Marietta At A Glance
Moving in Marietta
To the outside observer, life in Marietta, Georgia may seem too good to be true. But as the 61,000 residents of Marietta already know, this thriving community has earned national recognition time and again. At All My Sons Moving & Storage in Atlanta, we’ve moved thousands of families in the City of Marietta. Each family has their own special reason for moving to Marietta, and our Atlanta movers would like to share a few of those reasons with you.
Local government officials and citizens alike are proud of Marietta’s recently acquired title of All-America City of 2006. Only ten communities around the nation are chosen from 600 applicants to receive this respected recognition each year. To apply, Marietta had to show the National Civic League that citizens were actively involved in their community through volunteer and business organizations, government was well-organized and efficient at solving local problems, and future community goals were declared in a clear plan involving the collaboration of all citizens, parents, children, and Marietta movers alike!
An award-winning city understands the importance of controlling and reducing criminal activity, a feat that Marietta has preformed with flying colors. Through the united effort of three community partnership projects, Marietta government officials and citizens worked together to reduce the city-wide crime rate by twenty-two percent. During this time, the Marietta Revitalization Program was initiated to redevelop declining areas and strengthen the sense of community among citizens. By utilizing an investment totaling over 335 million dollars, the City of Marietta will continue balancing the aftermath of the nationwide housing crisis, stabilizing school enrollment and facilities, and revitalizing neighborhoods and community areas for the benefit of all citizens.
Marietta is on a mission to put community first, and 2009 will only see an increase in programs, activities, and events for all citizens and movers in Marietta to enjoy. This month, over fifty residents, city employees, and elected officials will begin to plan the year-long calendar of events to celebrate the 175th anniversary of Marietta. Performances, community festivals, and much more will bring the celebration to full throttle in 2009, and you don’t want to miss it!
