On Friday,November 6, 2015, the sun shone brightly at the site of the new public parking lot in Warm Springs as Mr. Quinton Robinson, State Director for US Department of Agriculture's Rural Development Program, made the official announcement that the City of Warm Springs had been awarded a $71,000 grant for the parking lot.

In accepting the grant, Mayor Robert Prater said, "Several years ago, Mayor Sheila Conley and the Warm Springs City Council purchased this land with the idea of a downtown parking lot. They took a lot of criticism for the purchase, but today we are seeing the wisdom of that decision as the Bulloch House completes the renovations of the old Victoria Tea Room to relocate, temporarily in downtown Warm Springs."

Mayor Prater continued by saying, "With the assistance of the Meriwether County Public Works Department, and donations, the parking lot should be ready to use by the time the Bulloch House opens. We will use the USDA money for engineering, paving, stripping and landscaping.

May is Motorcycle Awareness Month

Posted by Lisa Thompson City Clerk on May 8, 2012 at 9:15 AM Comments comments (0)

May is Motorcycle Awareness Month American Bikers Active Toward Education [ABATE] is Georgia's Premier Motorcycle Rights Organization, working on protecting the rights of motorcyclist across Georgia every day. During the month of May we work extra hard to protect not only the rights of motorcyclist but their lives as well. Over 70% of fatalities involving motorcycle riders is a direct result of a motorist violating our right of way. Making a left hand turn in front of a motorcycle, proceeding through a stop sign and lack of directional signals or brake lights are all situations that kill or injure hundreds of riders each year in Georgia. "I did not see them" is the #1 phrase that is repeated over and over again. They were not aware that we were there. Because we are smaller motorist often misjudge the distance between themselves and us or miscalculate the speed at which we are traveling. Shrubs and tree limbs at intersections can obscure the drivers vision of us. Lack of Awareness is a killer. There are numerous situations where a second look would have prevented a tragedy. A second look takes only a second and can spare you a life of regret and others a life of sorrow. Look around you as you drive, put down the cell phone, avoid distractions, LOOK then LOOK again. A popular slogan can be OUR best friend "Look Twice Save a Life Motorcycles are Everywhere." Don't limit Awareness to May. Be aware every day.

Camera Ready Communities taking Off with a BANG!

Posted by Lisa Thompson City Clerk on September 20, 2011 at 10:00 AM Comments comments (0)


The Georgia Production Partnership (GPP) had a dynamic impact on this year's Governor's Tourism Conference.

During the conference, Governor Nathan Deal and the Georgia Film, Music and Digital Entertainment Office designated 23 Georgia additional counties as Camera Ready Communities. The program, originally created by GPP, now includes 112 counties across the state. Georgia is the only state that has developed a program like this.

According to state officials, more than 327 film and television productions were shot in Georgia during the fiscal year that ended June 30, delivering an economic impact of $2.4 billion.

Movies filmed in Georgia include the recently released "Contagion", shot at Atlanta's Center for Disease Control, the upcoming remake of "Footloose" and "Wanderlust" starring Jennifer Aniston.

Georgia can also be seen on the small screen with Season 3 of the CW's "The Vampire Diaries" and AMC's "The Walking Dead" returning this fall.

Other highlights from the event included a GPP hosted lunch where they premiered the Albany Tourism TV commercials, the grand prize for GPP's online media contest where cities from around Georgia sent in "location stills" to help build the files at the Georgia Film, Music an Digital Entertainment Office.

In addition to lunch, GPP hosted a booth during the trade show to build awareness of the film industry in the state of Georgia. Attendees who visited the GPP booth were asked to add their voice to the filmmaking industry in Georgia.

GPP also sponsored three vacation give-aways that were won by:

1. Craig Doominey - The Mansion on Peachtree Spa Gift Package

2. Dawn Malin - The Northeast Georgia Wine Experience

3. Tony Alexander - The Lake Lanier Island Fantasy of Lights Experience
