CSH redevelopment awaits legislative push



Currently, it takes legislation passed during a three-month session at the beginning of each year to transfer property. 

These three documents and other campus related development points such as DOC building demolition dollars and home renovations for war veterans are included in a scheduled briefing with Gov. Deal next month.

Georgia Senate and House State Property Committee members are meeting at CSH this Monday, which should speed the legislative push.

“With their help, we will be able to transition this property to viable, tax paying businesses in the near future, “ State Rep. Rusty Kidd said Wednesday.

Currently, the CSH authority has three business proposals on the table. These and others depend on the legislative result.

The CSHLRA is working on a “Film Ready” designation to bring awareness to the cause also. CSH property provides countless movie options.

“All the activity a film production crew brings to a site is remarkable,” Couch said. “It's a tremendous boost to film in Georgia right now.”

Couch said every taxpayer in the state has interest the CSH.

“We have to maintain and have the appropriated support to keep those buildings in some sense of stability. Anything we do as a development authority has to be in the best interest of taxpayers,” the CSHLRA director said. “We'll keep pushing.”

The next Eggs & Issues gathering Wednesday, Oct. 9 will discuss Unification.
