From the Mayor's Desk

Mayor Mike Mason
Town Center, Veterans' Monument and Multi-Use Trail Plans
Three questions for the mayor

Q:  Along with the plans for the Town Center which includes retail shops, restaurants, town homes and a town green, will there be any other amenities?

A: Yes, the city would like to add a pedestrian bridge which would span Peachtree Parkway from The Forum to the new Town Center. But it would be more than just a bridge - it would actually be a destination. Imagine an expansive walkway that had benches and maybe flowers and trees where you could stop and sit along the way. After crossing the road, the bridge would wind its way through trees, over a creek and end at a walkway to the Town Green. It's still in the development stage, funding would come through grants and SPLOST funds.

Q: Do you have an update on the Veterans' Monument?

A: We've had a lot of favorable responses to our call for veterans. We've heard from men and women who are currently serving, many veterans and a number of families with spouses, and other family members who have served our country. It will be a great privilege to honor all of those who served or are serving. A committee, the Peachtree Corners Veterans Monument Association, has been formed. Headed by several veterans, the committee is diligently working on plans for the design of the monument and its location. The committee is also working on a website, which is expected to be launched soon where you will be able to keep up with the plans, volunteer, make donations and find other information.

Q: What is the city's plans for adding walking and bicycle trails throughout Peachtree Corners?

A: The city is looking at designing Peachtree Corners' own  beltline. We've got some wonderful opportunities to create a pedestrian and bicycle trail system throughout the city. A great short-term project would be to use the Colonial Pipeline easement that runs through Tech Park as a first phase. The trail would eventually be tied into a network of trails throughout the city. The core of this multi-use path would be centered around Peachtree Parkway between Holcomb Bridge and Medlock Bridge roads. It is intended to serve not only as a recreational amenity for the city, but also as an alternate transportation corridor for commuters. Funding would come from SPLOST.

Holcomb Bridge Road Corridor Workshop Draws Large Crowd

Over 1,000 people participated in the city's online survey.

The room at the Brunswick's Bowling Alley was filled to capacity Thursday (Aug. 20) evening with residents and business owners eager to participate in the second workshop as part of the city's Holcomb Bridge Corridor Study.
All were there to provide feedback on future growth strategies for the approximately 1,200 acres along Holcomb Bridge Road spanning from Peachtree Industrial Boulevard to Spalding Drive.
"This is an important project for the city," said Mayor Mike Mason. "We were very happy to see so many participated in the workshop."
Urban planners, Lord Aeck Sargent, have spent the past four months studying market conditions, collecting traffic counts and analyzing land-use patterns within the area. The planners have also gathered an extensive amount of public input to date - from a booth at the two-day Peachtree Corners Festival in June to an online survey throughout June and July.
"We have been continually astounded by the amount of people interested to see this area improve," said Matt Cherry, an associate with Lord Aeck Sargent who is managing the study. "Over 1,000 people took the online survey alone - probably the most we have ever seen for a study like this. This is going to be a great example of a true community-driven masterplan."
There will be one more round of public comments for residents and business owners/operators which will be scheduled in the coming months. The study is expected to be finalized in November.
Sidewalks, Landscaping Installed Along Buford Highway 

The Gwinnett Village Community Improvement District recently announced that a $1 million construction project to install sidewalks and landscaping on a stretch of Buford Highway between Jimmy Carter Boulevard in Peachtree Corners and the DeKalb County line has been completed.
The project also includes work on the curb and gutter and crosswalks at four intersections along the section of Buford Highway according to an Aug. 14, 2015 Gwinnett Village CID news release.
"The Buford Highway corridor has one of the highest concentrations of pedestrian traffic in our area," said Chuck Warbington, executive director for the Gwinnett Village CID. "From a safety and connectivity perspective this project was a high priority for us."
The project, designed to improve pedestrian safety along the busy corridor, was funded through a combination of Gwinnett County, Georgia Department of Transportation and CID funds.
"We're delighted that Gwinnett Village CID worked to have the new sidewalk and landscaping installed on this portion of Buford Highway which is an important gateway to our city," said Peachtree Corners Councilmember Phil Sadd (Post 1). "The addition improves safety, walkability for pedestrians and aesthetics for the area."
For additional information, please contact Gwinnett Village CID Communications Director Joel Washer, via email at [email protected] or by phone, 770-449-6542.

Gwinnett County Burn Ban 
Ends Sept. 30
 The Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) imposes a total ban on outdoor burning in Gwinnett County annually from May 1 to September 30.
Once the Burn Ban has been lifted on October 1, please be advised that if you are planning on burning you MUST first check with Gwinnett County Fire Marshall as to whether or not it is an allowable burn day.  

Many factors come into play that affect whether or not you can burn and this can change on a daily basis.  A few of these factors are - prevailing winds that are predicted to be, or are, in excess of 15 miles per hour, air pollution episodes, the National Weather Service issues a "Red Flag Warning" or a "Fire Weather Watch," when there is fog, rain, or a cloud base that is diffused or ill-defined - these are just some of the factors taken into consideration as to whether it will be an allowable burn day or not.
No burning of solid waste or household gar­bage is allowed. Burning is NOT allowed on Sundays or nights. 
This is not the full content of the Gwinnett Department of Fire and Emergency Services "Outdoor and Open Burning" and "Outdoor Burning Ordinance Restrictions" and should not be interpreted as such.  For the complete content, please visit the Gwinnett County Fire Marshal site at click on the tab "Outdoor Burning."
Remember BEFORE burning, check with Gwinnett County Fire Marshal first at either of the two contacts below:
Burn Information Line 678-518-4979 -
The Burn Information line and website are updated daily by 9:00 a.m.  If you suspect someone is improperly burning, please report it by calling 770-513-5700.
*Remember: Do not bury the fire. The fire will continue to smolder. Tree roots could catch on fire which will eventually surface and start a wildfire. If it's too hot to touch, it's too hot to leave!

Go Green - Use Energy-Efficient Materials When Building, Remodeling

Building green means living better, smarter and healthier. Just by choosing energy-efficient building materials and supplies, homeowners can make positive changes to both the inside and outside environments, creating homes that are better for you and our world.

Building green does not necessarily mean starting from scratch or spending more money. There are many ways to improve the green factor in existing homes by using longer-lasting and sustainable materials.
  • Use energy-efficient light bulbs, turn off lights and unplug electronics when not in use.
  • Seal air leaks.
  • Install programmable thermostats.
  • Upgrade windows, heating and air conditioning equipment.
  • Change filters frequently.
  • Install more insulation in walls, floors and attics.
  • Choose energy efficient appliances.
  • If you are building new, consider the best position on the lot for trapping light and energy, and make use of energy-efficient foundation, framing, plumbing, wiring and HVAC systems now available.
Green homes are also healthier homes, reducing mold, mildew and other allergens that contribute to asthma and other significant health issues. Below are tips for keeping your home dry and mold-free:
  • Keep it dry: install a drain pan under the water heater; place dehumidifiers in basements and other damp areas; position downspouts away from the house; repair any water damage.
  • Keep it clean: use track-off mats at all doorways; clean up dust to eliminate contaminants such as lead dust and allergens.
  • Keep it ventilated: install or replace exhaust fans in bathrooms and kitchens (make sure they vent to the outside).
  • Keep it contaminant-free: use wire shelving that doesn't collect dust; have your home tested for radon and lead-based paint.
