MARIETTA — Groundbreaking for the long-awaited renovation of Hickory Hills Park will be held 6 p.m. Tuesday, August 9 at the park located near Chestnut Hill Road off Powder Springs Street, Mayor Steve "Thunder" Tumlin has announced.

Groundbreaking will be followed by a 7 p.m. town hall meeting hosted by Tumlin and Council members Grif Chalfant and Johnny Sinclair at Hickory Hills Elementary School, where the citizenry will have an opportunity to examine the final plans for the park that are under contract, Tumlin said.

The photo related to the article titled "Back, better than ever" was disappointing. Once again Philip Goldstein postures being an actual steward for Marietta. It makes sense that Johnny Sinclair was in the photo as this involves his Ward. Goldstein has proven time and time again that his only agenda is directly related to how it will directly impact him financially so that he may add yet another piece to his Monopolyboard. Since the group as a whole appears to be digging a trench, is it possible that this might be directly related to the "swimming hole" that he left on the Square after he destroyed the old Culbertherson Building. Or maybe it will be either a five story mixed use building or another run down "parking lot".

True, true - that intersection is deadly. I was the victim of an accident where the other party broadsided me after running that light. Now I never, ever go when it first turns green. Sit there long enough or go through that intersection enough times and you will see multiple cars run that light. Very, very dangerous!

The park will be great,but coming from Austell on Powder springs road, wanting to make a left turn onto Chesnuthill is a death trap.There is no turning arrow. and the turn it self can be very confusing. With the new park there will be more traffic. It really needs to be looked at and taken care of before there is a major accident at this intersection.Cars coming from Marietta turning right are traveling at a high rate of speed, and they do not yeild to other cars. Some body please do something!!!!

Please stop using "Thunder" Tumlin. He is a grown man for goodness sake!
