Filed under: 55+/Active Adult, Woodstock — Tags: , — Kathy and Ben @ 8:00 am

Presently working with someone who wants to downsize due to kids growing up and not wanting to take care of a large home and yard.  Suggested they may want to look at an active adult community.  The response was I want my own place.  So what is an active adult community?

Arts Center Planned for Woodstock GA

Filed under: Woodstock — Tags: , , — Kathy and Ben @ 8:59 am

It looks like a recently neglected property that was a victim of the economic downWoodstock GA downtown homesturn in Woodstock GA now has a chance to become a major attraction and asset for the city.  The Woodstock City Council has approved a memorandum of understanding to turn a foreclosed property on Elm Street just west of downtown into a cultural arts complex.

The proposed Elm Street Cultural Arts Village would include a visual arts center for galleries and exhibits, a “black box” theater for acting and intimate performances plus four acres of undeveloped greenspace for recreation and outdoorevents.  The greenspace would connect to a portion of the Greenprints Alliance Trails, a county-wide system of walking and biking trails that we’ve written about in the past.  The property also has an approximately 100 year-old home with a spacious front porch that would be renovated and turned into the arts center. 

The City Council plans to meet with representatives of the Town Lake Arts Center to develop a formal plan to present to the Cherokee County Board of Commissioners to request funds to purchase the property.  If approved, funding would come from the county’s $90 million parks bond

While this project is still in its early stages, city leadership seems to be fully on board, so we’ll be closely following future developments.
