NEWBORN'S FUTURE PLANS!
Click to read our new Town Plan. Input from citizens was invaluable in setting these goals. Now the hard part: implementing it!
Welcome to Newborn Town Park!
Don't you LOVE the new gate! It features our motto, "A Town With Characters" and a lovely tree, because we do love our trees.
The new fencing isn't to keep anyone out, but to keep the chilluns inside and the balls from running on the road.
The artful gate was crafted locally by artist/owner Andrew Bakot at Free Flow Metal Works and Custom Product, you can find them on Facebook too! Or, visit them at the upcoming Hornyhead Festival in Newborn on April 27.

Mayor and Citizens "Reshaping The Heart of Newborn"
Mayor Gregg Ellwanger was recently interviewed for the Newton Trails Newsletter:
"This is a story of government refocusing its priorities when its citizens redefine theirs."
"Newborn, a picturesque and historical town of more than 800 in eastern Newton County, may be removed from the bustle of urban life, but its residents share connections to the same changing needs and attitudes as Atlanta and beyond."
