Welcome to Johns Creek!
On behalf of the citizens and businesses of Johns Creek, it is a tremendous pleasure to welcome you to our city.
Although we were founded just five years ago, we have already established ourselves as an innovative municipal leader in metro-Atlanta, providing responsive, quality services to our community which values high standards, citizen involvement, and a safe, comfortable lifestyle.
All this is done with one of the lowest municipal tax rates in the metropolitan area.
In Johns Creek, we are always looking for new ways to improve service. We have installed a sophisticated Intelligent Traffic System to refine timing on traffic signals along a major thoroughfare and plan to expand it in the coming years. The Johns Creek Police Department earned accreditation from the national Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement and state certification from the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police, a reflection of the department's consummate professionalism.
We are the proud home to some of the finest schools in the state, including the recently opened, state-of-the-art Johns Creek High School; Northview High School, three-time winner of the Governor's Cup for student achievement; and Chattahoochee High School, a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence.
Our thriving small business community is bolstered by our major employers including, Ciba Vision world headquarters, Emory Johns Creek Hospital, State Farm Insurance regional headquarters, and national headquarters for Macy's Technology Systems and Saia, Inc.
Our citizens and visitors enjoy three vibrant city parks in addition to our Autrey Mill Nature Preserve and Heritage Center, where Georgia's past comes to life on 46 acres of pristine Georgia woodlands. Our longest border is the Chattahoochee River, always available for world-class trout fishing as well as kayaking and canoeing. And don't forget that we are home to some of the finest dining north of Atlanta.
Johns Creek's cultural scene is led by the Johns Creek Symphony Orchestra professional company. We invite you to also experience our growing arts community. Stop by the Johns Creek Arts Center for a class. Visit Performing Arts North in the center of town for a spot of Shakespeare, and while you are there, step next door to the North Atlanta Dance Theatre and perhaps catch area professionals rehearsing for an upcoming production.
With all this to offer and more, it is no surprise that the Atlanta Athletic Club in Johns Creek was chosen as the site of the 2011 Professional Golf Association's Championship. For one week in August, we hosted golf's elite and fans from all over the world. With over 200,000 visitors and round-the-clock coverage, Johns Creek stood tall on an international stage. Watch our "Welcome to Johns Creek" video and learn why we're Atlanta's leading suburban community and the perfect Host City for the PGA Championship.
If you consider our safe and comfortable life-style, exceptional schools and a smart and innovative business community, you will find we offer some of the finest residential and business choices in the country.
But we just like to call it home. Whether you're visiting or relocating, we invite you to stay awhile and experience all that Johns Creek has to offer.
