Vision 2013: Our community better off than most

There are people and businesses in our community still hurting because of the economy. The slow recovery has been painful for many. That said, overall our community economically is better than most.

Today, The Newnan Times-Herald publishes its annual special report — Vision 2013 — a look at the state of our community. You will find Vision 2013 stories and photos throughout the A section of the newspaper today, on the Focus in Education pages in the B section and throughout the D section.

Most of these stories have an upbeat tone. That’s because Coweta County, Newnan and the other towns in Coweta have a lot of positive things going on.

You recall the new hospitals and expanded health care facilities that have opened in the community within the past year. Those have been significant positives for our economy and for the quality of health care in the area.

There are new college campuses being built and planned in the community. There’s a new conference center, new road construction is planned, and other construction has been picking up in the community.

The public sector — county government, city governments, our school system — all are being operated efficiently and are not facing the dire cutbacks that have made the news in communities around us.

We encourage our readers to spend some time reading the Vision 2013 special report. The news articles will give you an updated glimpse of what’s happening in our community today and in the months ahead.

As you will read, our community is better off than most.
