Gray’s Downtown Development Authority is wasting no time getting to work on suggestions received from Georgia Department of Community Affairs experts at their April meeting.

The first item of business at the May 12 DDA meeting was a review of old business. Chairman Sherri Rollins asked DDA member Bert King for an update of the Gray Station Depot lease from Norfolk Southern Railroad.

King reported that the lease application was submitted along with a $500 nonrefundable check and he is waiting for a response. He said the next step, if accepted, is to enter into a lease with the railroad.

Under new business, Rollins said following last month’s walking tour of downtown Gray with Carmine Fischetti, manager of the DCA design studio, and Georgia Department of Community Affairs Regional Manager Lynn Ashcraft, Fischetti suggested the DDA start with a small project.

She said he recommended that project could be restoration and/or renovation of the ambulance building on the corner of West Clinton and Atlanta Highway.
