Alpharetta-Roswell Herald

Alpharetta-Roswell Herald The Alpharetta-Roswell Herald covers news most important to the residents of Alpharetta and Roswell including school, high school sports, city council, business and more.

The Alpharetta-Roswell Herald is one of the weekly newspapers in the Herald family of publications. Thirty years ago, Ray and Christina Appen bought a bi-monthly newspaper in Alpharetta called The ReVue, left their positions at The Miami Herald and moved to run the newspaper. In the following years, they renamed the paper The Revue & News and increased the publishing frequency to weekly. Following the success of The Revue & News, the Appens started publishing three more weekly papers, a monthy women’s magazine and a quarterly relocation guide. They even expanded outside of publishing to social media management, design and graphics services, digital newsletter management and web- site services. However, the core business remains community news publishing.

To whom it May Concern: Finding out that a multi million dollar tennis complex is planned just down the street from my neighborhood is disappointing. A little over a year ago we were having "town hall meetings" to discuss the closing of the Super Target on Holcombe Bridge, along with many other vacant properties. Comp USA has been closed for 12 years and to this day remains vacant. The panel continually asked "what do the residents of East Roswell want?" I don't believe one person stood and asked for this. That being said, how many people on the panel in those meetings knew about these plans and did not mention them? This is not a plan that happens over night. What studies have been done to confirm that this could be a successful viable business? We could not keep Kohls, Super Target and many other stores in the black, how is a tennis center with 135 courts going to survive? I have grown up in Atlanta and play tennis and have witnessed many complexes fail. Who remembers Peachtree World of Tennis, located off Holcomb Bridge, this failed. The state of the art Tennis Center for the Olympics, gone. Have you visited the North Fulton Tennis center, this needs major improvement. Along Old Alabama there are numerous neighborhoods with tennis courts, as well as East Roswell Park. USTA has sent out a mass email telling their members to show up at the meeting wearing their tennis outfits, have they made a decision to move the US Open from Flushing NY to Roswell Ga? After all, the National Tennis Center in Flushing only has 22 courts and sits on 46.5 acres. Wimbledon has a total of 53 courts and sits on 42 acres. You are calling this an international destination, however you say there will not be any stadium seating with what appears to be very little parking. Why did the citizens of Roswell find out about this in the media? I'm sure some will say East Roswell doesn't like change, that is simply not true. East Roswell residents are generally "told" what we can and can't have or what we don't want. We are forever put on the defense. I hope that this is not a ploy that you are asking for 60 acres and "settle" for less. Perhaps instead of having the meeting at city hall you should move it to the purposed site so that everyone fully understands the location and green space that will be taken from the citizens of Roswell. Many promises were made that are now being pushed aside for nothing more than greed. Jeannie Beck Roswell Resident for 25 years
