Revitalization interesting

POSTED: May 22, 2013 4:00 a.m.

It was interesting to read the recent recommendations for downtown Dawsonville revitalization. They were almost identical to the items we identified when the previous revitalization committee was active probably 15 years ago, including the desire to utilize the David house in some way. We also worked under the guidance of a University of Georgia planner, Paul Kreager.

The intersecting of two state highways at the center of town was and is a major complication in making the area safer and more attractive to visitors. That is an issue only the Georgia Department of Transportation can solve.

We were able to do some beautification/clean-up projects, but at that time the focus became creating the racing museum with the hope of increasing tourist traffic to the downtown area.

Trees and grass will go a long way in making the area more visually attractive. I applaud your efforts and wish you every success.
