Did your comments make our list?
Our Peachtree Corners Patch commenters are an engaging and entertaining bunch. Here are just a few of the interesting, funny and/or insightful comments posted on Peachtree Corners Patch during the past week.
I proposed that they buy the property across from the Forum and take on a developer as a partner to develop it into something that would bring in needed tax dollars.
If they could build something that could be rented they could pay the debt down quick and then sell out after paying the debt off and put that money into the city coffiers.
The problem with what was going into that space was the fact that it would have put a big strain onto the school system and a good school system is PARAMOUNT when you are dealing with the value of real estate. Rusty Taylor
Some feel the mayor or a member of council should approach them, while I have no hesitancy to confront my representative if I feel ignored. Some vilify our representatives while I believe they are acting in good faith with the good of Peachtree Corners as their motivation including fulfilling the primary duty of thoughtful planning for our community. Some feel our representatives should engage in debate here in Patch, but these pages are not set up for in-depth debate and there are future open meetings planned and monthly "coffee with council" that better serve. I do not wish to dissuade anyone from expressing an opinion here, but there are limitations to this forum, the opinions expressed will likely not change through this thread, and it appears we are at the point that we should agree to agreeably disagree.

My first reaction was no. But if it could be turned into a town center like Suwanee's it would be an attractive addition to the area. Don Simpson
The fight over this piece of land has been going on for years. I have lived in this area for 18 years, and this strip of land has been mentioned being turned into apartments many times. This is not about a quality of life or 50/50 tipping point? The real issue will be the traffic nightmare and the fact that the taxpayer will be somehow and someway be paying for this down the road! (No pun intended.) Brooke Siskin.
Wonderful! This taxpayer looks forward to paying taxes for local, positive growth. A town center a la Suwanee would be great. Lestyn Lewis
