A Bridge to New Possibilities
My name is Andrew Mahaffey and I am working as a volunteer intern this summer for Perimeter Community Improvement Districts to understand and gain real life experience in the business and quasi-governmental communities that I can apply in my studies and after graduation.
"The Perimeter CIDs approach is for a win/win: creating opportunities to maximize resources and capturing economies of scale. Dunwoody is fortunate to have such a caring community, beautiful neighborhoods and a "take action" corporate center. Congratulations on 10 years of success in improvements and enhancements within our corporate community. The PCID has made, and will continue to make, a tremendous and measurable impact."
Ken Wright, Mayor, City of Dunwoody
"I love the Perimeter Center Parkway bridge because it is still so clean and new! There are no exits off the interstate so it is so much less congested and there are no traffic lights that keep me from enjoying the "flyover." Once I'm on it, I can enjoy the view and not worry about traffic."

Perimeter Immediately Drew Me In
My name is Hanna Kroll and I recently graduated from Georgia Southern University. I am currently doing an internship with the Perimeter Community Improvement Districts (PCIDs). When I first arrived in Perimeter one of the main things that I noticed was the landscaping. In my opinion, landscaping is one of the most aesthetically pleasing parts of a city that, when properly maintained, can create a completely different point of view on an area.
"This area has a small community atmosphere; everything we need is right here in our community. The best thing about living in Perimeter is being close to home and all of the great public transportation options – it’s so easy to get to the airport!"
Martha McJilton, Accountant
"I really enjoy the convenience of the sidewalks around the Northpark office complex. It allows me to train for my numerous triathlons and races while at the office...even on my lunch break. I usually get in a quick 10K at lunch and feel recharged for the rest of the day. The paths here are very well maintained which allows me to focus more on my running and the scenery rather than worrying about getting injured by twisting an ankle on a poorly constructed concrete sidewalk. I also love getting out and walking to lunch on a nice day and enjoying the beautiful landscaping around this area"
Jeremy Baker, Structural Engineer
"I am a native Atlantan and have frequented the Perimeter area over the years for various reasons before working here. The PCIDs have made definite improvements in recent years and their continued plans will enhance and enable it to cope with the growth and changes that are inevitable"
Diane Goodwin, Office Manager
"I have worked in the Perimeter Center area for fifteen years and moved to The Manhattan at Perimeter Place over two years ago. I love living and working in this area and walk to work on a daily basis. The improvements that have been made by the PCID over the past several years have been terrific. We are truly blessed to have such an entity in this area"
"I really like the ability I have to get outside and use the sidewalks. It gives me fresh air and a clear mind to go back to work, refreshed"
Sara Key, Graphic Designer
"What sets Perimeter apart from other areas of metro Atlanta is the accessibility. We can live, work and play without feeling too crowded or overbuilt."
AJ Cunningham, Landscape Architect
