Constitution Awareness Day

Per Mayor David Keener



September 17-23, 2021


WHEREAS:       September 17, 2021 marks the 234th anniversary of the 1787 Constitutional

Convention where the oldest active written constitution in the world was drafted by the United States, thus outlining the fundamental principles by which our nation is governed; and


WHEREAS:       Our Constitution established six basic governing principles for our society,

including popular sovereignty, the rule of law, federalism, judicial review,

individual rights and separation of powers with a system of checks and balances;



WHEREAS:       Popular sovereignty allowed our government to be created for and by the people, while the rule of law required that government and citizens be guided by a set of laws, rather than by any individual or single group.  Federalism provided for the sharing of power between our national government and individual state governments; and


WHEREAS:       The Constitution ensures the distribution of functions and responsibilities among

three separate branches with a system of checks and balances to calibrate those

powers, guaranteeing individual rights and liberties against government

encroachment; and


WHEREAS:       The State of Georgia became the fourth state in the Union to ratify the

Constitution, signed by Georgia delegates Abraham Baldwin and William Few, on

January 2, 1788.  Constitution Week affords the opportunity for all citizens to

learn about Georgia’s role during our nation’s founding.


NOW THEREFORE: I, David L. Keener, Mayor of the City of Social Circle do hereby proclaim September 17-23, 2021, as CONSTITUTION WEEK in Social Circle and September 17, 2021 as Constitution Awareness Day.

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.
