On Tuesday, the City of Sandy Springs hosted an open house for homeowner association members to better inform them on services and the inner workings of the city.
Below are some comments made by City Manager John McDonough.
- Bridge work on Roswell Road at I-285 is running on schedule and due to be complete by Oct. 31. There will be no lane closures during daylight hours, according to Public Works.
- Sandy Springs Police report a decrease in serious crimes for the sixth straight year. Residential burglaries are down 22 percent over 2010.
- Over the last several years, the city has invested $20 million in recreational facilities. A citizen survey revealed that many residents were unaware of the vastness of recreation and parks in Sandy Springs.
- $75 million in funded capital projects and infrastructure will be delivered over the next 3-4 years. Sandy Springs commits at least 20 percent of its annual budget to capital improvements. Most cities commit less than 5 percent.
