PLANS MOVE AHEAD FOR J.B. WILLIAMS PARK
Commissioners awarded a contract on Tuesday to Pond & Company Inc. to develop construction documents for the future J.B. Williams Park located on Five Forks Trickum Road. The 26-acre park will feature a lighted baseball field, which allows for future development of a multi-purpose field at nearby Mountain Park Park. Funding for the $171,000 contract comes from the 2009 SPLOST program.
A citizens’ steering committee worked with county staff over the past year to develop a master plan for the park. Other amenities will include a concession/restroom building, pavilion/playground complex, youth activity area, dog park, 12-foot-wide asphalt trail, picnic structures, paved connecting walkways, new entrance with deceleration lane, signage, parking lot and site lighting.
