The City of Johns Creek completed its Johns Creek CARES Business Grant program which provided more than $2.5 million in emergency fund support of Johns Creek businesses hardest hit by the significant, temporary loss of revenue caused by the pandemic.
Since the program’s inception, the city has provided grant aid to more than 500 eligible businesses amounting to more than $2,500,000 being put back into the community. Local business applicants completed forms and documentation to provide grant eligibility requirements. Program-eligible businesses received a $5,000 grant for help with payroll, rent, inventory, overhead, and a variety of other costs incurred because of coronavirus pandemic shutdowns and constraints.
A wide variety of businesses were helped by the JC CARES Grant funding including restaurants, tutoring programs, dental offices, law offices, and retail stores. The majority of the businesses which applied were in the restaurant, retail, and beauty industries, accounting for 69.7% of the applications.
“The spread of COVID-19, along with state-issued restrictions had both an immediate and lingering effect on the businesses and economy of Johns Creek,” said Mayor Mike Bodker. “The JC CARES Grant program was created with the hope of bringing some relief to several of the city’s hardest hit industries.”
Businesses were deemed eligible for the grant based on specific criteria set forth by the City Council. Businesses must have been in operation in Johns Creek prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, have a current business license with the city, currently be in operation, have under 250 employees, have a commercial business location (in-home businesses were not eligible), public interfacing, and were impacted by the Georgia Governor’s Executive Orders.
The JC CARES Grant program was approved by the Mayor and City Council in November 2020 and adopted through an Inter-governmental Agreement (IGA) with Fulton County. The IGA formalized the city’s pro rata allocation of the CARES Act funds in the amount of $3,528,706. $3,000,000 of the funding received from Fulton County was specifically allocated by City Council to assist the Johns Creek community.
These $5,000 grants provided businesses with the means to make payroll, rent, utilities, purchase supplies, and keeps their doors open a little longer,” said Bodker. “While we are optimistic about the future, we are still committed to using every available resource to its maximum potential to protect our residents and support our businesses.”

Rezoning for a new residential development in Johns Creek is expected to settle a three-year lawsuit between the developer and the city, but nearby residents say the new homes could be flooded if alocal dam fails.
The Providence Group plans to build 128 detached single-family homes and townhouses on 24 acres along State Bridge Road. Johns Creek City Council approved rezoning the land during its July 26 meeting.
Before council approval, nearby homeowners spoke in opposition of the new homes, saying part of the development will be located in the breach zone for the dam connected to Spratlin Lake.
A breach zone is the area that would be flooded in a worst-case scenario if a dam were to fail, according to the Department of Natural Resources.
“If you allow them to build these homes, they’re going to be in our breach zone and they’re going to get inundated with water should we have the 100-year-flood,” said Scott Leeds with Waterford Country Lake homeowners association. “We’re really concerned about that.”
The 22-acre lake is connected to the Daniels and Thomaselli dam which has a Category I classification with the Department of Natural Resources. That means if the dam fails and major flooding occurs, there would be probable loss of life downstream, David Griffin, an engineer with the DNR Environmental Protection Division, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Waterford, Lakehill and Donamere subdivisons own the dam and Spratlin Lake, Leeds said. They hired the firm Carter Engineering to look into the breach zone area and dam failure concerns.
Leeds said The Providence Group development should either not build in the space where the new homeowners would be at risk, or spend the $1.6 million that the three subdivisions were told it would cost to reconfigure the dam area.
Council members approved rezoning for new development after Mayor Mike Bodker pointed out the city hasn’t officially determined whether new homes would be built in the dam breach zone. If the city determines the development is building in the breach area, The Providence Group wouldn’t be approved for a land disturbance permit, which is required before construction can begin, city officials said.
Council members said the rezoning for the development resolves a lawsuit brought by the developer and nine homeowners who joined the litigation that started in 2018. That year, City Council denied rezoning for a more dense housing plan that included different styles of townhomes totaling 208 units on 23 acres of land.

JOHNS CREEK, GA — As coronavirus cases and hospitalizations spike throughout the United States, many retailers in Johns Creek and other cities are re-implementing mask mandates to help curb the spread of coronavirus.
New mask requirements come as the highly contagious delta variant continues to sweep across the nation. The variant, which originated in India, now accounts for more than 93 percent of all new cases in the United States, according to data released Wednesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Many retailers attribute revised mandates to the CDC's new mask guidance, which recommends all vaccinated and unvaccinated people wear masks in public indoor settings or when in areas with "substantial" or "high" transmission; however, most stop short of requiring fully vaccinated customers to wear face coverings.
The CDC defines "substantial" transmission as 50 to 99.99 cases per 100,000 people over seven days, while "high" transmission is defined as more than 100 cases per 100,000 during that span.
Here's a look at which retailers in Johns Creek now require masks and who should wear them, according to a list compiled by AARP and various news outlets:

Ware County has never won a state title. Cambridge has never a region championship. Their elusive goals came into focus Friday night in the ninth week of the Georgia high school football season.
If it weren’t already apparent, Ware County made it clear that defending champions – even Warner Robins – will have a tough time repeating this season as the Gators ended the Demons’ 15-game win streak, the state’s longest, with a 29-21 Class 5A victory.
It was Ware County’s first victory over a No. 1-ranked team from the same classification since beating Northside-Warner Robins in the 2012 semifinals, and it avenged Ware County’s 22-19 loss to Warner Robins in 2020. Ware County had been 0-3 all-time against the Demons.
Ware County moved to 6-1 overall and 2-0 in Region 1 - often considered Class 5A’s strongest - while Warner Robins is 6-1, 0-1.
All eight of 2020′s defending champions now have lost at least once.
Cambridge, a north Fulton County school that opened in 2012, won the evening’s most riveting game, a 48-47 overtime victory over Johns Creek. Zach Harris scored on a keeper for a 48-41 lead, and Brooks Morley blocked Johns Creek’s extra point to finish it.
Cambridge (6-0, 4-0) emerged as Region 7′s only unbeaten team while Johns Creek fell to 5-2, 3-1.
Otherwise, it was a relatively tame Friday. A week after a season-high 10 unranked teams beat ranked opponents, the top 10 had their revenge, going 40-1 against the unranked.
The lone upset, really a toss-up, came when Riverwood beat No. 10 Creekview 35-28 in another game in the closely contested Cambridge-Johns Creek region. Riverwood and Creekview entered with 5-1 overall and 2-1 region records.
Five other games matched ranked teams.
In Class 7A, No. 3 North Cobb beat No. 6 Walton 51-29 in Region 3. North Cobb is the region’s defending champion.
In 5A, No. 2 Cartersville beat No. 8 Blessed Trinity 49-21. Cartersville is now 8-0 and potentially the new No. 1 team if Warner Robins drops from that position in Sunday’s rankings.
In other games between ranked teams, No. 4 Bleckley County beat No. 6 Northeast 9-6 in Region 3-2A; No. 5 Eagle’s Landing Christian beat No. 7 Pacelli 41-0 in Region 4-A Private; and No. 2 Brooks County beat No. 10 Charlton County 42-7 in Region 2-A Public.
