Peachtree Corners State of the City

If you missed Mayor Mike Mason’s annual state-of-the-city address last Thursday, you may view it via video on the city’s website.

In the video, the mayor addresses a number of topics including job growth, rising home values, and improved office vacancy rates.

Other highlights:

  • The Town Center – most of the construction will be completed by year end; the city is planning a spring grand opening
  • Work is progressing on the multi-use trail, the next portion will include a path around a portion of Technology Park Lake.
  • Three new pedestrian crossings have been installed along with 4.5 miles of new sidewalks, all designed to improve pedestrian safety.

These are just a few of the topics from the mayor’s presentation. To view, visit, locate the “About” tab, then select “Videos” to view the mayor’s 2018 State-of-the-City address or you may use this link.
