Using this Site / Accessibility

The City of Johns Creek, Ga., creates and provides its official website – www.JohnsCreekGA.gov – as a service to its residents, businesses and visitors. Below are a few tips to make it easier to use the site. Thank you for visiting us!

Accessibility

The City of Johns Creek is committed to making our website accessible to special needs of individuals as addressed by the Americans with Disabilities Act. We continue to work to make JohnsCreekGA.gov compliant with Section 508 and the Priority One checkpoints in the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative.

While we are committed to making our website accessible, we recognize that not all of our pages may be ADA compliant at this time. Sometimes, complex materials may make accessibility difficult. If you use assistive technology and the format of any material on our website interferes with your ability to access the information, please contact us at so that accommodations can be made. We appreciate your help in identifying areas on the site where we need to improve.

In some instances we've included Portable Document Format (.pdf) files for forms and official documents until we are able to develop more accessible options. For information on Adobe Acrobat PDF accessibility, please visit the Adobe Acrobat Accessibility web page.

Recent versions of popular web browsers tend to display our pages more accurately, as newer browsers comply with the HTML and CSS standards used to develop this site. At minimum we attempt to support the following Internet browsers: Firefox 3+, Chrome 10+, Opera 10+ and Internet Explorer 7+.

We continue to research solutions that might make JohnsCreekGA.gov even more accessible to the diverse population of our City, as we maintain and grow our web site.

Get free document readers

Whenever possible, information on JohnsCreekGA.gov is published in HTML to eliminate the need for additional software.

However, the website includes links to some non-web files which require additional software. To view this content, you need to download the FREE viewers from the vendor's websites, below:



Zoom in/out to enlarge/shrink site size

If you're having problems viewing the text on this site, it's easy to adjust the size for easier reading using your browser's zoom feature. As every browser is slightly different, follow your browser's directions to zoom in/out.

Print site pages

JohnsCreekGA.gov is a "print friendly" site, with built-in print styles, whatever internet browser you're using. Become familiar with your browser's features and follow its directions for printing site pages.

Use search

GoogleOne of the simplest ways to find information on our site is using the Google Custom Search box in the upper right corner of each page. Type in a few key words and you'll be directed to the most pertinent pages for that information.

Our A-Z Index is another way to find information. Sometimes, looking here first can help direct you to a particular subject area when you're not sure what to call your inquiry.

Sign up for city newsletters

The City offers several types of e-news. We encourage you to subscribe to all city updates, because they are not duplicative in content, and are a quick way to stay up-to-date on city news, activities and events.

Your privacy is important to us. We will use your email address only to send you our updates and communications. We will not share it with any organizations, businesses or individuals except as required by the State of Georgia's Open Records Act. Please read our Email Privacy Policy.

The City of Johns Creek uses " Safe Unsubscribe," which guarantees the permanent removal of your email address from its mailing lists. In each email you receive, there will be a link to unsubscribe or change areas of interest.
