Upson Wants Sprewell Bluff

Upson County Commissioner Steve Hudson has asked the state to give Sprewell Bluff Park to the county. The park is about 50 acres of the some 1300 acres the state owns.

Hudson and chairman Maurice Raines met with state DNR Commissioner Chris Clark recently in Atlanta and Hudson made the suggestion, which drew a chuckle from the commissioner.

At Tuesday’s meeting, Chairman Raines said it might not happen but the state seems ready to work out a long term agreement. The county is already picking up trash and doing little things as DNR suffers from the budget crunch.

The commissioners indicated they would like to use future SPLOST funds to make recreation improvements at the park.

  1. I think Upson should be given the park... If our tax money is going to be used to care for the place, why should the state maintain ownership?
