Plans coming for Henry Burns, Mattie Hubbard Jones Parks

Macon-Bibb Commissioners have approved agreements with WM2A Architects to create master plans and construction designs for improvements at Henry Burns Park and Mattie Hubbard Jones Park. Both of these projects will be funded by the voter-approved Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax, or SPLOST. 

The master plan for Mattie Hubbard Jones Park will cost $3,900, and the plan for Henry Burns Park will cost $3,970. Both master plans will be developed using feedback from neighbors and people that use the parks, as well as the Parks and Recreation Department.

Based on that feedback and plan, construction designs will be developed at 7.35% of construction costs. The final plans would be presented to the Macon-Bibb Commission for approval before work would begin.

Former school in East Macon becoming affordable senior housing

For the first time in more than 30 years, a new place for low-income seniors to live is coming to East Macon-Bibb. The Hunt School Village is under construction now, and it will be a 60-unit affordable rental housing development for persons 62 and older.

The $11.8-million-dollar development is possible thanks to partnership between Macon-Bibb County, In-Fill Housing, Inc., the Macon-Bibb County Housing Authority, and Stafford Builders and Consultants. 

District 3 Commissioner Elaine Lucas sees a lot of potential for the entire community because of this development. “This is an example of something wonderful that’s happening where we have this eyesore,” she says.

Macon-Bibb County celebrates first female fire chief

Chief Brenda Thomas has a passion for prevention. She’s the county’s first female to earn the rank of Chief, and as the Fire Prevention Director, she is excited to educate the community. 

“When I got here there were two other young ladies here…that was a little hope for me,” says Thomas. “Because those two ladies were here, they let me know that this may be okay for the young ladies of Macon-Bibb County that want to become, or are thinking of becoming, a firefighter.”
