Extreme sports park could derail C&D landfill plan

A development group from Henry County and a construction company based in Roswell are eyeing the 312-acre property off Possum Trot Road earmarked by E.T. Carlyle for a construction and demolition landfill for use as an extreme sports park. A representative of the construction company has been in discussions with county officials for several weeks and reported that the owners of the land are willing to sell it. The park would have wake boarding, mud bogging, motocross racing, drift car racing and other extreme sports. Mary Sewell of High Falls Park Road brought up the proposal at tonight’s county commission meeting. She said a town hall meeting of the neighbors was set for May 4. Sewell said she heard the park would seek C-2 zoning. “Everybody says this will be better than a landfill. But, with that zoning, anything could go there if it falls through. I urge the commission to consider this carefully before rezoning it,” Sewell said. The sports park was originally to be built near High Falls in Monroe County but that deal fell through when the landowner backed out.
