Talks of developing 10,000 acres in Dawson Forest resurface
Placeholder Image
County officials have had little contact and have been given even less information involving the 10,000 acre Dawson Forest Wildlife Management tract owned by the City of Atlanta, despite reports that real estate developers are once again eyeing the land. The 10,000 acres in Dawson County is one of two large lots of land purchased by the City of Atlanta in the 1970s as possible sites for a second Atlanta area airport. A study in 2011 determined that developing the property for an airport would be unfeasible financially.
