As we move into February, we look forward to all that this year will bring. Right now, the city team, with our community partners, is planning a year of amazing experiences with unforgettable events and programs, as well as improvements to our services for residents and businesses. One of those improvements is the current renovations at City Hall, which will help the team better serve our great community. City Hall will remain open during this time, and renovations are expected to conclude midsummer. With that in mind, this year we are embracing the wonderful quality of life we have here in Acworth.
In 2023, we’re excited to celebrate Acworth as the place we call home. We are an award-winning city and the best city in which to live and do business. Because of our great quality of life, we’re ranked as one of the safest places to live in Georgia. Our friends and family are here, and we have some amazing partners and faith-based organizations in our community that give so much back to the city through programs and volunteering. We have a wonderful parks and recreation department overseeing our many green spaces, including four beaches on two lakes and 10 miles of walking trails.
Our strong local economy is supported by the fastest-growing business association in the region, and we value and support our businesses’ investment in the city. Our dedicated city team delivers exceptional services to our residents and businesses. Acworth is a restaurant and shopping destination with an excellent reputation.
We hope you enjoy calling Acworth home as much as we do, and we’re glad you’re here because home is where the heart is!
It’s almost time for the Special Olympics Polar Plunge. The fundraiser, hosted annually by the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Georgia, will be Feb. 25 at Cauble Park. The Acworth Police Department will have a team — The Right to Remain Frozen — plunging, and members have been working since last year to raise $15,000 for Special Olympics Georgia (SOGA). If you’re able, please consider donating to this wonderful cause to help support free year-round sports training for SOGA’s 26,620 amazing athletes. You can donate at www.classy.org/team/461467.
