The University of Georgia’s Extension office in Polk County moved down the street in 2020, but the organization is finally getting a chance to invite the public to take part in an upcoming ribbon cutting ceremony to make their opening official.
The upcoming ceremony being organized by the Polk County Chamber of Commerce is open for all to come and attend on Monday, May 17 starting at 2 p.m.
Polk County’s new extension office at 225 Main St., Cedartown, is a completely remodeled and upgraded facility purchased by the county after the move of Cedarstream from downtown out to the Northside Industrial Park.
In years past, the Extension Office called 20 N. Main St. home and provided a variety of services to local farmers and landowners, along with running the 4-H Youth Development program from a building that was long in need of upgrades and repairs.
Instead, the county opted to purchase the former home of Cedarstream and remodel the interior to be used by the Extension Office instead.
