Group Home On Agenda For Sept. 7 Facility Would House 30 Court System Boys started since 1997 in Ohio. By CUNT CLAYBROOK Two potentially major issues will face the Hogansville City Council at its next meeting, which has been moved to Tuesday, Sept. 7 becaus~ 'q'hese would be boys who have never been in trou- ble before, but who need some discipline or organiza- tion in their lives," Evans said. Her clients, she said, from the state, capaciW to of folks near the house at 201 Elm Street which a Hogansville woman wants to convert - along with another building she ~ to con- struct ff she can't expand that house enough - into a group home for up to 30 teenage boys who will he'referred from the state's juvenile court system. The other issue is the question of rezoning some 343 acres for a Planned Unit Development that would con- tain single-family dwellings, townhouses and a light indus- trial area, according to devel- oper John Arnold. Both issues have been scheduled for public hearing before the Sept. 7 council meeting. ~ , THE PUBLIC HEARING will begin at 5:35 p.m., Mayor Wilson St. Clair said at Monday night's council meet- ing. *Lynn "Evans told the council that she plans to lease the house at 201 Elm Street and that the group home she wants to open could in time house 30-40 boys aged 12-18. Her building plans are indefinite, she said: "We wantedto make surewe could get approved here first." On Tuesday she told The Home News that the HogansviUe facility would be a "franchised operation" for a system of group homes her brother, Ralph Williams, has .c~ E Martin commented Monday nisht that the Evans proposal could stir up con- siderable opposition as soon as her would-be neighbors find out about her plans, which Evans said have been approved by the Planning Commissio~ THE REZONING request by Arnold, of Main Street Communities should face less opposition: The com- pany wants to build single- family dwellings and a num- ber of townhouses on the 343 acres in question near 1-85 and Blue Creek Road. wi~lPart of the development be west of the Interstate, Arnold said by telephone on Tuesday aftemtxm. There would be compar- atively few multi-family dwellings compared to the 207 single-family houses Main Street Communities wants to build, Arnold said. "We're going to keep 30 percent of the property for greenspace," and there will be "a huge recreational and "park are&" He said the entire devel- opment will "be a huge ben- efit to Hogansville, not only from a tax stand point, but just from the quality of envi- ronment we hope to develop for Hogansville." His proposal, too, has been approved by the plan- ning board, Arnold said. CLAYBROOK Money Means Sidewalk Bonus people, who thought Phase have what is the world is going the sidewalk between the post the driveway ~o Hogansville SchooL is the benefit of keeping expenditures - and below. ack Leidner explained Situation at a Monday night City because the city and for Phase I of the project kept expenditures some money was left over. So, city officials decided, "Let's do a little more." Using the left over money, the city got Contractor Jerry Brooks, of Phenix City, Ala., to continue Phase I a little beyond its anticipate cut-off point near Calvin Hipp Park, just across the street from Community Bank and Trust in the downtown area. That's how the additional work, from in front of the post office to the out bound drive leaving Hogansville Elementary School got done, Leidner said. Workmen there have been busily rebuilding the sidewalk on the south sidewalk of Main Street on that stretch of the roadway for a little more than two weeks. It appeared Monday that they had less than a city block's length of side. walk left on that job. "We hope to connect the (old city) amphitheater up" with the new side- walk, Liedner said. tOn another topic: New concrete planters should be arriving this week and they will be used in the downtown area to add to the shopping area's appeal, City Manager Randy Jordan told the City Council. Several of the new street lights - also part of the streetscape project - have already been installed and city crews will continue that work, Jordan said. .; s~ cam Oafmoa BONUS WORK Construction workers are extending their work rebuilding the downtown Hw~ ~r'olle side- m the Post Office to neo:r the dnve- at ansville ary because the Phase I ~es budget.
