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.

Atlanta-based developer 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 ...

 City Promotes Crime-Free Program for Multi-Family Housing

Improving the safety and welfare of residents living in one of Peachtree Corners 24 apartment complexes has been a top priority for city leaders. Mayor Mason announced that the city of Peachtree Corners will join forces with Gwinnett County Police Department in promoting a program aimed at reducing crime in multi-family housing units.

The "Crime Free Multi-Housing Program," which has been effective in other Gwinnett communities is now being offered to Peachtree Corners property managers and owners. The program works through the cooperative effort of property owners, residents and police.

"Keeping Peachtree Corners' residents safe is on the top of the city's list," said Mayor Mike Mason. Statistics show that after implementing the program communities have seen a significant drop in robberies, burglaries, auto theft, drugs, gangs and other crimes by as much as 16 percent in just the first year.

Memo from Mayor Mike Mason: Voting in City Elections

As a resident of Peachtree Corners, I can certainly understand your disappointment on learning that you will need to visit two separate locations to cast your vote. Please let me explain.

Gwinnett County Board of Registrations and Elections has a policy that due to the large number of municipalities (cities) within the county, it does not contract with cities to hold municipal elections. Therefore, all 16 cities in Gwinnett County must hold their own elections at separate polling locations. Read more ...
