I’m excited about the proposed, 10-year Recreation and Parks strategic plan, which was recently presented to the City Council for review and discussion, and I want to take this opportunity to provide a quick update.
The Johns Creek city staff and its hired consultant have identified and prioritized the next ten years of proposed investment in our recreation and parks amenities.
We are at a critical crossroads for our parks system and need your help. Parks in Johns Creek are not just a nice feature to have in our community; our parks and recreational programs are an essential part of the high quality of life, which makes our exceptional city a desirable place to live and raise a family.
The pollen has washed away and now it is time to get outdoors and enjoy the sights and sounds of summer. In Johns Creek, our goal is to Be the Exception in all we do. So, we have lots to offer in June and it starts with movies and making memories.
Like many of you, I'm always amazed at how fast summer flies by. School will be starting in just a few weeks, and city staff will do their part to assure our students have a safe and happy return to the classroom. You can do your part by paying close attention to school zones and our youngsters as school begins. During the first few weeks of school, Johns Creek Police officers will spend extra time in our school zones — in the mornings and afternoons — to make sure drivers are complying with designated speeds.
After a long and chilling winter, summer has finally arrived in North Georgia. I plan this summer to spend some time traveling, but I know that there are a few dates when I will be right here in Johns Creek enjoying my hometown.
With so many things going on in Johns Creek, one of my biggest challenges each month is to choose a topic to write about. Given how quickly news comes at us every day and the increasing demands on personal time, I am very grateful for the opportunity to get this letter to you every month, so I strive to be sure that I am getting you information that is important to you
