Special land use application for Iron Mountain Park approved
Lumpkin County BOC unanimously approves SLUA with conditions
The future of Iron Mountain Park was made clearer for Lumpkin and Dawson County residents after the Lumpkin County Board of Commissioners unanimously approved the project’s Special Land Use Application (SLUA) at its regular session meeting Oct. 1. The status of the project was last discussed on May 7 when Lumpkin County commissioners voted to table the project until the Oct. 1 meeting in order for officials to gather additional information and for the proposal to address a “lack of specificity.” Iron Mountain Park is a 4,300-acre ATV park and music venue located in Lumpkin and Dawson counties. Property owner and CEO of the park, Craig Stansberry, outlined his plans for a family-friendly destination at the May 7 public hearing, which included RV campgrounds, restaurants, a microbrewery, equestrian trails, rental cabins and a water park in addition to the racing trails and outdoor concert amphitheater.
