The Acworth City Council is set to vote on potential expansion to one of the city's recreation areas during their Thursday evening meeting.

An agenda item up for consideration for the July 17 meeting would see the city send applications to the Department of the Army for permits that would allow for an expansion of Logan Farm Park. The measure would also allocate $160,000 for the project.

The $1.5 million project will see the city add 15 acres to the 120-acre park, and add a playground, walking trails, and additional parking. Part of the project cost will be shoulder by 2011 SPLOST funds.

Renovations may also be coming to the Acworth Sports Complex. If the council approves the measure, the city will enter into a contract with Archer Restoration Services to update the restrooms near the northern parking lot and the Old McEver Road entrance.

The terms of the $30,000 contract will have the city contributing half, and Archer Resoration Services donating $15,000 to the city in exchange for sponsorship rights at the facility.

Another item on the agenda would establish a new city position, that of senior recreation coordinator. The new coordinator would work in the city's Parks and Recreation Department. The agenda item would also allow for the update of the assistant recreation coordinator and recreation coordinator job descriptions.

The July 17 meeting of the Acworth City Council is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. at Acworth City Hall with a public hearing on the city's proposed millage rate increase.
