Brookhaven, GA, March 8, 2017 – by Anna Williams for The Post – Brookhaven Councilmembers approved an extra $20,000 for the completion of the Clack’s Corner Park renovation project during their February 28th meeting. According to City Manager Christian Sigman, the additional funds will be used to construct three benches and a swing that were originally planned, but pulled from the list of improvements after the project met the original budgeted amount of $177,000.
Sigman also told Councilmembers that in the future, instead of just going a head and pulling items from expected project plans, he and Staff would communicate better with Council so it does not come as a surprise to them.
The additional items are expected to be installed in the near future. A ribbon cutting for the newly renovated park was planned recently, but inclement weather resulted in the event being cancelled until a later date.
Clack’s Corner is a .2 acre parcel where Howard Clack, described as “a gentle man and an artist” lived most of his life. His family preserved this land for a neighborhood greenspace in his honor. The Clack’s Corner plan is part of the individual park master plans completed by the firm Greenberg Farrow in February of 2016.
Renovations already completed in the Park include:
- Informational Kiosk
- Monument Sign
- New Irrigation and Drainage
- New Brick Paver with Cobblestone Edged Pathways
- New Sod in Community Lawn
Clack’s Corner is located at 1410 Cartecay Drive NE.
