They also received a letter from Southeastern Archeological Services which summarized the two documents. The survey found two prehistoric archeological sites that are of some significance to Georgia's past. They recommended that it be made eligible to the National Register of Historic Places at the local level of interest. It was their recommendation to avoid both archeological sites so that they may be preserved for future study. If this Is not possible, then mitigation through a data recovery program would be recommended. The total cost for this data recovery program would cost approximately $30,000 to $40,000, and the field work phase should take about three to four weeks. The "Survey of Protected Species" showed there was no protected species in the area. Chairman Good said that no action needed to be taken at this time, but to be aware that the data recovery program would have to be done at some time during the future planning. V. Brigham suggested that when this recovery program has been completed, to turn over the finding to the new Peachtree City Library History Room. Chairman Good concurred but told the Authority that the findings are now being sent to the University of Georgia because of their facil itles to hold and display this type of material, but that something could be worked out with the City In order to do this.
