Leadership Position Changes

Posted on Jul 6 2016 - 10:06am

If adults in your Pack/Troop/Crew change positions, please remember that a new application must be turned in for them designating the new position. The application must be complete with all signatures and include proof of YPT, but payment is not needed since they are already registered in your unit. Many units are changing Cub/Scout Masters and Committee Chairs this summer, but unless you turn in an application to the Council, the right person will not be contacted for pertinent things and the position change is not official. Please handle this ASAP. If you have questions, contact your unit commissioner or District Executive. Thank you, Delaney Webb, Button Gwinnett District Executive

County to present preliminary plans for Simpsonwood Park

Posted on Jun 15 2016 - 9:00am

Simpsonwood Park is back in the news, as Gwinnett County Parks and Recreation has come up with early plans to make the park more accessible. The park’s Steering Committee is scheduled to hear a preliminary design on June 16 before adopting a master plan for the park. However, no funding has been allocated to the concept yet, which is expected to eventually come from SPLOST funds.

The overall park concept is for the area to be primarily a passive park, with 1.5 miles of paved walking trails, and parking areas. Already, the county has spent over $900,000 in demolishing several older buildings along the Chattahoochee River. The land was originally purchased by the county for a total cost of $14 million, of which the City of Peachtree Corners contributed $2 million.
