The City of Acworth is hosting an informal meeting to display and discuss the city's proposals for new projects that could come to fruition if Cobb County voters decide to extend a sales tax for another six years.

Acworth City Hall will host the meeting on Thursday, July 10 at 6:30 p.m., a week before the Mayor and Board of Aldermen must submit a complete list of projects to the county.

Cobb County has made it known that it will seek an extension on the one penny SPLOST for roads, parks, and public safety, also known as SPLOST 2016.

If voters during the Nov. 4 elections decide to continue the tax, the City of Acworth anticipates a total revenue of $20.8 million dollars, which would then be put to work on various improvement projects in the city.

The top project on the city's list is the construction of a new, $11 million community center. The city would also like to replace the pavilions at Cauble Park and make improvements on Old 41 between Nance and Nowlin
roads. 

A full list of project proposals may be found here.
