Giving Thanks to Those Who Give

Written by Mayor Joe Lockwood

Another year has flown by, and here we are heading into the holiday season with Thanksgiving just a few weeks away. Our community has so much to be thankful for — engaged citizens, dedicated volunteers, strong businesses, and committed City staff.

Fall for Johns Creek

Written by Mayor Mike Bodker

The fall is upon us, the leaves are changing, and at the risk of jinxing us all, the Georgia humidity should finally be behind us. In general, it’s a great time to be out and about and enjoying the community at one of our City events, or in one of our parks and on the trails.

Good Communication = Maintaining a High Quality of Life in Milton Lockwood

Written by Mayor Joe Lockwood

Quality of life is important to everyone. It can mean something different for every family, every community. It’s definitely subjective, but it’s also something that we’re all constantly striving for in our lives. It’s the reason families and businesses gravitate to a specific community.

Charming and Remarkable Alpharetta

Written by Mayor Jim Gilvin

At a recent Alpharetta City Council meeting, we had the opportunity to review a zoning application for an extraordinary development that would include a luxurious hotel, a world-class fitness training facility, and a level of amenities that would draw high-level athletes from all over the globe. The proposal was so impressive and unique that throughout the zoning process, everyone I spoke to was enthusiastic about the possibility, yet skeptical about the business model.

Transparency in Government

Written by Mayor Lori Henry

You hear the word “transparency” a lot when talking about government. I take transparency in government very seriously, and I want to assure you the City of Roswell is a transparent government. We pride ourselves on making information available to our residents through open meetings, the City’s website, recording, videotaping, and indexing our mayor and council meetings, and also through our open records process. While the City of Roswell is transparent, I want to take our transparency to another level. I want City information to be convenient for citizens to access, and City government participation to be made easier. Today’s technology makes that possible.

School Is in Session

Written by Mayor Mike Bodker

I don’t know who first said, “Sending the kids back-to-school makes me want to cry — tears of joy,” but I find myself relating well to this thought the first week in August each year. Don’t get me wrong, I love my two teenagers and the precious time we have to spend together. However, I also love my two teenagers back in school.

Whether you’re traveling long distances to vacation or celebrating summer with a few family “staycations,” I hope everyone is making lasting memories with their friends and family!

Continuing Roswell's Tradition of Service

Written by Mayor Lori Henry

There have been many changes in our City government in the past several months. We have a new mayor, four new council members, and a new City administrator. The leadership of the City has changed, but we are continuing the tradition of providing our residents with the high level of service Roswell is renowned for across the metro Atlanta area.

Fill Your Summer with Family Fun

Written by Mayor Joe Lockwood

After a cold winter and rainy spring, I’m looking forward to the warmer summer months, spending time outside with my family. Though I have to admit, the rain has been a real plus — it’s nice to see Georgia’s lake levels back up and the Level 1 drought restrictions lifted after several years.

Written by Mayor Mike Bodker

As our warmer and normal spring-time temperatures have finally overcome the winter chill, it’s that time of year to take our active lifestyles outside again, and enjoy all that our city has to offer.

Johns Creek: Forging a Legacy of Premier Residential Living

Written by Mayor Mike Bodker

It never ceases to amaze me the amount of talent we have in our relatively small city of 83,000. From Jeff Foxworthy, Usher, and Angelica Hale, and prominent news anchors such as Karyn Greer and Russ Spencer, to Olympic medalists, CEOs and other senior-level corporate executives, and top-tier educators.
