The new City Council collaborated to develop a holistic framework designed to support the long-term sustainability of the city during its work retreat in March.
 
“I am proud of the work the City Council put in to address critical issues that will have significant impact on our city well into the future,” said Mayor Mike Bodker.  “From transportation, to business, to developing a location that provides a sense of place and identity for our exceptional community, I am very optimistic about the potential that lies ahead.”
 
City leaders worked together to identify six key focus areas, or goals, to better meet and address the needs of its residents and businesses.  The goals include:  provide a comprehensive transportation network; improve and grow our recreation and parks system; implement an economic development plan; continue to improve government efficiency; continue to support and invest in Public Safety; and enhance our sense of community.
 
The mayor will outline how the Council intends to implement each goal, and the significance of the proactive planning posture the Council adopted to move the city forward as it approaches its tenth year as an incorporated municipality. 
 
The Ninth Annual State of City Address will be held on Friday, April 22, 2015, at the Atlanta Athletic Club, 1930 Bobby Jones Drive.  The event starts at 7 a.m. with a breakfast.  A question-and-answer session will follow the presentation.
