CACEI wants the best for the City of Canton and adjoining townships as the area moves forward into the future. We work to protect the environment and green space, areas for future growth of residential neighborhoods, Canton Lake neighborhoods, commercial areas, the city’s water resource, rural wells, farmland, the natural beauty of the area and the recreational activities provided by the lake. The organization works for long-term protection of our environmental assets for us and future generations.
The proposed North Canton Strip Mine has been the primary focus for CACEI since Canton area citizens first learned of it in 2006. After 8 long years, the strip mine has been stopped. The beautiful rolling Copperas Creek valleys, tall mature oak and hickory timber, and productive farmland along scenic tree-lined country lanes bordered by horse pastures and family farms will not be blasted and bull-dozed down for the one time taking of coal.

Fulton County is going healthy, green and moving forward. There is no shortage of good things to celebrate — new bike path, a solar energy field, and a new lake community are just a few of the exciting, forward things coming to the area.
