Neighborhood to use old Boy Scout hut in Henry Burns Park

The building in the picture above may be familiar to many of you - it housed Boy Scout Troop #5 starting in 1932. It's been empty for a while, but now a neighborhood association will be responsible for upkeep and use. They're renting it from the county for $1.00 a year. You can read more about the agreement in the commission resolution. 

Macon-Bibb resident Garrison Hammontree was part of Troop 5 and became an Eagle Scout in the 1960's when he was 13 years old. "This hut played a big role in my life as a child and as a teenager. I'm glad to see it's still standing and that there's a plan to take care of it. It's a big part of this community," said Hammontree.

Commission renames Rosa Jackson Center Gymnasium

The Rosa Jackson Recreation Center on Maynard Street just reopened after a year of major upgrades and renovations! There's a brand new gym, but the old gym holds many stories, and it's still there (pictured above.) Now, it will bear a name to match its legacy. The gym is now officially called the James E. Smith Gymnasium. The athlete and community leader has made major contributions to the surrounding neighborhoods and was Parks & Recreation Department's Rec Center Director from 1989 to 2015. You can read more about Mr. Smith here.
