Johns Creek Purchases 133 Acres of Land
The Johns Creek City Council authorized the Mayor on Nov. 16 to execute a purchase agreement for approximately 133 acres of land for recreation and parks.
“I am very pleased for our residents that City Council authorized this significant purchase,” said Mayor Mike Bodker. “This large tract of land provides the city additional park space, and will add to the high quality of life in Johns Creek. The public has said loud and clear that adding park space in Johns Creek is a high priority.”
The property will be used for recreation and/or open space for the benefit of the public. It is located in the eastern half of the city adjacent to the Rogers Bridge Trail and the proposed Rogers Bridge connection to Duluth. The property has vehicular access from Bell Road and has nearly 2,000 ft of frontage along the Chattahoochee River.
The final park site plan has yet to be determined and the public will have input into the final park layout.
Date: January 26, 2016
Location: Atlanta Athletic Club

Ham Radio Parity Act Passes Senate
On November 18, the Amateur Radio Parity Act (S. 1685) passed the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation by a voice vote.
S. 1685 replaces community associations’ guidelines and rules and imposes a federal standard for approval of the installation of HAM radio towers and antennas. If this bill should become law, community associations would lose the ability to create reasonable processes and aesthetic guidelines, of which are essential to preserving property values and ensuring the safety of homeowners.
