The Georgia Municipal Association (GMA) recently named Avondale Estates a recipient of a 2019 Live, Work, Play City Award.
Nine cities from across Georgia received the award, which was presented during GMA’s annual Mayors’ Day Conference in Atlanta, according to an Avondale newsletter.
The cities varied in populations – some having more than 25,000 while Avondale has fewer than 4,000 – but each had “success in advancing job creation, housing offerings, and recreational amenities,” the newsletter said.
In addition to being recognized during GMA’s Mayors’ Day, winning cities will be highlighted in the association’s monthly newspaper, Georgia’s Cities. GMA believes the recipients represent the positive qualities of local governments.
“These nine cities truly embody well-rounded communities that benefit residents and businesses alike,” GMA Executive Director Larry Hanson said. “They also serve as examples for local governments across Georgia. Officials in these cities have demonstrated advanced problem-solving, exceptional management and teamwork to increase the overall quality of life for all residents. GMA is honored to serve all of our member cities and especially proud of these award recipients.”
