Cherokee County will host a second public interest meeting on Tuesday to gather input on forming a community-driven cleanup initiative to help keep Cherokee County beautiful.
During the meeting, which will start at 6:30 p.m. in the Hickory Flat Fire Station Community Room at 7675 Vaughn Road in Canton, participants will have the opportunity to collaborate on ideas with leaders of the program.
“We received lots of feedback and interest from the community at our first meeting in June,” Cherokee County District 3 Commissioner Benny Carter said. “Like many of you, I am interested in protecting and helping our environment. I hope that the information received from this second meeting will help us narrow down some of the issues and develop a community-drive and county-wide plan to keep Cherokee clean, green and beautiful.”
While parameters may change before Tuesday's meeting, Cherokee County is prepared to host the event with social distancing in mind. Currently, the community rooms are open and allow for a maximum gathering of 50 people to comply with the executive order issued by Gov. Brian Kemp. If the governor’s office loosens restrictions, the interest meeting would be able to accommodate more people. To help the county plan better for attendance at the event, those interested in attending should email Cherokee County Recycling Center Manager Troy Brazie at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot.
Cherokee County Commissioners hope the meeting will help establish a unified vision for the program going forward. To learn more about the event, visit Cherokee County’s Facebook and Instagram pages.
