​​​​​The billboard locations are the result of a settlement between the City and billboard operators. The City did not hire an expert experienced in negotiating against billboard companies.

Questionable actions by decision-makers are eroding the Safety, Integrity and Community character of Johns Creek.


Perhaps most offensive is the blatant disrespect
