Tri-county self-taxing district paying for multi-use paths
Pedestrians and golf cart drivers can use this stretch of multi-use pathway along Ga. 211 in Braselton, thanks to the efforts of a self-taxing district of businesses in the town.
As area governments are raising or proposing to raise taxes, a small cluster of Braselton businesses is chipping in a little extra to improve connectivity among businesses and subdivisions. The Braselton Community Improvement District is going through annual steps to approve a 5-mill levy on its members to pay for multi-use paths around and along Old Winder Highway/Ga. 211 in Hall, Gwinnett and Barrow counties. “Today, you drive along that section of road and people are pushing a stroller, biking, walking and (driving) a golf cart,” CID chairman Scott Snedecor said.
