Over 180 Peachtree Corners citizens recently joined Mayor Mike Mason for the 6th annual State of the City Address to discuss the city’s vision and successful completion of the 21-acre Town Center, increased businesses joining Technology Park and soon to open Curiosity Lab at Peachtree Corners.
According to Mayor Mason, the Town Center created 28 new businesses and 528 new jobs and is expected to bring in $1.3 million in annual sales tax revenue and $15.4 million in annual sales. Mason noted the city’s efforts to create a master plan to transform Technology Park that incorporates the addition of research institutions, entrepreneurial training and mentors, professional networks, enhanced walkability, public space and mixed land use.
The mayor announced plans for a new 2.4-mile section to the city’s multi-use trail, the Crooked Creek Trail, along the Holcomb Bridge Road corridor. The new amenity will connect to nearby Crooked Creek Park in Sandy Springs with funding for the $2.4 million project coming from federal and state sources along with a $300,000 grant from the ARC.
