  • 1373 W Nancy Creek Drive Northeast Atlanta, Georgia - Brookhaven
    From 4:30 to 6:00pm, traffic backs up on West Nancy Creek Dr at Ashford-Dunwoody. Cars are lined up at least 1/2 mile down West Nancy Creek, and twice we've seen it backed up to the tear drop circle at Old Johnson Ferry near New Generations daycare which is 1 mile away. Please check the timing on these lights. Thanks!
  • Cartecay Dr At Sylvan Circle Atlanta, Georgia - Brookhaven
    A. Please, can this hedge be removed? The hedge at 1368 Sylvan Circle (at Cartecay Dr) is causing 3 major problems: 1. encroaching Cartecay so pedestrians have nowhere to walk; 2. Cars making a right hand turn cannot see pedestrians; 3. blocking out stop sign.
    B.Code Compliance: FENCE & HEDGE at 1376 Sylvan on Cartecay is built on right-of-way causing great danger to pedestrians --- walkers, strollers cannot get off the road as cars careen around the corner.
  • 3242-3252 Ashford Dunwoody Road Northeast Atlanta, GA - Brookhaven
    The area between Stratfield Drive and Humility Lane needs the sidewalk completed and the debris removed from the roadway. This is the only section of roadway that has an incomplete sidewalk. Kids, families, and runners / walkers have to dodge traffic and debris to get from neighborhood to neighborhood.
  • 3571-3621 Ashford Dunwoody Road Northeast Atlanta, Georgia - Brookhaven
    Do not allow northbound vehicles to stop and turn left into shopping center since traffic has to wait for heavy southbound traffic and back-ups into the Johnson Ferry intersection.
  • S. Bamby Lane Brookhaven, GA - Brookhaven
    Can the City help handle this horrible, unsightly mess that continues to grown on S. Bamby Lane? It has been there for over a week and is being added to daily. It contains trash, rotting wood, an old toilet and so much more. Please help keep our neighborhood CLEAN!!
  • 3995 Ashford Dunwoody Rd Ne Brookhaven, GA - Brookhaven
    At the lower entrance to the school, just below the peak in the hill on Ashford Dunwoody Road, the crosswalk is badly faded with poor signage. There is no green "State Law Stop for Pedestrians" signage in the crosswalk either. This is a very dangerous intersection due to the hill just above the crosswalk. Parents with children have a very hard time crossing the street into the school.
  • Storm Water Problem Acknowledged
    1471-1499 Briarwood Road Northeast Atlanta, GA 30329, USA - Brookhaven
    this drain fills up even when rain is light like today.
  • 4081 Ashford Dunwoody Atlanta, Georgia - Brookhaven


    I am a bit confused on a reported problem that is archived but I would like to readdress.

    In the ticket, the concern of operating a business out of a residence is addressed. In the commentary, the excessive paving / concrete in the front and side yards is also a concern shared.

    In another issue reported

    "Per the City's Zoning Ordinance, specifically Section 27-766(b)(7) -

    Parking shall not be permitted within the front yard in any single-family residential lot, except within a driveway, or in a roofed carport or enclosed garage. Within any single-family residential (R) district not more than thirty-five (35) percent of the total area between the street right-of-way line and the front of the principal building shall be paved, On any lot where adequate width exists so as meet the geometric design standards of the Institute of Traffic Engineers, a circular driveway shall be permitted, subject to the total driveway coverage authorized herein. However, no parking spaces or parking bays shall be established within any such front yard.

    To answer the question presented by the concerned citizen - Parking within a front yard of a residential (single-family) property is not permitted on grass/lawns. Additionally, PAVING of the front yard is limited to a maximum of 35 percent. A front yard is defined by the Zoning Ordinance as the "area extending across the total width of a lot between side lot lines and being that area between the street right-of-way lines and that line or lines established by the front wall or walls of the principal structure projected to intersect the side lot lines." Simply put, the front yard is the area defined by the front property line, side lot lines, and the front facade/wall of the residential dwelling."

    Is concrete not paving? Is this home not in more then 35% as defined above? Are these not parking spaces as noted?

    I understand it looks nice besides massive concrete but what processes does the city have in place now to ensure this does not repeat without city approval if the 35% applies?


  • 2146 Johnson Ferry Road Northeast Atlanta, GA - Brookhaven

    Improper and illegal flag displays. US Flags are faded, damaged, and displayed illegally.
    Section 21-28
    Flags not on flag poles (street lamps, wagons, pots, etc.). Flag pole possibly improperly set back at Corner Pizza. The US Flag should not be an advertising tool and should be properly cared for.

    Dilapidated Signs- Sec 21-11- present on the property.

    Planters located illegally on sidewalks in the pedestrian right of way. Also, appears to be discoloring and possibly damaging the sidewalks.

  • 2660 Osborne Road Northeast Atlanta, GA 30319, USA - Brookhaven
    Is this a dog park?? Despite signage posted in a number of areas detailing the ban of animals off leash, area residents continue to defy the law. I love dogs, yet I hate that fellow local residents that think the laws/ rules don't apply to them. It would be refreshing to see the rules followed.
  • 3435 Ashford Dunwoody Rd Atlanta, GA - Brookhaven
    We need additional signs that are placed in the center line to remind drivers that it is state law to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks. This location is at the crest of a hill and connects to a Publix. The current sign is only the yellow crosswalk indicator.
  • Nancy Creek Trail Atlanta, GA 30319, USA - Brookhaven
    No sign of a building permit. Seems to be violating zoning setback and pervious surface lot coverage. Plantings also in right of way (although they help hide the atrocious front yard fixtures. )
