COMMUNITY NEWS

Peachtree City Library Artist Reception on January 13

The library will host an after-hours reception for artists Michael Ottensmeyer and Vinayak Godbole on Saturday, January 13, at 6:00 p.m.  The public is invited to this free event. 

Ottensmeyer has been an avid painter and writer for over 15 years. His love of country landscapes brings fond memories of his youth on the family farm in Indiana and has inspired his painting of stylized landscapes, farmscapes, and villages in the Shaker style of architecture.

Godbole worked with and trained in different art mediums throughout his life as an amateur artist. Having studied in India with renowned portrait artist KB Kulkarni in oil and watercolor, he developed his love of portrait painting.  Godbole won numerous art awards during this time and also designed stage sets. Retirement has given him more time to use those skills and evolve as a creator of custom original paintings.

For more information about this and other art events at Peachtree City Library, contact Rebecca Watts, Arts Coordinator and Adult Services Librarian at rwatts@peachtree-city.org

 

Police Department hosting CERT Program

The Peachtree City Police Department is hosting an Adult Community Emergency Response Team class beginning February 15.  The classes will be held from 6:30 – 9:00 p.m. each Thursday for 10 weeks, concluding on May 3.

The CERT Program helps individuals prepare for the first few critical hours following a sudden emergency. Classes will include basic medical treatment, active shooter awareness, and other related emergency environments. 

Prospective candidates must be at least (18) years of age and a resident of Georgia.  Applicants will be required to sign a Waiver of Liability form and will be subject to a criminal history background check as a pre-condition to acceptance into the program. There is no charge to attend this class; however, the class size will be limited. 

More information about the Community Emergency Response Team can be obtained by visiting the Peachtree City CERT website CERT-PTC web site, the Police Department’s Facebook page, or by calling 770-487-8866.

Applications, available at http://www.cert-peachtreecity.com/ and at the Police Station, are due by February 9.

 

Peachtree City’s Annual Senior Homestead Exemption Registration Underway

Forms for qualifying senior citizens to register for the 2018 Peachtree City Senior Homestead Exemption are now available at City Hall. Peachtree City residents must register each year for the exemption.

Qualifying PTC homeowners must be age 65 by January 1 of 2018 and must already have applied for the standard Homestead Exemption through the Fayette County Tax Commissioners Office. The household income, which must be less than $30,000, will be calculated on the Federal Adjusted Gross Income of the applicant and spouse.  The exemption is a flat rate of $5,000 per home, which would amount to about $35 savings in City property taxes under the city’s current millage rate. Qualifying seniors should bring proof of age and income (a copy of their 2017 tax returns) to City Hall, 151 Willowbend Road, in Peachtree City to file for the exemption.

The deadline to file for 2017 is 5:00 PM on Wednesday, February 28, to meet the March 1 deadline imposed by state law. The City will accept proof of income through Friday, April 13, 2017 (but only from those who filed their registration card by February 28).  Residents with questions may contact City Hall at 770-487-7657 or email info@peachtree-city.org

CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS & TRAFFIC ADVISORIES


Hwy 54 West Intersection Construction begins this week


  • Planterra Way/Hwy 54 (SPLOST Project #4) - Construction setup will begin tomorrow evening (Tuesday, January 8), and work will occur primarily in the evening and overnight to minimize the impact on traffic.  Additional turning lanes are being added on both sides of Highway 54 to allow for the elimination of the split-phase traffic signal. 
  • MacDuff Parkway/Hwy 54 (SPLOST Project #5) – Work will begin within the next couple of weeks for the reconfiguration of turn lanes at this intersection.


Both projects should be completed by early April (weather influenced).  For project details, visit www.peachtree-city.org/SPLOST



Bridge CLOSED to carts

The bridge over the creek behind City Hall (between the parking lot at Picnic Park and the lower levels of the Library and City Hall) is closed to golf carts this week (an inspection last week revealed a considerable increase in rust that the City will have checked before reopening the bridge to all traffic). 



Utility Projects in Rights-of-Way. 

  • AT&T has obtained encroachment permits to work throughout Fairfield, along MacDuff Parkway, and in the Lexington Circle area,
  • NuLink is continuing work in the rights-of-way installing fiber optic lines in/along The Marks (North & South), Robinson Road (Peachtree Pkwy S to Crosstown), The Estates, Peachtree Pkwy S (Robinson Rd to Merrywood Ln), The Oaks at Timberlake, and Huntington Place.



Lake Peachtree Spillway Replacement - August 2017 - June 2018

UPDATED!!  At the January 4 City Council Meeting, project manager Dan Davis (Integrated Science and Engineering) reported that the spillway construction is currently on schedule and on budget.  Work continues on the spillway foundation this month (note:  it must be 45F or warmer to pour concrete).  They hope to be able to raise the lake level by two more feet after this portion is completed (around February), with the goal of having the lake returning to full pool at the end of May while the project wraps up.  Work at this time does not include the path bridge that will cross Flat Creek at the Spillway (that is a separate project).  More information, including Mr. Davis’s presentation, is available at http://www.peachtree-city.org/index.aspx?nid=1123


  • Path Detour in effect – NO TRESPASSING!! The spillway construction zone path detour is now in effect and the “No Trespassing” signs will be enforced. The map at http://www.peachtree-city.org/DocumentCenter/View/10447 shows the alternate routes path users will take until the spillway construction zone is cleared.  Automobile drivers on Fishers Luck are asked to use extra caution and reduce speed in the coming months due to the carts sharing roadway.
