SpecialFrom left, Sandy McGrew and Jo Ellen Wilson will be holding a town hall meeting on August 20 to answer community questions and start a discussion about the development of Ward 1.

Canton City Council members Jo Ellen Wilson and Sandy McGrew are holding a town hall meeting to address concerns of residents living, working or affected by Ward 1, which includes Riverstone Parkway, Ga. Highway 140, Reinhardt College Parkway and surrounding areas. Topics addressed at the meeting will include specific concerns from attendees, community development, Ga. Highway 140, public safety, capital projects including trails, parking deck and paving as well as an explanation on how the planning and zoning process works. “Development is starting to pick up after the ‘bad years’ and residents have gotten so used to the green spaces and open areas,” McGrew said in a statement. “It’s hard for me to see, too. It’s easy to forget that the properties were planned and zoned 20 or more years ago and with the market getting better developers and landowners are wanting to build and recoup their investments.” The council members said they hope that by providing a town hall meeting, they can let residents know they put effort and care into every decision they make as well as answer direct questions from Canton residents — not just Ward 1 residents. The Ward 1 Town Hall meeting is at 6 p.m. on Aug. 20 at Chattahoochee Technical College, 1645 Bluffs Parkway. The meeting is open to all residents, but to see what Ward you fall within, visit cantonga.gov/gov/city_council/city_council_ward_map.htm.
