Mayor Jere Wood/City of Roswell
The City of Roswell continues to be a leader in the metro Atlanta area in managing the current and future growth of this wonderful city. Roswell is fortunate to have leaders who concentrate their policy-making into solid guidelines for smart growth and development. The Community Development Department is responsible for carrying out those guidelines. The City has implemented a number of projects that will enhance their community. These projects include receiving a $2.3 million LCI Grant from the Atlanta Regional Commission to fund the redevelopment of the Roswell Midtown from Norcross Street to Commerce Parkway; completion of the Transportation Master Plan; and the Town Square area Design Charettes. The Community Development Department also oversees economic development, building inspection and code enforcement. Roswell’s enforcement of building codes, with respect to apartments, is the model for metro Atlanta.
