A Big Thanks to City's Hard Working Poll Workers
After spending more than 12 hours working on Election Day, the city's inaugural group of 10 poll workers were still smiling after a very long day. The team ranged from experienced people to those whose only experience was voting on a machine.

City Unveils Plans for Town Center
It’s taken nearly a year, but city leaders were finally able
to reveal the plans for Peachtree Corners’ Town Center which is planned for the
20+ acres across from The Forum.
Fuqua and the City began working on concept plans in late 2013 and on Monday,
Oct. 27, at a UPCCA-sponsored event, shared the vision for the new development.
The plans call for a mixed use development with retail
shops, restaurants, offices and townhomes, a two-acre green space, a place for
a performing arts facility and enough parking to accommodate special events.
The renderings displayed are concept plans of what the Town Center will look like when complete. The plans feature several restaurants, including roof-top dining overlooking the Town Green, a cinema, a clock tower, splash pool and band shell for outdoor concerts.
The community will be offered a chance for input at a public hearing. The timeline calls for construction to begin in late 2015 with a grand opening in mid-2017 Read more ...
