Greetings Canton!

May flew by in Canton-- but that's how life is when you have so many great things happening in your community like us here in Canton. Take a look at some of the highlights:

  • Two new dining options are expected to open in Downtown Canton this month, The Local on North (170 North St.) and Mamma Onesta's (250 E. Main St.).
  • Johnny's Pizza (559 Riverstone Pkwy.) has reopened under new management.
  • New benches and trash receptacles have been installed downtown courtesy of the Canton Downtown Development Authority.
  • On May 6, Northside Hospital-Cherokee opened its new replacement facility. The new 440,000 square foot facility, with 105 beds, also includes dedicated centers for women and for cancer care.The new hospital represents nearly $300 million in investment and generated around 300 new jobs in the community. The new Northside Hospital-Cherokee is located at 450 Northside Cherokee Blvd. The new phone number for the hospital is 770.224.1000. The old hospital, at 201 Hospital Rd., is permanently closed.

Can't wait to let you know what's happening next month!
