RICH ANTICIPATES CONTINUED ECONOMIC GROWTH IN ROME, HOPES FOR ACCURATE COUNT IN 2020 CENSUS

Written by Matt Davis on August 12, 2019. Posted in News/Weather

Efforts are being made to put the world on notice that Rome, Georgia is ‘open for business’; this according to Sammy Rich, City Manager, who asserts that these efforts to attract new business have been fruitful.  Rich indicates that he is particularly optimistic about the potential for growth around the River Arts District located in downtown Rome. 

The East Bend development on the site of the former Kmart on Hicks Drive is also anticipated to provide an economic shot in the arm to the community  when it opens in late 2020. 

And speaking of ’20 – one of local officials’ primary goals for next year is to get an accurate count of residents for the 2020 Census, states Rich, who adds that ‘population matters’ when it comes to recruiting new business to any city. Population growth has been slow in recent years for Rome/Floyd County.   

Rich invites the public to the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Rome City Commission.  It is slated for this evening; the 6:30 pm meeting will be preceded by a caucus at 5 pm at City Hall in downtown Rome. 

Floyd County Commissioners are scheduled to meet this Tuesday.  They will gather in a caucus session at 4 pm, to be followed by their regular meeting at 6 pm at the county’s Administration Building on East 4th Avenue in downtown Rome.  Both are open to the public. 

Both of the Commissions’ agendas are posted online at www.romefloyd.com
