City Planning, Zoning Board Gets Optimistic Predictions By Bryan Geter The Hogansville Planning and Zoning committee met with Chattahoochee Flint's Earl Raymond last Thursday to discuss the Economic Development of Comprehensive Planning for the City of Hogansville. Chairman of the planning committee Wesley Duffey said this committee wants to see things happen. Raymond told the committee in 1990, forty percea of the city's population depended on manufacturing and said Westex, Botex and Carter's are three of the largest manu- facturers in the city today. He said Hogansville, today, has 23 retail businesses not including restaurants and stated developments in the down- town area have slowed up and are moving to the outskirts of town. He said he expects restaurants and retail to increase in the city in the future. He also said tourism is expected to increase in Hogansville with West Point Lake nearby. "This will have an effect on everybody in Hogansville," Raymond added. "They will buy gas, beer, Cokes, and ice and will stop at the fast food restau- rants and convenience stores." More and more people will be stopping in downtown to shop the antique stores and visit the historic sites since Hogansville has much historical significance. "The Lake (West Point) plays a big part in tourism in Hogansville," Raymond said. "There are many prospects for new industry to come here." "I'd rather see new homes than industry in Hogansville, " City Manager David Aldrich said, "We like to see new industry, but we would like to be able to choose." "We won't shut the door on anybody (industry)," Mayor Wilson St. Clair said. "We aren't set up for high tech indus- try, but we will listen to anybody."
