We have made progress and are so close to getting the funding for the Georgia Ave improvements to go from plan to reality.
The State is committing to providing funding. The County has also agreed to provide some cost-share. On our request, the State is considering filing a grant for federal funding. Georgia Ave is one of two projects being considered. But SHA wants to make sure that the improvements have broad support from the community.
Please take a minute to send a letter to SHA Administrator Greg Slater to encourage him to file the grant and implement the road improvements. Below is a rendering of what Georgia Ave could look like. Just imagine how much better it can be!
A sample letter is available at the link above. Feel free to modify this or write your own letter. If you use the sample letter please make sure to personalize it with you name and address and why the improvements are important to you. PLEASE send a copy of your email or letter to us at FixGeorgiaAve@gmail.com and to the elected officials at the bottom of the letter.
