Residents of the city of Dawsonville could finally begin to see dirt moving on the plot of land behind the Municipal Complex and Food Lion grocery store as work on Main Street Park is expected to commence this spring. After four years of planning and preparation by the Downtown Development Authority and Dawsonville City Council, the council voted Monday night to bid out phase 1 work on the park, which will consist of installing a road that runs through the park as well as grading and grassing the land. The bid is expected to go out this week or next, and will be out for 30 days. The current site plan for the park shows that it will contain public restrooms, a playground, a splash pad, walking trails, picnic areas, open fields and an amphitheater, as well as potentially volleyball or bocce ball courts.
