Smyrna, GA

Smyrna is located about 10 miles northwest of Atlanta, Georgia and is considered an integral part of the Metro Atlanta area. Known as the "Jonquil City," it derives this name from the thousands of jonquils that flourish in gardens and along the streets in early spring. The City of Smyrna was incorporated in 1872 and operates under a form of government with Mayor and Council members representing seven wards.  Mayor and Council are elected by the people for four-year terms.  The governing body appoints a City Administrator to serve as the City's chief administrative officer. Over the years, the City of Smyrna - covering approximately 15 sq. miles - has developed into a vital and active member of the regional landscape.

Downtown Smyrna includes the following:

Village Green - This is citizen common ground. This is where the Community Center, the Library and arboretum reside. It is a focal point where people come together. This town center with adjacent private housing, retail and office space, city hall and a public safety facility is a pleasing and accessible area that is inviting and refreshing.

Market Village - This phase of downtown development is unmatched in appeal and village atmosphere. The design features 16 townhomes, 40,000 sq ft of retail space and another 18,000 sq ft of office space. Whatever you think you know about mixed-use today, rest assured that if it works, the idea got an early start in Smyrna. The success experience by Smyrna has encouraged others to apply the formula. Whatever you think you know about "Live, Work, Play," know that it is at its best in Smyrna and it is the Market Village. The Market Village is the heart of downtown - the new social center with restaurants, shops and services.  Another important attribute of Smyrna is its location in relationship to major transportation modes. Being a citizen of Smyrna means having ready access to several different methods of conveyance. The City is strategically located near three interstate and intrastate highway systems: I-75, I-20, and I-285.
