The state of Sandy Springs

Sandy Springs

Sandy Springs
Mayor Rusty Paul recently delivered his sixth annual State of the City address
to members of the Sandy
Springs Perimeter Chamber
, guests, city leaders and elected officials. Paul,
who is in his second term, outlined three challenges the city is addressing:
better reliability of water, which is provided by Atlanta’s and Fulton County’s
aging water system; the revitalization potential of the city’s north end; and
traffic congestion. While he said the proposed east-west express lanes on the I-285
northern arc would help with mobility, he added, “we need a real transit
network to move people” so Sandy Springs can continue to attract new businesses
and workers.

To learn more about the city’s plans for economic
development and quality-of-life initiatives – along with plans in the Perimeter
area cities of Dunwoody and Brookhaven – check out “New Identity” in this month’s issue.
