Mayor and Council, do any of you know the history of the [Flat Creek Nature Area] boardwalk in Peachtree City?
Not only is that amenity one of the most loved nature related projects in the entire city, but it’s also a series of Eagle Scout projects built throughout the years by hundreds of our local Boy Scouts.
It has remained one of the most significant and enduring Eagle Scout projects in the State of Georgia, providing recreational enjoyment and natural beauty. It is one of the jewels of our municipality.
Every city administration since the project was constructed has maintained this valuable asset, including tree fall repairs which happened several times while I was in office.
Hacking such a civic project into pieces shows a severe lack of pride in our community and the achievement of the youth in our city.
I hope you will reconsider your priorities and repair this impressive project symbolizing the contributions our young citizens make towards the betterment of our city.
I look forward to your response.
Peachtree City, Ga.
