2014 June Ayr, Scotland Exchange/ Chorale Trip
The sister city partnership also developed as part of the founding of the educational program Global Achievers in Newnan, the location of their state headquarters. The sister city pact was established in order for citizens of both cities to experience many cultural, educational, tourism, and economic opportunities.
"For 16 years we have celebrated our connection with our sister city Ayr, Scotland, and the banners hanging around the square during the month of July are a small reminder of this special relationship. The Newnan Cultural Arts Commission is very excited the Masterworks Youth Chorale has the opportunity to visit Ayr in June, 2014 and represent the citizens of Newnan,” said Dave Dorrell, chair Newnan Cultural Arts Commission.
For more information and details on the exchange trip in 2014 to Ayr, Scotland, please contact John Thrasher at 770.328.3991

Municipal Building Redevelopment Survey link click here. - This survey has CLOSED.
The citizens of Newnan/Coweta County recently re-approved an extension of the Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) to fund specific capital improvement projects. A new Public Safety Complex for the City of Newnan was included in that list of projects. The new complex will provide space for the Police Department Headquarters and Municipal Court. As a result, the City of Newnan’s Police Department will be vacating its current location in the Municipal Building at 25 Jefferson Street. The reuse of the vacated space has been identified as a potential redevelopment project. The successful redevelopment of the Municipal Building relies upon the clear identification of potential future uses.

Meets the 1st Wednesday of every month but time and date varies depending on project For more information on the commission and its events please contact City Liaison Gina Snider at firstname.lastname@example.org or 770-253-2682 ext 203
