What a Difference a Few Years Make
When the city incorporated five years ago it had office vacancy problems. But in the short time since Peachtree Corners became a city, we've seen a 64 percent increase in company re-locations and a 182 percent increase in the number of jobs that those re-locations have brought to our city.

The city has also seen those corporate re-locations bring in an investment jump of 1,432 percent in the last five years, including the $15 million invested by Crawford & Company, the most recently announced re-location, coming to Peachtree Corners from the Perimeter area.

The Town Center will be located on Peachtree Parkway near Medlock Bridge Road.

5 Ways to Help Reduce Trash, Illegal Signage

Did you know 80 percent of the trash that ends up in our streams and oceans comes from roadside litter (according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency)?

Storm drains do not lead to treatment plants, which means when rain washes roadside litter down these drains it goes directly into waterways.

Help protect your environment by adopting a road. The program is designed to reduce the amount of trash and illegal signage cluttering county roadways.
