Old 41 project is a dinosaur

By Barry Braun, MD, William Grow, MD, and John Gregory Odom, The Valdosta Daily Times, 30 July 2008

The three of us and our families would like to respond to the letter from Dr. Young Tillman, whom we all know and like, in which he supports the proposed four-laning of Old U.S. 41 between North Valdosta Road and Hahira. As some may know, Dr. Tillman is one of our premier land developers, responsible for several "ultra high-end" gated subdivisions in the northern part of the County.

We are some of the 500 or so landowners and other concerned citizens who have signed petitions asking the County Commission to stop this project, which we view as a horrific waste of taxpayers' money, requiring the irrevocable destruction of dozens of historic homes, churches, and family farms. This four-lane project would change, forever, the character of this whole end of the County-one of the few remaining areas where one can actually enjoy a pleasant drive. We have not decided to oppose it lightly; if this four-lane expansion were needed for safety, or to benefit the lives of those living along it, we would gladly support it and donate land to build it. But it is not needed, and it does not represent "progress" in any way we understand that term.

Road project hits pothole
