entrance signs at the 13 entrance/exit intersections  on federal and state roadways to the community could be updated.

Having arranged in 1990 with then-Commissioner of Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) Hal Rives to provide the highway entrance signs, Massell was pleased GDOT was still able to update the program. Since the original official signs were erected, many have either been worn by weather conditions, damaged in vehicular accidents, or taken by souvenir-hunters.

GDOT Commissioner Russell McMurry had the new signs installed for the benefit of residents and tourists alike, with particular recognition provided for commercial interests.  It is believed Buckhead is the only “Community” in Georgia that has official boundaries, as designated by the Atlanta Regional Commission and the Georgia Legislature.
