Members, post announcements in the Chat that don't seem to fit in the Forum such as Happy Birthday, Welcome New Baby, etc. Get "social."

City Facts
City of Mountain Park

 

A variety of information contributes to the Mountain Park lifestyle, whether it's responsibilities (paying taxes, etc.), uniqueness (being a wildlife refuge) or quirks (maps not accurately reflecting city streets!).

Demographics
According to the 2000 Census, Mountain Park has a population of 506, of which 50.4 percent are female and 49.6 percent are male. The median age is 42.2 -- the 35-44 age group is the largest, with a total of 126 people reflecting 24.9 of the population. There are 248 houses in the city.

Wildlife Refuge
Mountain Park is an officially designated wildlife refuge which protects all wildlife including birds, animals and reptiles. A variety of species -- some rare, including Great Blue Herons, Red Tailed Hawks, Eastern Bluebirds and Pileated Woodpeckers -- live here part or all of the year. Recently two white swans have been spotted on Lake Cherful.

City Layout
Most of the streets on the south side of the lakes (the older part of the city) are named after trees such as Cedar, Maple, Spruce, etc. Most streets on the north side are named after birds, like Robin, Thrush and Cardinal. Please note that most published "metro Atlanta" maps (including Internet maps) contain inaccurate drawings of Mountain Park, with references to several non-existent streets. A map of the city can be found in the Mountain Park phone directory.

Garbage and Trash Pick-up
Garbage and recyclable items are picked up on Thursday A.M. All garbage must be bagged before placing in cans. Recycling of newspapers, aluminum cans, tin cans, plastic drink bottles and milk cartons is required of all city residents. Garbage cans and recycling bins can be obtained from City Hall. The city of Mountain Park does not offer yard waste pick-up. Residents are encouraged to recycle all yard debris by mulching and composting. A dumpster for large household items is available quarterly. Large household items should be placed ONLY in the available dumpster.

Water and Sanitation Bills
Mountain park water and sanitation bills are due at the City Hall on the 1st of each month. Late fines are strictly enforced.

City Rentals
The Civic Building and the city pool (during summer months) are available for rent to residents. A refundable deposit and rental fee are required. Contact the city clerk at 770-993-4231 for more information.
