Canton is the government seat of Cherokee County, located about 40 miles due north of downtown Atlanta, in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. This city of 23,000 has experienced a phenomenal growth pattern, surging from 7,700 in the year 2000, almost achieving a tripling of its size within a decade!
Millions of dollars have been poured into renovation and revitalization, with new streetscapes, parks and greenways. Bluffs Parkway, a new technology center, was opened in 2004. Over 15,000 new high-tech jobs will be created in Canton over the 10-year build out of the technology park.
Woodstock is also a rapidly growing community in Cherokee County. By 2010, the city boasted a population of 24,000 residents, representing an astounding 138%, propelling Woodstock into prominence as the 10th fastest growing suburb in the United States!
Woodstock also has a close adherence to its environment and outdoor recreational activities. A green infrastructure master plan named the "Greenprints Project" has been embarked upon. When complete, over 50 miles of trails will connect every public place, shopping area and neighborhood.
