Grantville is on the move

Grantville is moving forward!

We now have a "First Class" Police Department. The splash park opens this month. We have a new, professional full-time parks and recreation director.

The recreation explosion is just beginning with the splash park, and now an all-day summer camp with great activities for children that now caters to working parents. The movie industry has discovered our charming town and has put us on the big screen. Tourists from all over the world are making Grantville a stop on their vacation. While we work with the Chamber of Commerce and the Coweta County Development Authority trying to bring business and industry to Grantville, we are also improving the quality of life here at home.

Our efforts are positive. Improve the quality of life for families and attract business, that's our goal. We have the infrastructure, all utilities, sewer, affordable land and labor. We have a capable, qualified team of city employees. Volunteers have come forward to help and the citizens have chosen new leadership.

That's why you see change, and more is coming. As we come out of this recession, Grantville is poised to take advantage of opportunity. The phone is ringing and we are responding. Here you have all the benefits of Coweta County schools. You have access to the interstate. You can live in a charming small town where the people driving by not only wave, but you know them. No traffic lights.

Yet 10 minutes away is our flourishing county seat ready to accommodate any need from government, medical care or shopping. Find out why our population doubled in 10 years! Yes, I love Grantville, and you will, too. Raise your expectations for Grantville and come see us.

Jim Sells

Mayor of Grantville
