Press Release and announcement from Mayor David Keener on Social Circle being awarded Federal Historic Preservation Grant

We are honored to be considered for and awarded the Historic Resources Survey grant.
This Grant will allow us the opportunity to conduct an extensive survey of approximately 441 parcels within our National and Local Historic District(s). This will also provide our city and historic property/structure owners a better understanding of the significance of these properties.

Housing Survey Feedback


Citizen Housing Survey Commentary? We would love your feedback!

Please find attached the proposed Housing Survey and Policy Recommendation from KB Advisory Group. The KB Group helps conduct research in helping cities understand the market and economic forces that will impact development. Note, this is laying the groundwork of national and regional housing trends.  Social Circle specific data and trends will be brought back to the Planning Commission and then Mayor and Council, the future dates will be announced. The consultant asked the PC members to consider whether these are the questions to be asking, or whether there are different questions that this community should be asking to inform housing policy trends. The City is requesting feedback from our citizens. We need to emphasize the protection of the charm and identity of Social Circle.  Please email Barbara Schlageter at bschlageter@socialcirclega.gov with any comments and concerns.

2021 Independence Day Celebration Info


 Independence Day Celebration-Saturday June 26, 2021

This year the Independence Day Celebration will be moved from Stephen's Park to Downtown Social Circle! The event planning committee has scheduled activities a little differently from prior years for this City center location. We are excited to bring these festivities downtown in 2021.

From noon until 5 pm, Cherokee Road will be closed to traffic for a street festival with ten to twenty arts and crafts and food vendors; and a car show. The proceeds from the car show will be dedicated to the "Police Who Care" fund, which is a charity supported by law enforcement agencies for community benefit. Local law enforcement agencies fron1 around the region will be present to show their support.

The car show will end, and vendors will leave the area after 5 pm so that Cherokee Road can be reopened by 7 pm so visitors can come to the evening celebrations.

Beginning at 7 pm in Friendship Park will be a concert featuring the 80's cover band, the 80ators. This band is amazing and will keep you on your feet! The park will be clear of vendors during this time, so bring your lawn chairs and blankets and enjoy the evening.

Four food trucks will be parked adjacent to Friendship Park to aid our restaurants in keeping attendees fed and refreshed.

Fireworks will begin at 9:45pm. At the conclusion of the Fireworks, Police and Fire staff will assist a safe and orderly flow of traffic from the event.

We appreciate all the vendors participating in this event and look forward to fun community event that is beneficial to the merchants and vendors and charity, and that celebrates our Country's Independence Day.
