Brookhaven Mayor J. Max Davis and city council finalized and approved a list of 11 city roads to be resurfaced this year as part of the 2014 paving schedule. The list is based on pavement condition ratings and funding allocated from the 2014 budget, along with a Georgia Department of Transportation local maintenance and improvement grant.

-Ashford Dunwoody Road from Harts Mill Road to South Johnson Ferry Road, SE
-Dresden Drive from Ellijay Road to Apple Valley Road
-Lenox Park Boulevard
-West Nancy Creek from Old Johnson Ferry Road to Ashford Dunwoody Road
-Ashford Road from Dresden Drive to Redding Way
-Caldwell Road from Redding Road to city limits
-Redding Road at Caldwell Intersection
-Fuller Road
-Hermance Drive from Costco Service Drive to Windsor Parkway
-Curtis Drive
-Goodwin Road city limits to East Roxboro Road

Paving has already begun for the 2013 roads listed below.

-Dunwoody Place
-Etowah Drive
-Hunters Brook Court
-Pamela Drive
-Stratfield Drive between Ashford Dunwoody Road and Stratfield Circle

In total, the city will spend $2.2 million on resurfacing and repaving projects for 16 total roads, equivalent to about six miles of roadway.

Paving for the 2014 roads is expected to begin in early summer with each paving project expected to last between five and seven days, depending on weather conditions.

Residents living in close proximity to road work sites will be notified via door hangers in advance of any work. Companies interested in working with the city on these projects should visit the Brookhaven purchasing page for bid postings.

As Brookhaven nears the completion of a city-wide apartment exterior inspection program, city leaders consider the need for additional apartment interior inspections to ensure safe and healthy living conditions for residents.

The city council will address interior inspections in the form of an amendment to the city code. This language will be drafted by the community development department and presented to the city council at a future meeting.

The city took first steps to ensure that multi-family properties comply with life safety, maintenance and fire codes last fall with the launch of a multi-family exterior inspection program.

As of today, a total of 44 multi-family housing complexes have been inspected. Of those, 22 complexes are in full compliance with the international property maintenance code. An additional 22 complexes are listed as “compliance pending,” meaning building owners are working to make the required improvements that will bring the buildings into compliance. Twenty-two complexes remain on the list for initial inspection.

Exterior inspections for all 66 apartment complexes are running ahead of schedule and are expected to be completed by the end of this year.
