Senoia DDA outlines projects

A short presentation by the Senoia Downtown Development Authority at the Jan. 18 City Council meeting revealed a wealth of information of DDA’s current activities and future plans. Among those were plans for a monthly farmer’s market, the new DDA website and a cultural arts reception tonight at the Stone Lodge.

DDA representative Wendy Maguire announced the group’s plan to initiate a farmer’s market for area growers to be held on the second Saturday of each month beginning in June. Maguire said the location of the farmer’s market is still being determined.

The presentation also included a report that the DDA website is on-line and that revisions are still being made and information is being added. The website at www.enjoysenoia.com provides information on DDA’s committees, a photo gallery, information on how residents can volunteer their time and an overview of the DDA. Upcoming sections will provide information on merchants and community events.

Maguire said the Senoia Cultural Arts Committee will host a reception at the Stone Lodge at Marimac Lake on Friday, Jan. 22 at 7 p.m. for those interested in becoming involved in the city’s efforts in the visual arts, literature, music, theater and film.

DDA is also working on plans for the upcoming annual Memorial Day Parade and Celebration to be held May 31, Maguire said.

Preparations for the summer opening of the Southern Living Idea House on the Gin Property development are underway, she said. The Southern Living Committee is currently formulating plans and priorities for the June opening, when large crowds are expected to visit the city through the June-December period.

Maguire also noted that information and applications for the DDA facade grant has been sent to all merchants. Copies of the grant are available at city hall. The application deadline is March 1, Maguire said.
