Keeping Radium Springs beautiful

October 27, 2003

Dougherty County- People in Radium Springs want the Springs to remain a tranquil place even after the Casino in torn down. Monday, the President of the Radium Springs Neighborhood Association told county commissioners members don't want the land used for commercial gain.

They support the Department of Natural Resources' plan to build nature trails and an amphitheater for educational talks. "We would hate to see large amounts of concrete being paved for parking out there," said Dr. Lindsay Boring, Radium Springs Neighborhood Association President. "And, we don't want any type of commercial venue. We think keeping the land in public trust is the best way to protect it."

The County hasn't agreed to spend any money on the land, and the DNR also has no money available for improvement to the Springs and surrounding land.
