Working Together for the Health and Safety of the Roswell Community

Written by Mayor Lori Henry

To say that the last five months have been a challenge for all of us would be an understatement. Though these are unprecedented times for our community, state, and country, I want you to know the health and safety of our residents is and always will be my top priority. The City of Roswell is working to do its part in helping to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Milton's 2020 Gains

Written by Mayor Joe Lockwood

Little about 2020 has been easy. We have missed out on parties, date nights, games, and concerts. Some of us have even missed milestones like typical graduations, funerals, and weddings that bring people together. In Milton, we’ve canceled meetings and special events, like the Community Egg Hunt and July 3rd festivities, which residents look forward to annually. We’ve coped with unprecedented health worries, trying to keep those closest to us physically and mentally well in the age of COVID-19. On top of all that, we’ve seen our nation rocked with additional turmoil and challenges.

Resilient Alpharetta

Written by Mayor Jim Gilvin

The City of Alpharetta started 2020 with every expectation of it being a banner year. Then, on a Monday in early March, the Fulton County School System discovered one of its substitute teachers had been diagnosed with COVID-19. That was the day the coronavirus changed how the year 2020 would go down in history.

Embracing A New Normal

Written by Mayor Joe Lockwood

After a spring that, I’m pretty sure, lasted at least 12 years, summer is here. Finally. However, this summer in Milton won’t be like the 2019 version or any version before it. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed many things — including our perspective, and that’s going to stick for a while.

Alpharetta's Daily Visitors

Written by Mayor Jim Gilvin

By almost any standard, Alpharetta is a remarkable community. While there are many things that make our city exceptional, one of the biggest things that most residents aren’t aware of is the extraordinary size of our daytime population.

Highlights From Roswell’s State of the City Address

Written by Mayor Lori Henry

Two years ago, when I became mayor, an overall citywide strategic plan didn’t exist. The City of Roswell is currently creating a plan that embraces a common vision and goals for the future. Last year, we began collecting input from residents and businesses about what they wanted for Roswell’s future. More than 2,000 residents provided feedback, which will help us develop a strategic plan that will give marching orders to Roswell’s elected officials.

Alpharetta's Exciting Year Ahead

Written by Mayor Jim Gilvin

For the City of Alpharetta, 2019 was another extraordinary year. As our nation’s economy grows, the State of Georgia continues to provide an outstanding business climate, and unemployment levels remain at historic lows. Alpharetta has also grown and evolved in ways we could have only imagined just a few years ago.

Milton’s Constant and Strategic Progress

Written by Peyton Jamison

It is hard to believe that Milton was incorporated only 13 years ago. In just over a decade, we’ve established our community as one of the best places to live in Georgia, and it’s an honor to help lead the growth and direction of our beautiful and unique city. We’re working to preserve our rural heritage while updating the parts of Milton that will lead to our best future.

Thankful for Milton’s Progress

Written by Mayor Joe Lockwood

During my younger years, I can remember adults telling me, “The days go by slowly, but the years fly by.” I’m not sure where this saying originated, but it is very true for me this year. It seems like yesterday I was in City Hall for January’s annual State of the City event, talking about our 2018 accomplishments and providing a sneak peek of what we planned for 2019.

Fall in Love With Roswell's Autumn Activities

Written by Mayor Lori Henry

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. After our hot Georgia summers, the cooler breezes and crisp evenings are refreshing. Our tree canopy turns red and gold, perfect for taking beautiful photos and spending some time outdoors on Roswell’s magnificent trail system or kayaking down the Chattahoochee. This season is both relaxing and rejuvenating. For me, fall is the time of year to be thankful for all we have and to be surrounded by friends and loved ones.

Milton Police Explorers Program

Written by Mayor Joe Lockwood

Not only was Milton named the best city in Georgia to live in earlier this year, but thanks to the diligent efforts of the Milton Police Department, we’re consistently ranked the second safest city in Georgia. Of course, the public helps contribute to community safety by being vigilant and always adhering to “see something, say something.”
