The Fritz: After five years of traveling the East Coast and steadily building a reputation as a live act not to be missed, Asheville music ambassadors, The Fritz, played a strong year of sets showing thousands of new fans what throngs of Southeastern music lovers have known for years: The Fritz likes to get funky. As much as they take their funk seriously, the band takes it’s rock-honed songwriting just as seriously, but the well crafted song is not the only final product in the live forum. Individually, the members of The Fritz are masters of improvisation, carefully weaving their personality into each performance. While the music may range from hard driving soul to progressive rock, a common thread of The Fritz’s passionate energy reigns true in each show. Whether live or in the studio, the band creates an energetic dance party every time. --- Celebrate the warm weather as City of Roswell kicks off the 2017 Riverside Sounds Concert Series, May 6.

Help shape the future of transit in our region and throughout Fulton County by attending the Fulton County Transit Master Plan Public Information and Input Meeting on Thursday, June 29, 2017, at 5 p.m., in Room 220 at Roswell City Hall, 38 Hill Street. At the request of the Fulton County Board of Commissioners and the cities of Fulton County outside of the City of Atlanta, the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) is developing a Fulton County Transit Master Plan. The master plan will include a review of each city’s community and economic development strategies, analysis of existing transit services and needs, and development of a financial model to determine the potential for expanded transit services within Fulton County. Two rounds of public meetings will be held to provide information and gather public input. The first round of public meetings—of which Roswell’s June 29th meeting is the first—will focus on each city’s plans for the future, the potential role of transit within that vision, and public needs and desires related to transportation and transit. A second round of public meetings will likely be held in the Fall of 2017 to review the community vision, summarize the transit market analysis and needs, and provide an overview of existing and potential transit services. For more information, please contact Roswell Department of Transportation at 770-594-6420.
