The Environmental Protection Division has issued a 30-day comment period ending July 1 regarding a variance request to encroach within 25 feet along a 950 linear feet of stream buffer near an unnamed tributary to the Chattahoochee River to construct connector trails in the Peachtree Corners area.

The project, which will provide pedestrian access and recreation, also proposes improvement to the stream water quality by constructing instream riffle pool sequences, rock cross vanes and rock toe protection. This includes a 2.7-mile area on Peachtree Parkway from the intersection of Peachtree Parkway and Peachtree Industrial Blvd.
