Signs of discontent in Loganville

Posted: Saturday, February 15, 2020 12:00 am

Whether it’s on a traffic light, a road sign, or the shirt of someone at a recent Loganville city council meeting, red means stop. Or, at the very least, slow down.

That’s the message dozens of Loganville residents had for their local leaders about the proposed development for downtown.

    Thank you for your fair portrayal of the CC meeting this past Thursday. I only wish you would have named the CC members that were interested enough in the citizens to stay around until their questions were answered. This not only allows the community to assess the level of interest the CC has in it's citizenry, it points out those who are not interested. We have literally been begging the CC to come before the community to answer questions since the Connolly presentation in the Rock Gym (12/16/2019) when the community was shut down by the Mayor as they started to ask questions. The excuse being used as the reason for not coming before the group of citizens is "we are waiting for the Haddow analysis to see what they say about the viability of Connolly's proposal." Our position is report or not, you can still answer many of our questions. Please just acknowledge we exist. Keep in mind, the Mayor first spoke to Connolly in 3/2019 and the proposed development, renderings, Connolly securing contingency contracts on homes involved in project, establishing a web page "Mainstreet Loganville", Rock Gym meeting, etc. began. Yet, it was not until 1/2020, that the city commissioned the Haddow group to analyze the feasibility of such a project. Does that strike you as odd? Could it possibly be that this study was done when the CC realized the citizens were not going away quietly? Does good judgement allow for getting a study AFTER you have already spent 9 mos. working towards the project? And according to minutes obtained from the Loganville Development Authority, Connolly has already spent $500,000 towards this proposed project !....tangled webs...
