Plans show Lake Lanier venue change
Local, state leaders tour former Olympic site, review renderings
The Lake Lanier Olympic Venue is one of Northeast Georgia’s biggest assets, and right now it needs a little love. U.S. Rep. Doug Collins toured the Olympic venue Friday with Venue Manager Morgan House, Gainesville Mayor Danny Dunagan, Hall County Commissioner Scott Gibbs, Gainesville-Hall ’96 Chairwoman Mimi Collins and architects Robin Millard and Matt Millard. The tour was an opportunity for local and state leaders to view some proposed renderings for updates to the Olympic venue, as well as Olympic memorabilia including replicas of the 1996 torches and programs from the 1996 Olympic Games rowing events.
