<br />Public Comment
<br />Dan Smith said there had been discussion about the lack of jobs for younger people in Peachtree
<br />City. He thought they should come up with an idea that could make some money for individuals and
<br />investors. There would have to be some government involvement in procuring property, such as the
<br />former Kmart and Stein -Mart.
<br />BMX Track Director Shayne Robinson said the previous weekend's Gold Cup Qualifiers were a huge
<br />success with 312 racers from several states. She thanked the City for its help in putting on a satisfying
<br />event. They gave participants garden flags specially designed for Peachtree City, and those who
<br />placed also got coasters. She presented a flag and coaster to the City.
<br />Suzanne Brown said 230 permits for single-family housing had been issued between October and
<br />March. She was curious how many residential lots existed in Peachtree City that did not yet have
<br />building permits, and thought that figure might be useful to Council. She did not think there should be
<br />rezonings for more residential development until traffic problems were solved.
<br />Brown also mentioned that the primary elections were May 24, and the deadline to register to vote
<br />was April 25. Early voting would begin May 5. Information was available on the Fayette County Board
<br />of Elections website.
