Chattahoochee Hills receives MillionMile Greenway grant

The City of Chattahoochee Hills is one step closer to realizing its long-term vision to create an 18-acre park in the “Lost City of Campbellton.” Recently purchased from Fulton County, the site offers the possibility of easy access to the Chattahoochee River for the first time and also includes the oldest house in Fulton County.

In recognition of impressive progress so far, a grant valued at $10,000 was awarded to Chattahoochee Hills by MillionMile Greenway, an Atlanta nonprofit that helps grassroots groups plan and build parks and trails. The grant combines a cash award and in-kind services from MMG’s mentors in marketing and consensus building.

“We are a small city with a limited budget and huge natural assets to protect. We couldn’t do that without the help of outside experts like MillionMile Greenway,” said Chattahoochee Hills Mayor Tom Reed. “Their help will allow us to increase community participation, and will help us ensure that the output of related grants we’re applying for will be efficiently implemented to maximum benefit for the community,” continued Mayor Reed.
