Comprehensive Plan Community Meeting

October 2 is the date for Athens-Clarke County community meeting focused on "needs and opportunities" as our local government develops a new Comprehensive Plan for 2018. This is the local document required by the state for addressing planning and development in our community. The meeting will solicit public input and will be held at Cornerstone Church at 7:00 p.m. Please find more information on the calendar item "Comprehensive Plan -- Community Meeting" on athensclarkecounty.com.


Power outages in Athens

Five Points is dark. The traffic lights and all business lights (including Waffle House, Golden Pantry, and Earth Fare) are dark. The only lights are at the fire station and from all the headlights of cars. There is a lot of traffic going through here. I can only suppose people are trying to go to other places that have power because where else would you be going when the governor advised everybody to stay off the roads? Anyway, I'm glad I had extra batteries for my radio so I can sit in the dark and listen to commercials.
