The latest flooding on December 24, 2015 had a devastating effect on the banks along Peachtree Creek. Many sections of the creek banks had the vegetation washed away, leaving the banks exposed to further erosion. In other areas, sand was deposited along the banks covering the existing vegetation. After consulting with Trees Atlanta and the Chattahoochee Riverkeepers, it was advised that plants appropriate for the eroded banks needed to be planted before spring so that they would have a chance to take root and stabilize the banks. Your help on this day is needed to install live plants to help shore up Peachtree Creek’s eroding banks. Please sign up today!

Chattahoochee Riverkeeper and National Park Service have joined together to organize this multi-site cleanup within the 44 miles of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area and several Georgia State Parks. Peachtree Creek, along Atlanta Memorial Park, has been selected as one of the many sites that will be participating. More details with a registration link coming in mid February. We hope you can join us to clean up our creek!

The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) invites you to attend a Public Information Open House (PIOH) to discuss replacement of the Northside Drive Bridge over Peachtree Creek. GDOT routinely conducts studies to determine the adequacy and integrity of bridges and it has identified the Peachtree Creek structure, built in 1926, for replacement. This project proposes to reconstruct the bridge over Peachtree Creek, and the GDOT is seeking comment on the project and the preferred way to maintain traffic during construction. Come to review project displays, speak one on one with project staff, and submit your comments.
