The City of South Fulton will be officially named Renaissance, GA. The council narrowed down 20 names to make the decision. Next, a zip code will be selected but how and when has not been determined. There is a lot more to come shortly.
The City of South Fulton formed after voters decided on November 8, 2016. The newly named Renaissance, GA will include nearly 100,000 residents. Hopefully, now the tax dollars will benefit those residents. Moreover, the residents hope for positive changes in the area.
Renaissance, GA is Georgia’s 5th largest city. City residents elected Mayor Bill Edwards into position on April 18, 2016, along with seven city council members. Mayor Bill Edwards hopes to reduce crime and stop illegal dumping in the area. Residents would like to see more jobs in the area, better roads, street lights added to South Fulton Parkway, and a dedicated police and fire department.
Recently the only new developments seen in the area have been industrial warehouses. The warehouses create jobs for the area but congest the streets with 18 wheelers. Residents can’t understand why Jones Rd. which leads to Renaissance Elementary, Renaissance Middle, and Langston Hughes High School is unpaved and littered with debris from dumping. On the flip side, it’s a great relief that road work on Cedar Grove Rd has commenced. The multiple potholes were damaging vehicles and had a bad appearance.
On a brighter note, the real estate market is on an upward trend. Short sales and foreclosures are lower year-over-year which is a sigh of relief. Take a look at foreclosure sites such as HUD, and you will not find a plethora of listings in the Fulton County area. However, if you do a quick search for homes on SoldByJones Realty’s website, you’ll find a host of new construction and re-sale homes listed. Renaissance, GA, Georgia’s 5th largest city, should be the next city you call home.
