Four Lane Castleberry “Parkway”
from
SPLOST VII and the BoC (3 of 5)

Todd Levent organized a Sept.16th meeting on the Castleberry re-widening plan in SPLOST VII with the following county officials:  Brian Tam (BoC chairman), Todd, John Cunard and Tim Allen of FC Engineering.

Our Suggested Plan for Castleberry Road

ForsythCRG members Helen Nycz, Lee Cohn, and Tony DeMaria presented what we believe is a viable plan to widen Castleberry:

Response of County Officials   

With the exception of Todd Levent who favors the 3 lane approach, the other county folks provided the following input:

Our opinion of the meeting

It is clear that if SPLOST is approved on November 8, Castleberry will be widened to 4 lane road with a 20’ median.  In late summer, Mr. Tam had stated to FCRG that he would follow Todd’s decision.  Too bad we believed!!

The FC Engineers said that the issue of 18 wheelers and/or the development of Commercial and High Density Residential was dependent upon others, but they did acknowledge that greater densities and intensities bring more trafficBottom Line: build a 4 lane  & they will come - - - What ? - - high density residential - - - - commercial - - - - - a strip mall or two - - - - - - -18 wheelers,   a “new McFarland  or Ronald Reagan Parkway  called “Castleberry Parkway”?

Conclusion

The 1,000 homeowners along Castleberry must consider if they can support the funding of the 4 lane divided roadway when they vote  on SPLOST VII on November 8.  Let District 3 Commissioner Todd Levent and other BoC members know how you feel.  Go to our website www.ForsythCRG.org for pre-addressed emails to the BoC plus more information on SPLOST VII.

Best question by a Creekside homeowner at an early October meeting: “ Why would anyone  run a 4 lane divided highway with its 18 wheelers through 2 ½ Miles of residential neighborhoods and past a Grammar School”.
