FRONTIER TRAIL PARKING INFORMATION

The City Council of Chamblee has passed an ordinance that prohibits parking on the north side, or Seaver Family Sports Complex side, of Frontier Trail from Shallowford Road thru Pioneer Court. That area is now a designated "pick-up and drop-off zone" for St. Pius X. Frontier Trail is the street that bisects the campus and the Seaver Family Sports Complex. Please make note of this change and be aware that St. Pius X is not responsible if your vehicle is ticketed or towed. Thank you.
