Alpharetta- a Georgia Green Community

John Monson of the Alpharetta City Council forwarded the following press release yesterday issued by the Atlanta Regional Commission, and I wanted to share it with you!

The City of Alpharetta has been awarded bronze-level Green Community Certification by the Atlanta Regional Commission. The certification as an ARC Green Community is the result of policies that the City Council adopted earlier this year, along with hard work by our Community Development, Engineering/Public Works and Finance Departments. These efforts have made Alpharetta a recognized leader in environmental stewardship and will have lasting positive impacts on our community. The policies implemented to earn this designation make sound fiscal sense and provide a return on taxpayer dollars in addition to being the right things to do for our environment. Alpharetta is one of only 3 communities in Georgia to earn this designation.

Congratulations to My Sweet Home, Alpharetta! It's a great, GREEN place to live!
