Spring seems like it’s on the way and there are a couple of great outdoor things to read about this week in the North Fulton Blog round Up.
Alpharetta Patch reports that soon local parks may be smoke free, if it passes, Alpharetta will join Roswell and Milton in their similar laws.
Arts on the Creek, an annual event on Labor Day in Johns Creek, is gearing up for its 2011 show. Mark it on your calendar now!
On Arbor Day 2011, read what the City of Milton did in conjunction with Summit Hill Elementary….very inspiring.
Also inspiring and touching this week is a blog post by Stephany Fisher of CBS Atlanta News. Fisher tells about a new organization called Will To Live, which was founded by a family in Johns Creek whose all-star son, Will Trautwein, tragically took his life in October. This sensitive issue is an important one, and a must-read for people who have teenagers in their life.
Lee at Roots in Alpharetta hits the nail on the head when talking about an Athens favorite, The Taco Stand, opening up in Alpharetta. UGA grads, let us know what you think about it….or if you’re not feeling up to, read the post from his blog.
There’s a newly formed chapter of the Young Men’s Service League in Milton. Their first meeting was held recently in Milton. Primarily for mothers and their sons who are in eighth grade or higher, YMSL is a national organization that does philanthropic work in their local community.
Tired of spending $1 a day going up and down GA-400? Apparently others are too, and Senator John Albers of Roswell has introduced a bill to end the toll on GA-400.
While we may be hoping for a break on GA-400, estate taxes are on the rise in most states. Check out Law Offices of L. Tracy Teiger, P.C. to see which states have had increases in estate taxes….it may one day affect you if you have relocated to North Fulton and your family is in other state.
On my own blog, I found a couple of charts that show some hope for the Atlanta and North Fulton real estate markets. As the real estate market in Atlanta begins to improve, now may be the maximum buying opportunity.
