SMYRNA UPDATES FROM THE MAYOR

SEPTEMBER

There are many new, exciting things coming to Smyrna this month! We’re cutting the ribbon on the Downtown Splash Pad on September 6th. Come out and see the new space! The groundbreaking for Stillfire Brewery will be held September 13th, and construction of the park between Atlanta Road and Community Center has begun. It will be completed around Thanksgiving.

Thank you once again for the opportunity to represent our community as Mayor of Smyrna.

JUNE

What gets me up in the morning is helping others, and Laura and I created Support Smyrna to do just that. This non-profit 501c3 helps those in need right here in our Smyrna Community, including veterans, seniors, children, families, and others. Support Smyrna has helped hundreds of Smyrna residents with food, clothing, housing, medicine, after school care, and many other needs, and the number of success stories continues to grow.

Thank you once again for the opportunity to represent our community as Mayor of Smyrna.

MAY

One of our biggest areas of focus has been economic development, especially with the downtown area. We are in the midst of a “downtown refresh,” providing new, interactive open space for families to enjoy. This will return energy to the downtown area and make it a powerful economic engine in our city once again.

We are creating two new parks, and Stillfire Brewing will break ground this summer. The parks have plazas and an interactive green space, seating areas, shade structures, new trees, local art, a water feature, and both will have a stage. The ribbon cutting for the first park is planned for June 10th, the same day as our first summer concert. We will also begin construction on a parking deck for downtown in the winter of 2023, which will make it easier to access the area.

Thank you once again for the opportunity to represent our community as Mayor of Smyrna.

171 Concord Rd. SE., Smyrna, GA 30082.
