Happy New Year, Acworthians! On behalf of our great city team, we are excited to welcome 2017 and share in this new year with our friends and neighbors. We pray that 2017 will be a wonderful year for you and your family. We are blessed to live in a community full of caring, hardworking and honest citizens who enrich our quality of life just by being a part of our community. We are preparing for 2017 and look forward to sharing our ideas with you and your families.
We are getting ready for the annual State of the City presentation at 11:30 a.m. Feb. 2 at the Acworth Business Association meeting at NorthStar Church. This year’s theme is “Building Community.” The luncheon is $15 for members and $25 for non-members. You are invited. The presentation is an opportunity to celebrate our community’s extraordinary achievements in the last year and to lay out the vision for what will be accomplished in the coming year.
If you are a business owner, manage a nonprofit organization or operate a church in the community and are not familiar with the Acworth Business Association, we encourage you to get involved. The Acworth Business Association connects, informs, promotes and gives. Through a nominal fee of $90 per year, your membership will give you access to a network of organizations that support each other in the community. As a city, we are excited to see what all is ahead for this organization that is led by a special group of people in our community.

The new Logan Farm Park Expansion is officially open! We are thrilled to have this additional 14 acres incorporated into the existing park. Logan Farm Park is 120 acres that encompasses the parks formally known as Tanyard Creek and Terrace Drive. It includes a playground, fishing pond and nature trail that connects to Cowan Road, Terrace Drive, Cherokee Street, School Street and McClain Circle. This new expansion adds additional multi-use pathways, open green space, a destination playground, a group pavilion, a restroom facility and parking. We can’t wait to see this new space being enjoyed by the community!
