New airport tower gets backing from Mayor

January 12, 2013 by  

The new control tower at Cobb County McCollum Field has received the backing of mayor Mark Matthews, who says it will help Kennesaw continue to attract new businesses and develop vital links.

Digital business card printing services in Kennesaw have probably been hitting overdrive over the last year, with many new and well-performing companies locating to the area. The continued development of the airport is said to be key to this.

There was also a great deal of expansion by existing businesses, across many different sectors in the area over the past twelve months, prompting Matthews to say:

“…they represent a diversity of sectors, it helps limit our exposure if one sector has a downturn.”

Mayor Matthews was fronting a group of over 220 Kennesaw Business Association (KBA) members at his State of the City address earlier in January. Mentioning how the airport is becoming increasingly important to the area, he suggested the new tower could become a memorable local landmark. He said:

“I’ve been asked to serve on the committee to help with the concept and design, and try and create a facility that speaks for our community. I heard what they would like to see is the ‘new Big Chicken’ for Cobb County.”

There was also a special mention for the KBA from Matthews. The Mayor said that its efforts, the efforts of its members, and those of the wider Kennesaw business community were helping the area to become increasingly productive.
