Republican Todd Burkhalter, Candidate for City Council (Post 2) announces his support for a ban on new low-end apartment developments in Johns Creek.
JOHNS CREEK, GA (October 28, 2015) First-time candidate Todd Burkhalter is committed to offering real solutions to the problems our community faces. As traffic continues to worsen, we must find solutions that can be implemented by the City Council. We don’t need additional high-priced consultants to “study” our traffic to know that we cannot continue down the same path and expect our traffic to improve. Burkhalter proposes a permanent ban on all the future low-end apartment complexes that already fill our community.
Burkhalter stated, “The impact of bringing more high-density, low-income apartment complexes would be devastating to this community.” He continued, “It’s time we actually do something to prevent this rather than continued talk with no action. Let’s enact a permanent ban that cannot be easily overturned by future council members and resolve this issue!”
Placing a permanent ban on new apartment communities will not only improve traffic, it will also reduce crime, and prevent our first responders from being overloaded. Additionally, it will force current apartment companies to improve and renovate as complexes become dated and rundown. This prevents apartment owners from simply moving down the street to build new developments, leaving the old to become low-end and unsightly developments.
