In 2005, after a long battle to get there, Sandy Springs finally became a city, and it has not stopped growing since. Now one of the largest cities in Georgia, it has attracted thousands of new residents and hundreds of new businesses over the last decade. It has the distinct pleasure of sitting along both sides of Interstate 285, or the busy road known to locals as the “Perimeter,” which earned its nickname because it forms a circle around Atlanta. This means residents can take advantage of both city and suburban living without ever leaving Sandy Springs.
No matter what you want, the city has something to offer. High-rise condos and ample business opportunities, including the headquarters of several Fortune 500 companies and other large corporations, are perfect for busy professionals. Fun parks and excellent schools are perfect for young families. The shopping, dining, and entertainment opportunities scattered throughout are perfect for everyone. Proximity to Atlanta is another reason why people choose to call Sandy Springs home.
Sandy Springs residents fought hard to create their city, and since its incorporation, they have proven themselves as community-oriented, business-minded, and friendly to anyone who moves to the area. The city’s unique local government is even becoming a model for cities throughout the world because of its effectiveness.
