Gwinnett Daily Post | Peachtree Corners mayor reflects on city’s first year, future

A year ago, Peachtree Corners was a neighborhood. What a difference a year has made.

On July 1, 2012, the northwestern Gwinnett enclave became the county’s newest and biggest city, and newly elected leaders had the task of starting a government from scratch.

In the past 12 months, the mayor and council have hired three city employees, opened a City Hall, started up services and even purchased the city’s first piece of real estate.

Leaders even managed to zero out their property tax rate due to unexpectedly high revenues from business licenses and other fees.

In a Q&A with senior writer Camie Young, Mayor Mike Mason looks back on Peachtree Corners’ first year and what to expect in year two.
