Parents & Teens: Important Reminder

The Peachtree City Police Department is asking Peachtree City parents to talk to their teenage children (or to families they know who have teenage children) and help spread the word that stealing a golf cart is a felony.  What may seem to be a prank can have serious, long-term consequences (and not the good kind). 




COMMUNITY NEWS


Chinese Artist Meihua Lu’s Textured Oils on Display at Peachtree City Library

The Peachtree City Library is proud to announce the exhibit of local Chinese artist Meihua Lu, whose work will be on display at the Library through August.  Adept at a variety of mediums, Ms. Lu long ago focused on oil painting as her favorite medium.  Her passion to immerse herself in the experience of creating new worlds shows in the vibrant compositions of the natural world she shares with the viewer in her current exhibit.  There will be an after-hours reception on Saturday, July 15, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m., at the Peachtree City Library.  The public is invited. 



Street & Path Safety – Crosswalks, Pedestrians, and the Temptation to “Be Nice”

If you drive a car, cart, bicycle, or if you walk or run in Peachtree City, this information is important.  Many types of traffic interact on Peachtree City’s streets, sidewalks, and paths.

CROSSWALKS

  • Car drivers – Please stay aware of Peachtree City’s many path crossings -- watch for carts, bicycles, and pedestrians and be prepared to stop. 
  • Car Drivers:  DO NOT STOP unnecessarily and motion for waiting path users to cross.  Your thoughtful gesture could have tragic results because cars in other lanes may not see those preparing to cross.  This has happened in the past.
  • Pedestrians have right-of-way if crossing in a crosswalk. 
  • Golf Carts DO NOT have right-of-way when using crosswalks to cross Peachtree City streets.   Carts should always stop and yield to approaching automobile traffic before crossing a street, whether in a marked crossing or not.  State law does not afford the same protection to cart drivers that it gives to pedestrians.  Equally, automobile drivers approaching a marked crossing should always slow down and watch for any user already in a crosswalk, but, again, if pedestrians are waiting to cross DO NOT STOP to motion them into the crosswalk.  This could get them killed.
  • No golf carts are allowed on highway crosswalks or sidewalks - Motorized carts are prohibited from crossing the state highways in Peachtree City except in tunnels or on bridges.  State law also prohibits carts from using the state-owned sidewalks immediately adjacent to highways.  Low Speed Vehicles can cross state highways in the regular traffic lane if they are on streets with a speed limit of 35 mph or less (both sides of the highway).

CARTS & BICYCLES ON PATHS

  • Peachtree City Ordinance gives pedestrians all reasonable right-of-way on Peachtree City’s paths.  Golf cart drivers and cyclists are required to give an audible signal when approaching a pedestrian from behind.  Electric carts and bicycles are very quiet and can take pedestrians unaware.  Golf cart drivers and cyclists can be held criminally and civilly liable for any injuries to pedestrians.
  • Golf carts and bicycles must always keep to the right side of the path.  This is especially important when going around curves on Peachtree City’s winding, wooded paths.
  • Please SLOW DOWN and keep to the right on curves to avoid possible head-on collisions with carts or bicycles you may not see coming in the other direction, and with pedestrians you could see too late. 


PEDESTRIANS & PETS

  • Pedestrians need to stay to the side of the path (left and right are both legal). 
  • Do not let headphones block your hearing of oncoming traffic.  When a golf cart driver or cyclist gives the required audible signal, please provide a nod, a wave, or some other acknowledgement that you have heard them and are aware of their approach.
  • Pedestrians on Right or Left?  Pedestrians can legally walk on either side of the path because Peachtree City’s ordinance does not specify.  However, walking to the left is recommended, especially for those who use the busier paths, to ensure they can see carts and cyclists approaching.  No matter which side you walk on, please remain alert to the other path users coming from both directions so everyone stays safe.
  • If you are walking your dog on the path and it is trained to heel (on the left), walking on the left side of the path places you between your dog and any other path users.  Even the friendliest dogs can get a little jumpy on heavily used paths, so this provides a little more distance from other path users. 
  • NEVER allow extendable leashes to cross the path.   This is a hazard to other path users and can kill your pet.

CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS & TRAFFIC ADVISORIES


NEW!! Path Construction Notices:

  • Hwy 54/McDonalds TUNNEL OPEN/PATH CLOSED this week - Hwy 54 @ McDonalds - the path that runs adjacent to the Georgia Hwy 54 McDonalds restaurant (near marker 1838) will be closed THIS WEEK for the replacement of a stormwater pipe, which should be done by the end of the week.  The tunnel under Hwy 54 will remain open.
  • Peachtree Pkwy N at Flat Creek – the path north of Flat Creek Rd along Peachtree Pkwy N will be temporarily reduced to a one-lane, gravel surface, during construction at the roadway intersection.  Please reduce speed and use caution on the temporary path.  The intersection project should be completed by September 30. 


NuLink Fiber Installation – Wilshire.  NuLink will be returning to Wilshire neighborhoods beginning June 26 to complete their installation of fiber in that area.

Highway 54/MacDuff Parkway Projects in 2017 include two projects on the March 21 SPLOST (intersection improvements at MacDuff Parkway and Planterra Way) and the completion of the MacDuff Parkway extension and the CSX Bridge (anticipated in fall 2017).  More information at http://www.peachtree-city.org/index.aspx?NID=1134
