WaysSouth Voices Newsletter • Summer 2011




The Georgia Chapter of the Sierra Club and WaysSouth teamed up to hold a public meeting about I-3 on May 25, at the United Community Bank in Dahlonega, GA.  The I-3 Study’s preferred route would extend through Dahlonega and the Ellijay GA area before stretching to Knoxville, TN.   About 50 citizens from North Georgia attended the gathering. “This and other alternative routes proposed by the Federal highway consultants all create major problems in Southern Appalachia,” said Larry Winslett, Conservation Chair for the Georgia Chapter of the Sierra Club.  Our special thanks go to Larry and the other volunteers for their efforts.
