Neighborhood Gathering Sponsored by LNA

On February 27th, the LNA sponsored its first "neighborhood gathering." The gathering was held for three communities located between GA Highway 20 South and Simonton Road. Fifteen residents from Park Place, St. Lawrence Plantation, and Waverly Woods attended the meeting. Tom Combs, LNA President and Beverly Dryden, LNA Director, assisted with sign-ins, name tags, and introduction of speakers.

Gerald Martin, LNA Board Member, reviewed the Park Place construction project that was approved by the City Council. The project is for $1.6 million for sidewalks, lighting, drainage, curbs and gutters, and traffic calming. Mr. Martin also encouraged residents to get involved with the Neighborhood Watch program.

Tom Combs Keith Roche

Keith Roche, Lawrenceville City Councilman, provided excellent background and insight on the recent Council decision to contract out the commercial code envorcement ordinances. Mr. Roche expects a turn around in code enforcement. The project is to begin immediately.

One of the objectives of the meeting was to assist and encourage the residents to form an "Information Tree" for dissemination of information and also provide a venue to neighborhood concerns.

Gerald Martin Bill Perkins

Bill Perkins, LNA Board Member and fellow Park Place resident, encouraged residents to find a way to keep their neighborhood informed. Many in attendance committed to reach out to their neighbors by collecting contact information. LNA provided the initial communications by mailing flyers and letters to all residents. Follow up meetings will be held at the Ingles store on Grayson Highway. We thank Ingles for using their cafe as a meeting place.

Lawrenceville Neighborhood Alliance

It's Time to Spring into Action! 

According to City of Lawrenceville Councilman Bob Clark , there are a dozen good neighbor practices that promote harmony and pride in our community. These practices keep our neighborhood clean, neat and enhance property values.

Good practices make good neighbors. 

1. Smile and wave to other drivers or pedestrians.

2. Keep speed in the neighborhood under the speed limit of 25 mph.

3. Place trash for pick-up at the top of your driveway on the evening before or day of pickup. Pick up newspapers each morning.

4. Retrieve garbage cans the afternoon of pickup and store out of sight.

5. On a weekly basis, mow and trim around trees, driveway edges, and the street curb.

6. Keep your home and mailbox repaired and painted. Place house number so that it is visible from the street.

7. Park only on hard surfaces in the front of your home and on hard or gravel surfaces to the side or rear of your home.

8. Keep your driveway in good repair.

9. Do not park routinely or overnight on neighborhood streets.

10. Park work trucks at work, no in residential driveways.

11. Keep radio, television, or powered music sounds inside your home or very low outside your home.

12. Store household or yard care equipment and material out of sight.


Good practices make neighborhoods shine.
