C.W. Matthews sponsors Cobb Safety Village

C.W. Matthews Contracting Co., Inc. showed its support in helping keep Cobb residents safe by donating $50,000 to sponsor the construction of a replica of its building in the Safety Village's model-sized village. Company CEO James Scott (right) recently visited the village with County Manager David Hankerson. C.W. Matthews has received many coveted industry awards, including American Concrete Pavement Association Award for Excellence, Top Georgia Department of Transportation Dollar Volume Awarded Contractor and Georgia Quality Initiative Achievement Award. The safety village is a child-size representation of Cobb, complete with trees and scaled-down models of operative buildings with signage, streets, traffic lights and homes. The site has four distinct areas, each presenting the opportunity to teach children how to react when faced with fire, crime and disaster emergencies, as well as drug and alcohol awareness and pedestrian safety. Residents can help build a path to a safer future by buying personalized brick pavers to be placed at the village or donating money.
