Traffic Light Synchronization @ Old National & 85/285; Chick-fil-A Expansion Activities

In response to concerns about traffic congestion at Old National Highway and Interstates 85/285, the Georgia Dept. of Transportation has selected a local subcontractor to install video technology to adjust traffic light timing based on actual traffic activity.  In the absence of vehicles, signals would switch from green to red, thus allowing more vehicles on the active paths to pass through without as much delay.

The installation is scheduled to be completed over the early summer months, to coordinate with sidewalk construction currently underway on Old National. 

Professional development is one of the strategic goals for the College Park Customer Service unit.  A "Customer Service Boot Camp" is evolving, aiming to ensure continued professional growth for city staffers, especially in light of new technologies in online billpay, wireless metering, new software & analytics.  The operational boot camp will take place during two consecutive Saturdays - June 17th and June 24th.  

After 37 years of employment with the City of College Park, Keith James - the Director of Recreation, officially retired on Friday, June 2nd.  Two current supervisors will join the organizational structure as acting directors - Emmanuel Rainey and Lance Terry.  They will continue to manage their respective recreation centers, while serving as official points of contact until a formal hiring is made.
A video in Keith's honor can be viewed here.

Chick-fil-A's Corporate Headquarters is expanding in College Park!  Additional land development next to Buffington Road is now underway, and with the present construction, an (alternate) temporary roadway is being utilized to help reduce traffic congestion, as well as to maintain a pristine entrance to its world headquarters.
