WDAM Viewpoint- Gordon's Creek Park Project

August 19, 2011

In this week's "Pride of the Pinebelt" , Colleen Donovan reports on the work by the Historic Hattiesburg Downtown Association under the leadership of current president Web Heidelberg to formulate plans for the Gordon's Creek Park Project.  We commend them for the work they have done to further enhance the downtown area as a place of beauty and recreation.  As our report said, this new walking and biking area along the creek that was the first landmark for the city of Hattiesburg, will link with other Hub City features like the Long Leaf Trace, Kamper Park and Forrest General.  It will help preserve our historic area, introduce people to our heritage, and provide a beautiful route for people to enjoy.  Projects like this help make cities more desirable places to live, work, and locate businesses.  The  Downtown Association has done a tremendous job in recent years and it is obvious that they will continue with their efforts.  We thank Mr. Heidelberg and all the other officers and members of this organization for their time and efforts on behalf of the Hub City.  I'm Jim Cameron and that's today's Viewpoint.  Write and let us know what's on your mind.
