Fayette County Moving Forward on Plans for Starr's Mill Path Project
Fayette County, Georgia, December 2, 2014 - Following the recent unanimous decision by the Fayette County Board of Education on the location of the new golf cart parking lots at Starr's Mill High School, the Fayette County Board Commissioners have directed the Engineering Department to proceed with a new Redwine Road path segment to the school complex.
The new path section along Redwine Road will bring students in golf carts down to Panther Path where a Sheriff's Deputy will manage morning school traffic. The new crossing will create the safest conditions.
"We may have to obtain small amounts of right-of-way from adjacent landowners to insure enough width for the multi-use path and provide adequate drainage," explains Commission Chairman Steve Brown. "Depending upon how fast we can secure that right-of-way, we could have the new section complete by late spring or summer."
If the Board of Education's new parking lots are constructed on schedule, some students living on the south side of the Starr's Mill campus will have early access to the school. Interim path access at Panther Path to the school site while the county moves forward will be up to the Board of Education.
Over the past two years, the Board of Commissioners has worked to convert the county's governmental structure related to multi-use paths. As Fayette County continues to move toward becoming one of the nation's first countywide multi-use path network providers, the county is working to interconnect to municipal paths and already redesigned ordinances for golf carts earlier in the year.
Much of the initial concept work on creating more and better path infrastructure has been performed by local high school students in the county's summer internship program.
Tessa Strickland, a county student intern who worked on creating this path project for her fellow Starr's Mill High School students says, "I'm extremely blessed to have been given the opportunity to be a part of this project and watch it materialize. I'm excited to see where this path takes Starr's Mill and the community."

FAYETTE COUNTY BURN PERMIT PROCESS HAS CHANGED
Effective October 1, 2014, the Fayette County Department of Fire and Emergency Services will change the method by which residents of unincorporated Fayette County, Tyrone, Brooks, and Woolsey will acquire outdoor burn permits. Historically, residents in those areas would call the automated burn permit line to secure a burn permit. As of October 1, that method of acquiring burn permits will no longer be available. The department has developed an online permit process that will quickly allow residents the ability to secure and print a permit that will be valid for the day in which the resident wishes to burn. This permit process does not include those living in the city limits of Fayetteville, and Peachtree City…read more.
