A new place to live, dine and shop is headed to Austell. On the calendar to open early 2023, The Village at Brookwood adds a bustling retail hub to this thriving commercial node at Austell Rd. and the East-West Connector in Cobb County. The mixed-use, multifamily development is replacing a former Burlington-anchored shopping center at 3753 Austell Rd. SW.
Three commercial buildings totaling 25,000 square feet form The Village at Brookwood’s front entrance offering single and multi-tenant pads — including a drive-thru — ideal for lifestyle amenities. The exclusive leasing agent Franklin Street is seeking fast-casual restaurants, a coffee shop, salons, medical services and boutique fitness operators to create the ideal offering for Austell’s growing population.
“Many of Atlanta’s suburbs like Austell continue to see strong growth, and with that growth comes new and exciting projects like the redevelopment of The Village at Brookwood,” explains Sam Krueger, retail director for Franklin Street. “This really is an opportunity for retailers to be showcased directly in front of a new multifamily community that is sure to be in high demand in this submarket.”
Within a three-mile radius, nearly 25,000 households with an average household income topping $83,000 enjoy walkability to shops and services as well as connectivity to other neighboring amenities such as Wellstar Cobb Hospital — without being too far from popular Atlanta landmarks and social venues.
Plans for The Village at Brookwood also include 338 residential units in five buildings featuring covered parking. Even a dog park ensures there’s space for all family members.
TLM Realty of New York, NY and Greystar Real Estate Partners of Charleston, SC. are developing this mixed-use community that is adjacent to another Greystar-helmed mixed-use community also expected to be complete in early 2023.

Friday, April 29
On April 28, the First Christian Church of Mableton hosted the Meals On A Mission serving 123 families by providing them with dry/canned groceries, Post Cereal and Kenny's Pies. In addition, Sweetwater Mission brought frozen pizzas, cheese, tortilla chips and tortillas. Executive Minister Barry Smith reminded us that Jesus showed us how to serve others, swallow our pride, humble ourselves and do things for the sake of others. Keeping this in mind, our volunteers, which included members of the Junior League and the Lions Club, did our best to make our neighbors feel loved as we helped them with their food needs.
The inaugural community cleanup event on April 23 was a hugh success. Thanks to all who volunteered to help Keep Cobb Beautiful. The driving force behind the initiative was to bring awareness to the county's litter challenges and beautify the district in honor of Earth Day on April 22.
There were three meeting locations and the five-hour event kicked off in D4's unincorporated Smyrna with Board of Zoning Appeals Chairperson Barkley Russell and her fellow members of the Forest Acres Civic Group, Rikki Ansley and Gillian Newberry. Smyrna's Ward 7 Councilman Lewis Wheaton also joined to put litter in its place. Chris Lanning, candidate for solicitor general, and his family joined at all three locations to help beautify the district.
A special thanks to: Keep Cobb Beautiful employees Kimberly White, Dawn Smith and Dr. Jenkins on their collaboration for the event and for the Dunkin Donuts for the fuel to get the group started as well as all in attendance to help; and KCB appointees Barry Krebs for also hiring a DJ, Jeff Padgett and the Adopt-a-Mile sponsors; Cobb PARKS for the tents, tables and chairs; Public Services Agency Director Dr. Jatunn Gibson and her assistant Grace Williams; The Austell Community Taskforce and the Mableton Improvement Coalition; IT, legal, communications and commissioner assistant, Deedra, for months of planning, collaborating and marketing the event; Cobb County Department Of Transportation for rolling up their sleeves and hauling off the collected litter.

Here’s a guide to using the recently released 1950 individual census records for Austell, Georgia. These records are useful in both genealogy and historical research, in determining where individuals lived in 1950, and who they were living with.
Those of you who do genealogy or local history research are probably familiar with the individual census records. They are the reproduction of the handwritten sheets created when the census for a particular was first conducted.
In a previous Cobb by the Numbers we looked at the release of the complete individual records for the 1950 decennial census. By federal law detailed census records for individual households can’t be released until 72 years after the census. The detailed records are the handwritten standardized forms familiar to genealogists and historians.
Now we’re focused on how to get at the records for each part of the county. This article is mostly intended to give readers a means of looking further into what Austell looked like at the time of that census, and to give guidance on searching for family members or other people being researched, rather than to give an in-depth statistical or demographic analysis of the area.
Here’s an image of the 1950 census map of Austell (I’ll show you how to get to an interactive version of the map later in the article):
The county was divided into enumeration districts by the U.S. Census Bureau. To look at the records from all areas that are considered Austell on today’s maps, you’ll need to look at districts 58, 59, 60, and 65.
An explanation for how to get to those enumeration districts is reprinted below from our earlier article.
To get to the records you can go to the search page at the National Archives by following this link, then hitting the “Begin Search” button and on the left-hand panel selecting “Georgia” and “Cobb County” under the state and county pull-down.
Or more quickly, you can go there via this link to the search that I’ve already done.
Cobb was divided into 67 enumeration districts in 1950, so you’ll be presented with a screen that looks like this:
At this point unless you’re familiar with historical geographies like the militia districts, you might have to muddle around a little to find the area you’re looking for, so clicking on the button marked “ED Maps” will give you an interactive map that is helpful in finding what you are looking for.
But for a simple example, let’s imagine I’m doing research on the Clarkdale thread mill district near Austell. I scrolled down to it, clicked on “Population schedules,” and came to this screen:
You can also get to a map of the enumeration district to make certain that if you’re searching for an individual you aren’t outside the boundaries of where that person lived.
You’ll have to use your mouse or key commands to pan around on the map and zoom in or out, but here’s what I got for the Clarkdale area.
Finding the records is just a first step. The Census Bureau is getting volunteers to transcribe the records for different areas so that the records are searchable and more easily readable. To learn how to help with this project follow this link.
Also, the Cobb Public Library is in the process of digitizing their collection of city directories, including the ones that covered Austell. When that is done, matching census records against addresses and the owners of area businesses in city directories, which are arranged in sections for both name and street, could create a further picture of Austell as it existed in 1950.
The Cobb County Courier relies on the support of its loyal and generous audience. Please consider a contribution today.

