Sometimes a Little Does Go a Long Way

Written by Mayor Jim Still

One of the more obvious challenges facing people in the metro Atlanta area is traffic. Traffic congestion can be the most draining aspect of any trip around Fulton County, even on a Saturday afternoon.

Billboard Update

Written by Mayor Mike Bodker

As you drive around our city, I’m sure you’ve taken notice of new billboards beginning to pop up.  As a matter of history, this issue predates Johns Creek as an incorporated city.

The companies then began the process of suing Fulton County for the right to erect billboards. Johns Creek joined the lawsuit after it was incorporated in 2006. The lawsuit was resolved by the Georgia Supreme Court in 2011, with the finding that the Fulton County sign ordinance was unconstitutional, and that the billboard companies were entitled to erect up to 75 billboards, including 31 billboards at 27 locations within Johns Creek.
