Projects and Information

Fall is in the air and we look forward to cooler temperatures in the next few weeks. With October and the leaves changing color comes an increase in traffic.  Please be careful and allow yourself a bit more time when to traveling places. 

The city has a lot going on and I must take a moment and recognize the wonderful group of people you have serving you. In the last few months, they have supervised the construction of a new well, implementation of live streaming of our meetings, a number of upgrades, renovations and additions to City Hall along with supervising the construction of Main Street Park and the Farmer’s Market.  Main Street Park - Phase 1 grading is about 60% complete, curbing and paving to start soon with the playground and rest room design underway. Demolition and clearing have started at the new Farmer’s Market along Allen Street, installation of sewage line is completed, engineering complete and the bid package being prepared. 

Upcoming projects anticipated in the coming months include, upgrade of our phone system, a new service contract for information technology, an improved website, a sidewalk from Shoal Creek Road along Perimeter Road to the entrance to Rain Hill subdivision, sidewalk from Allen Street to City Hall, various road and parking lot paving, and sidewalk from Allen Street at Perimeter Road past Robinson Elementary to Hwy 9 N. We are researching the development of city streets to allow additional parking and hopefully the site of a public restroom for serving the downtown area. Additionally, we have many ‘behind the scenes’ projects that ensure a successful future for Dawsonville, such as an upgrade of well #108, and expansion of our sewage capacity. 

We apologize for any inconvenience recently with our garbage contractor. There was a considerable amount of confusion surrounding pick-up on Labor Day. 

We held our fourth food truck night on September 14th and had our largest crowds yet.  Future food truck nights are scheduled for October 5th, and November 2nd.  We hope to see you there for some good food, good fun and good fellowship. We will have another on December 1st in conjunction with our annual Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting all held at the City Hall/GRHOF Complex.
