The gateway sign at the split between Peachtree Parkway and Peachtree Industrial Boulevard is decorated and lighted for the holidays. 
 
Peachtree Corners Monument Sign Lighted for the Holidays
 
If you've recently traveled northbound where Peachtree Parkway and Peachtree Industrial Boulevard split, you've undoubtedly noticed that the Peachtree Corners Paul Duke Parkway gateway sign is adorned with lights and holiday decorations.
It's the first time the stone-based sign, which was erected by the United Peachtree Corners Civic Association (UPCCA) in 2008, has been lighted for the holidays. Earlier this year, the UPCCA worked with Georgia Power to have electricity run to the sign
The sign was built with combined funds raised by the UPCCA and grant money from the state. UPCCA also raised the funds for the lighting project.
The City's public works department, which will take over the maintenance of the sign along with its other duties, added the lights, garland and tree just before the Thanksgiving holiday. Both the sign and tree will light up each evening through the holidays.  Read more ...

Plans for Creating Central Business District Revealed at City's Open House
 

 The top photo is a current view of the shopping center where IHOP and Chick-fil-A are currently located. The second image is the architect's vision for a mixed-use development on the corner and includes a pedestrian bridge connecting to the adjacent shopping center.
The architect's vision for a utility easement on Technology Parkway: Transform the area into a walk and bike path and landscape portions of the center turn lanes which are often un-used.
Technology Park has a number of office buildings overlooking small lakes. The architect's rendering shows condominiums built next to an existing office building. The condominium complex overlooks a grassy area leading to the lake where residents can enjoy boating and walk along the trails on the water's edge. 
 
    Creating a vision for a walkable, connected downtown core, and fashioning a community identity was the focus of a study the City launched earlier this year.
    Through a series of community meetings, online surveys, mail and social media, residents and business owners and operators had the chance to provide input into the study. The ultimate goal was to develop a concept plan the city would use as a guide. The results you see here are architectual visions for enhancing the area of Peachtree Parkway between Medlock Bridge and Holcomb Bridge Roads. 
    Elements of the study included finding ways to improve problem traffic areas, ideas for redeveloping aging strip malls, ways to integrate pedestrian and bike paths within the business district and ideas for creating safe, efficient ways for foot traffic to cross Peachtree Parkway.   Read more ...
