Progress continues on the Currahee Beautification Project in Toccoa.

Vice-Mayor Terry Carter updated city commissioners on a number of different projects related to that effort at last Tuesday’s city commission meeting.

Carter said that the city and private entities are working together on a number of different fronts.

“Chip Wright met with the Acree Oil folks and presented them with the design for the entire campus,” said Carter. “They seem excited about what he offered.”

Carter also said that demolition is still moving ahead on the old Toccoa Casket Company.

“They are almost finished with the demo,” said Carter.

He also said that grass will be planted and a sewer line has been moved in an effort to make the land more attractive to development.

Carter said work also continues on landscaping and improving the vacant lot at the corner of Currahee and Broad streets.

He said that the city has installed a sidewalk on the lot, while a sign for the property is under construction, with planting and flowers of such expected to take place next month.

The goal of the Currahee Beautification Project is to clean up Currahee Street all the way from the Jeanette Jamieson Intersection through Toccoa and to the state line.
