I was in Blairsville today and enjoyed Meeks Park. I have been listening about the taxpayers money being spent in Blairsville. Any money spent on this park is money well spent. I spent several dollars in Blairsville today. I also noticed several out of town tags on cars( Canton Georgia); I believe out of towners will stop and enjoy Meeks and spend money while in Blairsville. I travel from Canton to Hiawassee a lot and I can tell you Meeks is first rate. People get out and enjoy your recreational areas.

Maybe not.... Are outsiders the only ones that can see the beauty Blairsville has to offer? Blairsville has a lot going for it; the only thing is they do need some "light Industry".

Well. Lamar's property backs up to it. Wouldn't you want to make sure your property value was enhanced by having it back up to green space?

At least you have something nice to look at and enjoy for your tax dollars. You could be like us in Gilmer with a 32 million dollar courthouse that sits half empty all the time.

Slow I would not recommend that. I did see some young adults playing in it, but they were clothed.

You have no vision whatsoever. Back when the original land for Meek's Park was purchased, I bet you griped and moaned about that.

Down the road, maybe ten to twenty years, the citizens of Union County will truly appreciate having the additional land.

Would you rather the land just across Butternut Creek to have been developed into home lots? Could you imagine homes jammed all over the place across from the park? As for myself, I think it was a wise decision.

I have been in close to every ballpark in most of Ga, Tenn, NC, SC, and Alabama. Meeks has little to no competition. But I am not letting the kids play in the creek lol.

I have to disagree about Alabama. Some of those small towns over there are proving grounds for the University of Alabama and have beautiful parks.

Sorry to say, youse didn't enlighten me. Another poster enlightened me saying Lamar owns land next to it.

Maybe we'll see Lamar jam his home next to the park.

Course he can put up a sign saying "SPLOST monies paid for my view of the park."

FYI;
My understanding is the land was donated, and you probably moaned and groaned cause you didn't make a dime off it.

How many mountain views did you see in Alabama? I have saw a couple of nice parks when we went to showcase tournaments in Alabama but ... you can take the boy out of the mountains :-)

Weird that you saw a tag from Canton, being that Canton is a city which is in Cherokee county. I thought GA tags all had the county name on them and not the city.

We need some heavy industry like a paper mill, a copper smelting mill, an acid plant and some carpet mills. We can clear cut this whole place fer timber to use fer the papermill. The carpet mills will turn the lake a lot of different colors.

Timmy, I was thinking more along the lines of metal fabrication or plastic molding. Both use very little water and have very little impact on environment. They could be positioned somewhere on the four lane south of Walmart. It would bring much needed money to the area. That way property taxes could stay lower. I think even you would appreciate that.
