Boulevard Woods gets final green light

With a unanimous vote at its Feb. 3 regular session meeting, the Athens-Clarke County Mayor and Commission gave the final green light to the Boulevard Woods project.

We’re not sure of the exact date that we’ll be able to break ground to build the park, but we’ll let you know in the coming weeks. That’s right: the next step is actual construction. (Can you believe it?)

Thank you Mayor Denson, and Commissioners!

Show your support for Boulevard Woods tonight

Whether Boulevard Woods gets built or not is now in the hands of the Mayor and Commission.

They are set to vote on the project at their regular session meeting tonight (Tuesday, Feb. 3). The meeting starts at 7 pm at City Hall.

If they vote to give a green light, we’ll be able to break ground on constructing Boulevard Woods this spring.

Support for Boulevard Woods looks strong from the Mayor and the Commissioners at this point. But a show of continuing support from the community won’t hurt.

You can do that by joining us in person tonight at City Hall for the meeting. Or by sending a quick message to the Mayor and your Commissioner expressing your support for Boulevard Woods. Or you can do both.

Here’s contact information for the Mayor and Commissioners.
