The last remaining home in the Aldora Mill village was hauled off last week and plans are moving forward to improve the area. The first thing on the agenda is removing debris and old, unclaimed storage buildings.’Though we have not had any garbage collection in a couple of years, we have still been paying collection fees to the City of Barnesville. They are going to move in some roll-off dumpsters and start cleaning the place up as soon as they finish infrastructure work at the new Boys & Girls Club. They should start soon,’ Aldora mayor Jimmy Matthews said.An architect has been retained to design a small town hall which will also serve was a sales office for the new gated housing development on the property. ‘We are going to sell nine building lots and will likely build a model home similar to what we want out there. It will be 1400 to 1700 square feet,’ Matthews said.A berm will be constructed on the edge of the property along Peacock Street. It will be planted with dense vegetation with a fence at its core for security. ‘We are having all kinds of problems at the scout hut and our storage facility from vandals coming from the apartment complex (Powell Place) back there on Ward Drive so we have to take some action there. The school system also has problems with vandals back there as well,’ Matthews concluded.
