Newnan Council

Parkway North changing to Celebrate Life Parkway

by Celia Shortt

Parkway North off Bullsboro Drive in Newnan will be changing to Celebrate Life Parkway following a vote of Newnan City Council on Tuesday.

Cancer Treatment Centers of America at Southeastern Medical Center initially requested the name change at the council’s March 14 meeting, during which the request was forwarded to city staff to research and bring it back before the council at a later date.

Since the March 14 meeting, staff contacted the U.S. Postal Service, police department, fire department, Coweta E-911, and other affected agencies. By the time of Tuesday’s meeting, they had received no objections.

The postal service did request to keep the address of the Newnan Crossing Apartments 151 Parkway North, and allow that entrance road to become a private street of Parkway North.

Staff also contacted the property owners with property adjoining Parkway North and received no objections from them.

The city council voted in favor of the name change and post office’s request, 6-0. Council member Clayton Hicks abstained from the vote because his employer is CTCA.

Part of the property falls under Coweta’s jurisdiction. The Coweta County Board of Commissioners will hear a request for the name change at its meeting on April 1.