GEORGIA — Nineteen hospitals in Georgia received top marks for patient safety, but others didn't quite measure up in the Spring 2022 Hospital Safety Grades report released Tuesday by The Leapfrog Group, an independent nonprofit health care watchdog group.
The 2022 ratings reflect care during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Leapfrog Group said its and other groups' research showed the pandemic reversed years of progress in patient safety.
The pandemic has had a negative effect on "health care delivery at every level and setting, from staffing shortages to increased infections to the very care patients receive," according to the Adult Patient Experience at Acute Care Hospitals survey, also released Tuesday by The Leapfrog Group.
"The health care workforce has faced unprecedented levels of pressure during the pandemic, and as a result, patients' experience with their care appears to have suffered," Leapfrog Group president and CEO Leah Binder said in a news release. "We commend the workforce for their heroic efforts these past few years and now strongly urge hospital leadership to recommit to improved care — from communication to responsiveness — and get back on track with patient safety outcomes."
In Georgia, 19 hospitals received an "A" grade, 24 hospitals received a "B" grade, 37 hospitals received a "C" grade and four hospitals received a "D" grade. No Georgia hospital received an "F" grade.
Here are the rankings, according to Leapfrog:
The letter grades assigned to nearly 3,000 U.S general hospitals were based on more than 30 measures of patient safety. Leapfrog says its hospital rating system is the only one in the country focusing solely on a hospital's ability to protect patients from preventable errors, accidents, injuries and infections.
Included in the 30 are five that research has shown to directly affect patient outcomes, but can be improved with greater communication between caregivers and patients — the number of central line-associated bloodstream infections, catheter-associated urinary tract infections, infections from colon surgery, MRSA (Staphylococcus) blood laboratory-identified events, and facility-wide inpatient diarrhea events.
When there's communication about medications, for example, that can lead to fewer hospitalizations for conditions such as sepsis and blood clots, fewer complications, and decreases in the incidence of respiratory failure, Leapfrog said.
Among the findings:
To determine each hospital's grade, a panel of medical experts selected 30 evidence-based measures of patient safety such as postoperative sepsis, blood leakage and kidney injury. They then determined the weight of each measure based on evidence, opportunity for improvement and patient impact.
Data on each measure was collected through the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Information from the Leapfrog Hospital Survey, available to all hospitals to complete, also affects grades.
Currently, Leapfrog does not assign grades to military or Veterans Administration hospitals, critical access hospitals, specialty hospitals, children's hospitals or outpatient surgery centers.
The Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade methodology has been peer-reviewed and published in the Journal of Patient Safety.
The full methodology for the 2022 Leapfrog Hospital Safety Grade is available online.
AUSTELL, Ga. - There are more complaints from FedEx customers across metro Atlanta claiming they have been waiting weeks for packages to arrive.Many say their packages are just sitting at the Austell facility."You’re ruining birthdays, and you’re probably going to be ruining Christmases too," Eric Lohr s...
AUSTELL, Ga. - There are more complaints from FedEx customers across metro Atlanta claiming they have been waiting weeks for packages to arrive.
Many say their packages are just sitting at the Austell facility.
"You’re ruining birthdays, and you’re probably going to be ruining Christmases too," Eric Lohr said.
Eric Lohr is waiting on a birthday gift he ordered for his son to be delivered by FedEx.
"Nobody seems to know what’s going on," Lohr claims.
Lohr ordered the gift in late November which was promised to arrive in time. His son's birthday has come and gone.
"Everyday in the morning it would update and say on the FedEx vehicle for delivery," Lohr said.
According to the tracking, Lohr’s package was first received by FedEx at the end of November, and it made its way to the Austell warehouse where it has been sucked into a never-ending cycle. It claims to be on the truck each morning for delivery.
Lohr says he was able to finally speak with someone from the corporate office after several emails and calls.
"She calls Austell. Austell says it’s not ready for delivery. They don’t have the manpower to be delivered. Nothing is being delivered from Austell is what she tells me," Lohr said.
Lohr believes the problem is bigger than just him.
"A change is what’s necessary. It’s not about the package. It’s about the process that need to be overhauled," Lohr said.
Lohr is grateful it didn’t ruin his son's big day.
"He was not the one heartbroken. He understood. I was the one heartbroken. I still am because I feel I’ve done my son a disservice when I know I’ve ordered it in ample time for it to get here," Lohr said.
A spokesperson for FedEx sent this statement:
"We understand our customers’ frustrations and apologize for any inconvenience as we accelerate contingencies to resolve delays caused by significant package volumes and an ongoing industry labor shortage. We are doing everything we can to address this situation, including securing more package handlers and delivery resources. In the meantime, we kindly ask that customers refrain from visiting the station so that we can maintain safety protocols and minimize any operational disruption. Customers wishing to inquire about their package status should visit www.fedex.com for package tracking and customer service assistance."
