Dirt has officially started moving on the city’s Main Street Park project, and elected officials and city staff celebrated the occasion Monday with a groundbreaking ceremony.
Pictured from left are Public Works Operations Manager Trampas Hansard, councilmen Mike French, Stephen Tolson and Caleb Phillips, City Manager Bob Bolz, Mayor Pro Tem Jason Power and contractor T.W. Phillips.
T.W. Phillips Grading was recently awarded the $1.4 million contract for construction of phase one, which is scheduled to take 120 days.
This phase will consist of installing a road that runs through the park as well as grading and grassing the land.
The park sits on 18 acres behind the Dawsonville Municipal Complex and Food Lion.
July 22 will mark four years since the Downtown Development Authority closed on a loan to buy the land.
