Welcome from Chief Charles Rafford

Alexander City, with a population of over 15,000 is located on the shores of beautiful
Lake Martin with 44,000 acres of clean sparkling water and 750 miles of shoreline dotted
with cabins, condominiums, restaurants, marinas and Wind Creek State Park.

Alexander City boasts exceptional medical facilities. Russell Medical Center houses a
cancer center, a rehabilitation wing, a professional office building, eighty-one private
room beds, and 50 physicians on staff encompassing 25 medical specialties.
Alexander City Schools, grade K-12, are accredited through Southern Association of
Colleges and Schools. A community initiated scholarship program, "Gateway to
Education", provides a two-year college education from Central Alabama Community
College to all students graduating from Benjamin Russell High School who have earned
at least a "C" average. Central Alabama Community College is the home of the Betty
Carol Graham Technology Center that provides training of the workforce for high-tech
industries. Two public libraries, one adult and one children's provide additional
resources for the community.

Alexander City has a large group of active senior citizens who enjoy their own building
located in the 212 acre Charles E. Bailey, Sr. Recreational Cornplex. The complex is
known for its many outstanding programs and facilities for all ages.

The city continues to be aggressive in recruiting industry and new businesses. The Lake
Martin Economic Development Alliance formed in 1998 has a full time staff, actively
pursuing new industry. The Alliance is a regional partnership between Coosa and
Tallapoosa Counties, and Alexander City and Dadeville, and in conjunction with the
Lake Martin Area Industrial Development Authority has developed two industrial parks
in which several new diverse industries are located. U.S. 280, our primary corridor,
provides quick access to Birmingham, Montgomery, and Atlanta, Georgia. T. C.
Russell Field Airport contributes to making Alexander City a progressive city with a
bright future.

Alexander City, with its outstanding quality of life, welcomes visitors, new residents
and businesses to become a part of our community.

Charles R. Shaw, Sr.
