DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

Progress is being made to maintain greenspaces in Dougherty County. 

Despite the storms leaving piles of debris, there are still plans to create walking paths and a park at the old Radium springs golf course.

The county owns 310 acres of that property. 

Chairman of the Dougherty County Citizens greenspace advisory committee, Bill Swan, addressed members of the county commission Monday.  

He said once all of the debris is cleared, they will be on track to create paths. 

He said it's a perfect area, with all of the old golf cart paths already there. 

"It's a great destination to walk out there. There's a lot of debris out there right now but we are making progress getting that moved. It's just a destination kind of park," said Swan. 

The Greenspace efforts are funded through SPLOST money.

Once the trails are clear, the county commission will have to give the "OKAY" to start the project.
