Powder Springs saw even more residents move into its jurisdiction, growing from 15,006 from 2017 to 15,378 in 2018.
Powder Springs City Manager Pam Conner said many factors can be attributed to that town’s growth, including its proximity to major cities, its price point of homes for sale and its lineup of amenities such as parks, trails and greenspace.
City leaders have also been consistent in marketing Powder Springs “as a place people seek to live and to locate a business, making it more friendly to do business and develop here,” Conner said.
She also mentioned other attractions in Powder Springs including a new downtown park under construction, improvements to commercial properties and the planned opening of a new brewery.
