  • 3209 Kelly St scottdale, GA - Scottdale
    Decalb county is not taking the responsibility to pave an official county road I called "planning & design" they said we do not have a plan for this road & dekalb county "roads & drainage" said its not their responsibility but I spoke to Mr. Jim McKenny cell# 4042974583 I told him that the unpaved road is forming channels preventing us from driving down the street to reach our homes he promised to pour some curbs to control the water flow but he disappeared & never answer my calls anymore please come take a look at a COUNTY ROAD in the USA, thank you
  • 951 N. Indian Creek Drive Clarkston, GA - Clarkston

    Need assistance to get DeKalb County to repair fence & secure gate behind Clarkston Library on Indian Creek Drive. Vandals are coming through the gate & fence and entering the Clarkston Community Center….destroying vegetable gardens and other projects made by the local residents. This past week vandals destroyed a patch of carrots grown by some children!!

    The Center locks all gate access to the field during the evenings, weekends & holidays, however, until this fence is secured, the problem will persist. The Clarkston Chief of Police highly recommends “razor wire” in this area to prevent future destruction of the fence.

    If the department responsible for county property would like to meet with me to review and discuss, my email is . Prompt attention to this matter would be greatly appreciated before the gardeners begin planting in early March.

    PS: once the fences are repaired, the community residents will place warning signs on the gate & fence to discourage entrance.

  • 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.
  • 2342-2348 Mount Vernon Road Dunwoody, GA - Dunwoody
    There are several areas outside of Oxford Chase subdivision with raised sidewalk sections. Walkers and runners constantly trip/fall on these areas.
  • Ashford Dunwoody Rd@Mt Vernon Rd Dunwoody, Georgia - Dunwoody
    People driving north on Ashford Dunwoody are continually turning left at the Mt. Vernon light in front of people trying to exit the Branches neighborhood. More recently they are becoming more aggressive with this illegal turn where three and four cars will turn left once the light turns, causing those driving straight out of the neighborhood to hit their brakes to avoid a collision with an illegal left turning vehicle that is not yielding to oncoming traffic. The Dunwoody police should monitor this intersection and issue tickets to decrease this behavior.
  • Oxford Chase Way Dunwoody, GA 30338 - Dunwoody
    Remove fallen tree limbs on Mt.Vernon Rd. just near the entrance of Oxford Chase sub-division off Mt.Vernon Road. Please see attached photos. Thank you!
  • 1587 New St Ne Atlanta, GA 30307, USA - Edgewood
    New street is a narrow street that dead ends at fence. On the other side of the fence there is a cul-de-sac. New Street is in violation of the 2003 Fire Code section 503.2.5 because there is no way for a fire truck to turn around on the street. The city needs to use eminent domain to acquire the cul-de-sac.
  • 1046 Fayetteville Rd Se Atlanta, GA 30316, USA - East Atlanta
    The intersection of Flat Shoals Rd and Fayetteville Road in East Atlanta is badly in need of repair. It is dangerous to turn or cross the intersection, as traffic moves so slowly through here.
  • 5281 Oxford Chase Way Atlanta, Georgia - Dunwoody

    Please cover the pothole near the center island of the entrance to Oxford Chase sub-division. It is on the road near the side of the island leaving the sub-division. Please refer to the attached pictures.


  • The Perimeter Dunwoody, Georgia - Dunwoody

    Sec. 24-154. Prohibition against littering in public or private property or waters.

    There is only a guard rail between 285 outer loop and Nancy creek, which results in litter falling into Nancy Creek. The inner loop side has a sound wall which prevents it from entering the creek.
