 The Glennville Downtown Development Authority (DDA) is continuing its efforts to beautify the Stage at Barnard area.

At its most recent meeting of April 12, 2024, Casey Butler of Mercer Brooks Interiors shared her creative suggestions for enhancing the stage and the grassed area. These included fencing, landscaping, lighting, and the wrapping of the columns on the stage. In addition to another generous donation from Glennville Bank, she reported that she had received several other donations to move these plans forward. Casey showed a visual of suggested plans, and she was given approval to move forward on future solicitations of funds and a design.

For those who have not been contacted, several levels for donations are available:

  • Bronze, $1000+
  • Silver, $2500+
  • Gold, $5000+
  • Platinum, $10,000+
  • DoublePlatinum, $20,000.

Please send your contributions to Glennville DDA, c/o/ Glennville City Hall, 134 S. Veterans Blvd., Glennville, GA 30427. All contributions are appreciated. Another agenda item at the meeting was the approval for Cliff Conley to install the electrical panel at the Stage at Barnard and the transformer from Georgia Power for a cost of $1200. Other proposed electrical work includes the addition of a sub-panel and circuitry for lights and switches.

Approval was granted to Randy Peacock for the repairs on his building at 111 W. Barnard Street, repairs that are needed due to fire damage and rot from rainwater.

The DDA continues to encourage the placement of inscribed pavers at the Stage at Barnard area. These are $60 for one or $50 each if two or more are purchased at the same time. Contact Glennville City Hall to purchase one of these brick pavers to salute someone, remember a deceased loved one, class graduation date, founding year of a civic club, birth of a child, or to salute a graduate for posterity's sake.
