SSCN Annual Meeting
"ReNEWing Roswell Road" News Coverage
Our May 13 Annual Meeting at Heritage Sandy Springs was a great success. The developer panel conversation on "ReNewing Roswell Road" had noted developers discuss the challenges and economic benefits for improving the Roswell Road corridor inside I-285 and north of Abernathy. The vibrancy of this corridor is vital to our neighborhoods and is important to our community and our property values. There was also a short business meeting and election of SSCN Directors. Thank you to those who could attend.

Who's Protecting Our Neighborhoods?
The Mayor and City Council's Major Votes that Impacted Our Neighborhoods
Since the city's inception in December 2005, our Mayor and City Council (MCC) have voted on hundreds of items with outcomes that are shaping Sandy Springs. In its continuing effort to provide information to the residents of our city, Sandy Springs Council of Neighborhoods (SSCN) has developed this "Major Votes" document to illustrate the voting records of the Mayor and City Council on the items that have affected our city's protected neighborhoods. Major Votes 2010-2013
The SSCN "Get Smart Sandy Springs" document first created in 2008 lists every neighborhood related vote taken by the City Council from the city's inception.
