GDOT begins study to determine city airport feasibility
Placeholder Image
Nine days after the city of Dawsonville announced renewed interest in buying the Elliott Field airport and retaining it for public use, the Georgia Department of Transportation began a study to determine whether the airport is a viable option before the state makes a financial commitment. On Feb. 15, members of the GDOT study team, including a consulting firm called Jviation out of Colorado, met with Dawsonville Mayor James Grogan and members of the city's consultant, Lead Edge Design, to inspect the airport. The study is estimated to take six months.
