THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -   "Save Our Forest" was organized after city and county officials discussed turning 200 acres of publicly owned woodlands into an industrial park.

During a packed county commission meeting this week commissioners voted unanimously against selling the land.  Jerry Turner, a member of the group said, "We're just so thankful for this turnout and we're especially thankful to the commissioners for deciding not to destroy this forest which is a wonderful green space that belongs to all of us."

The members of "Save Our Forest" now plan to draw up an official policy to prevent the issue from being brought up again.
