The Marietta Daily Journal – Acworth looks to future with quality of life renovations

ACWORTH — A bus system tailored toward senior citizens, a new pedestrian overpass and a potential hotel development could be coming to Acworth, Mayor Tommy Allegood revealed at the city’s biannual town hall, but these plans are still in the early stages of development.

The quality of life in the city, he said, has made Acworth the ideal place to live for people of all ages.

Especially those 65 and older.

“With 78 million baby boomers out there, by the time we get to the year 2020, one in every five citizens in the city of Acworth will be over 65. … most communities haven’t even thought about how they are going to be ready for this aging population. We are planning for the future,” Allegood said at the town hall Wednesday night.
