City Challenges Big-Tree Hunters

Published

on

Arbor Day

The Peachtree Corners Green Committee extended a challenge to residents to identify the biggest tree in the city. It’s not limited to specific varieties of trees. The contest is aimed at identifying the largest trees and is part of the city’s celebration of Arbor Day.

Winners will receive a free dinner for two at the new Town Center, at a restaurant to be determined.

To submit a tree for consideration, please measure the diameter of the tree four feet off the ground and send a photo of yourself with the tree to jhoward@peachtreecornersga.gov. Please include the diameter of the tree, and the words “Big Tree Hunter” in the subject area.

Deadline for submission is 5 p.m. March 29, 2019.

A winner will be announced at the annual Arbor Day event at 11 a.m. on Friday, April 26, at Paul Duke High School, where there will be a tree planting event.

Peachtree Corners was recognized as one of the state’s “Tree City USA” communities for its commitment to caring for and managing its public trees. This is the city’s fourth year in a row to receive the designation.

Tree City USA provides the framework for community forestry management for cities and towns across America that meet requirements including the establishment of a tree board or department, establishment of a community tree ordinance, meeting specific spending levels for urban forestry, and planning an Arbor Day Celebration.

The mayor and council and other city leaders are joined by the Fuqua Development team to celebrate the Town Center grand opening April 27, 2019.

On July 1, the City of Peachtree Corners officially celebrated its 8th anniversary. It’s been an eventful eight years. The list of accomplishments since its incorporation on July 1, 2012 continues. A new Town Center, a Veterans Monument to honor our veterans, the launch of Curiosity Lab, a soon-to-be-complete pedestrian bridge, are just some of the recent highlights.

The city’s 11.5 mile multi-use trail, named the Corners Connector, continues to expand. A portion around Technology Park Lake was just completed — expect news of a ribbon-cutting to be announced soon. 

New businesses continue to open and re-locate to our city by the river enhancing the economic development of our city. And thanks to prudent financial management, the city continues to maintain its zero millage rate. Happy 8th anniversary Peachtree Corners.

Building Southwest Gwinnett County – Annual Mayors Panel Discussion

Published

on

The Southwest Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce presents a panel discussion of the common issues of the cities that are the Gateway to Gwinnett. This is a great opportunity to ask questions about the issues that affect our community and our businesses. This event is part of the First Friday Breakfast program and it will be held on July 10 from 7:30-9 AM at Atlanta Tech Park.

The mayors of Berkeley Lake, Norcross and Peachtree Corners represent three of Gwinnett’s most diverse cities: one of the biggest cities and one of the smallest cities in population, one of the newest and one of the oldest cities in the county, and as a group, one of the most diverse ethnic populations in the country. Many of our concerns cross the boundaries of these three cities and certainly the economic health of any one impacts the businesses in all three.

Our moderator will be posing pre-submitted questions to each of the mayors and as time permits questions from the audience. Topics will include issues facing each of the cities and common issues facing Southwest Gwinnett County. This is a great opportunity for our audience to be engaged in the direction being taken by the cities in the Southwest Gwinnett Chamber community. 

Please submit questions to this email address: bcoffey@southwestgwinnettchamber.org with the subject “I have a question for the Mayors”.
