|Self Storage Unit Proposal Denied|
|Posted on Aug 29th, 2019
We are thrilled to announce that our community's tremendous efforts, collaboration, and participation in the CITY OF SANDY SPRINGS PLANNING COMMISSION MEETING this evening has resulted in the Commissioners officially denying the Self Storage Unit Proposal at 8040 Roswell Road.
We extend our thanks to Kathleen Neitzel, who first took action and initiated investigations into this proposal, documented the serious ramifications of the Storage Unit for our neighborhood, and voiced disagreement at the first City Council meeting on our behalf. She has been instrumental in developing a sound strategy for our opposition throughout this process.
We also could not have achieved these results without all of our community friends who took the time to email, call, and write thoughtful letters to our Mayor, City Council members and Commissioners. Thank you all for your commitment, dedication and outreach. Your voices were heard!
Finally, we are grateful for the time and effort put forth by our delegation of Grogans Bluff presenters at tonight's Commission meeting: Susan Witt, Mike McConnell, Kathleen Neitzel, Doug Hubert, Paul Neitzel, Judy Risner, Hunter Bills, & David Price, and, stand-by Speakers, Jeremy Fentress, Stacie Martin, Karl Green, and Thespi Mortimer, who carefully researched and articulated their topics and prepared very compelling talking points. Our speakers' arguments were impressive, targeted, and consistently on point (and never once exceeded the alotted time or overlapped on topics)! A true testament to their oratorical skills and ingenuity. You made Eva proud tonight!
Clearly, our success would not have been possible without the extraordinary representation from and participation of our neighborhood! We share tonight's success with you all, especially knowing and appreciating that we will benefit as a community from our determination long into the future!

|Security Alert - Stolen Mail and Packages|
|Posted on Jul 16th, 2019
We have had a report of someone trying to take a package off someone's front porch. The recipient was out of town and had a neighbor picking up mail and packages and the neighbor saw this and was able to get the package and all is well. We have no further update as to a description of the gentleman that was taking mail. We only have one house that had security footage and that is not clear enough to give a good description. Obviously if you see anyone taking mail out of a mailbox and you know they do not live at the house, please call the police.
What this comes down to is to please pick up your mail daily or have a neighbor do it. Make sure you notify a neighbor when you are expecting packages and may not be home.
Our security director has asked that i provide you all a list of items that might help you deter any potential criminal element: His suggestions are as follows:
We have 4 houses on Grogan's Ferry that mail was found and that was put into your mailbox yesterday.
In addition to the above information, we need some volunteers to help with the Labor Day Party at the clubhouse. Please let either myself or Stacie Martin know if you can help.
As always your HOA board is trying to help each of you keep your neighborhood safe and beautiful. I hope everyone has a great week.

|Grogan’s Ferry Intersection Improvement Project|
|Posted on Mar 28th, 2019
Coming Soon! The Roswell Road / Grogan’s Ferry Intersection (Safety) Improvement Project!
Plans for a major safety-focused upgrade to the Roswell Road/Grogan’s Ferry Road intersection are about to take shape. Implementation of this $5 M project, funded through a 2016 TSPLOST vote, will begin in summer of 2019 with the moving of aerial utilities and is scheduled to be completed in late 2020. With initial concerns about increased traffic flows, compromised entrance aesthetics and Ison Road “cut-throughs,”a Grogan’s Bluff HOA committee worked with responsive City of Sandy Springs (COSS) representatives for months to ensure the neighborhood’s interests were represented. The main Grogan’s Bluff entrance will remain open while work takes place. Major changes included in the project are depicted on the attached rendering and summarized below.
