Peachtree City 2019 Resident Survey Now Open
Please let us know what you think!

The City of Peachtree City is asking residents to participate in the 2019 Resident Survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5S95PJS . Peachtree City conducts this survey every two to three years to gather resident input on satisfaction with city government services and to gather input for spending priorities in the coming years.  Residents also have the ability to weigh in with comments and questions on issues not covered by the questions (if you do ask questions, please be sure to include your email or phone number to receive a response).  The online survey will be open through Monday, June 24. 

Storm Damage & Road Closures

This weekend, Peachtree City received 1.7” of rain on Friday and an additional 5.3” of rain on Saturday at Lake Peachtree, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.  The readings upstream at Lake Kedron had 1.5” on Friday and 6.3” on Saturday.   For reference, a 100-year-rain event would be more than approximately 8” of rain in 24 hours. 

  • Hwy 54/74 Intersection – The sinkhole at Hwy 74 S/Hwy 54 E (by the civic sign) has reformed.  The right turn lane from Hwy 74 northbound onto Hwy 54 eastbound closed.  GDOT is aware of the issue and scheduling repairs (no time-frame available yet for completion).
  • Flat Creek Road closed to through traffic between Tinsley Mill (Fairway Lane) and Flat Creek Court due to a sinkhole in the right-of-way.  The neighborhoods of Dover Square, Ridgelake, and Flat Creek Villas are accessible via Flat Creek at Highway 54 at Willowbend Rd.  All others, please use other routes (Northlake Dr, Riley Pkwy, or Peachtree Pkwy N).  The City has requested an emergency utility locate, which should be completed by tomorrow.  This will allow a temporary repair to get the road reopened this week.  However, the storm pipe will have to be replaced in the coming months, requiring the road to be reclosed for an estimated 45-60 days. 
  • Fallen Trees – Crews responded over the weekend to address fallen trees on roadways as they occurred.  They are now in recovery mode performing cleanup.  If you encounter a fallen tree blocking or threatening a cart path, please report the location (with path number or nearest neighborhood or street) to cmack@peachtree-city.org 
  • Lake Peachtree –The new spillway on Lake Peachtree worked as designed, with water topping the second level weirs. The highest weirs are designed to handle a 100-year-rain event or greater.

Stormwater Follow Up – Don’t Be a Dumper

Every resident can take steps to protect our stormwater system, which protects our streams and lakes (drinking water sources) and helps to channel water to prevent flooding.  Peachtree City’s stormwater system includes the curbs, gutters, and storm drains on our roadways, as well as drainage ditches and natural vegetation in our greenbelts.  Section 42-43 of Peachtree City’s Health and Sanitation Ordinance

Below are some Don’ts and Dos to keep in mind:

Don’t blow leaves or grass into the street.  Peachtree City Code expressly prohibits “dumping and deposit on the premises of another, streams, lakes, and other private property.  Yard debris in the street can make the roadway dangerous for motorcyclists and drivers, especially if the pavement becomes slick.  Debris washes from roads into storm drains, eventually dumping into our streams and lakes. 

Don’t dump limbs and yard trimmings in greenbelt drainage ditches.  This is also a “Dumping & Depositing” violation prohibited by code and can cause drainage areas to back up and flood adjacent paths and structures.

Don’t put anything in the storm drain at the street.  Dumping anything (paint, cooking oil, leaves, grass clippings) directly into the storm drain constitutes a more serious offense of “illicit discharge” into the City’s stormwater system.  This violation also applies to yard debris blown into the street that then washes into the storm drain.  The storm drains lead to our drinking water sources and should be protected.  Debris can also clog storm drains, causing water to back up in roadways, which can cause accidents. 

Instead – DO aim blowers and mowers back toward your yard or driveway to collect debris for composting, disposal via the service offered by your curbside garbage company, or deliver yard debris to the Peachtree Mulch Center on Rockaway Road.
