BRASELTON - Braselton celebrated another chapter in its long-range visioning process by hosting a traditional groundbreaking ceremony thursday for its StreetScape project.

Congressman Doug Collins was the featured guest along with Georgia Department of Transportation Commissioner Keith Golden and board member Jamie Boswell.

Mayor Bill Orr commented, "This is another step in our visioning process which began twenty years ago. We've partnered with the Georgia Department of Transportation to realign the state highways through downtown and now partner in this StreetScape project to build safe sidewalks, signage, pedestrian plazas, public parking and what is described as our 'sensitive makeover' downtown.

Rep. Collins complimented town officials for the vision and beautification, indicating both are key elements of economic recovery and long term progress in many small towns of northeast Georgia.

BM&K of Jackson County is the general contractor for the StreetScape project with an estimated completion date of late fall.
