Greg Comstock of Alpharetta took this photo of the first day of Spring 2019 in the recently re-developed downtown of Alpharetta. “I have watched the re-development of the core of downtown Alpharetta over the last seven years. This shot was taken at 7 a.m. March 20 2019 on the plaza just as the sun was rising. The City Hall can be seen in the background,” he wrote.

Check out our new Alpharetta community section

Did you happen to see our new Alpharetta community section in today’s AJCePaper? 

If you missed it, you can view it here: 

The section appears each Thursday, and it’s part of our commitment to cover your community like never before. 

We’re always looking for feedback, and one of your neighbors, Sue Jones, already reached out to us this morning and shared some of her ideas on how we can make the section even stronger. 

“Include road work, festivals or road races like 10ks that affect our traffic,” said Jones, who's lived in Alpharetta since 1985 and described herself as an avid reader of the AJC for as long as she can remember. 

“Do a spotlight on someone who’s made a difference here! Run local questions – something that will make [readers] say, ‘I want to see that part of the paper today.’ ” 

We’re already working on incorporating some of Jones’ ideas into future editions. 

As I wrote in my piece introducing the new community section, we’d love to hear from you. 

You can email me at 

And thank you, Sue, for being the first to contact us. A small gift is heading your way.
