Project Manager, 678-376-6898 or 678-906-9558 (cell).
