Council of Neighborhoods To Discuss Natural Resource Protection

SANDY SPRINGS, GA — The Sandy Springs Council of Neighborhoods will host a panel of natural resource experts at its 20th annual meeting scheduled for next week at Lost Corner Preserve. The meeting, set for Tuesday, March 13, will tackle one of the City Council’s 2018 priorities, natural resource protection.

Organizers hope to explore what the goals are when it comes to stormwater management, stream protection and monitoring Sandy Springs’ tree canopy. The Council of Neighborhood also seeks to get answers on how will city staff achieve the goals and educate citizens on best practices while at the same time ensuring responsible development.

Of course, homeowners will learn what role they play in the process, since the area’s quality of life is affected by the health of the community’s natural resources (For more news like this, find your local Patch here.
