DeKalb County Commissioner proposes funding local recreation center
By Ellie Ritter, contributor
DeKalb County Commissioner Steve Bradshaw will propose spending $42,000 to improve the Hamilton Park Recreation Center in Scottdale, according to a DeKalb County press release.
According to the release, Bradshaw will propose the allocation of the District 4 parks bond funding during the June 27 County Commission meeting. Bradshaw toured the center, located at 3262-B Chapel Street, back in April and wants to use the money to improve the facility.

Among the updates needed at the center are interior and exterior painting along with repairs to the flooring, the release said.
“This allocation of resources will provide necessary improvements to the center,” Bradshaw said.
Soon, the center will get an influx of new visitors. The nearby Tobie Grant Recreational Center is scheduled for demolition, displacing those community members and children to the Hamilton Center until a new building replaces it.
“I am committed to making policy decisions that enhance the quality of life for citizens in District 4, and it only makes sense to provide the funds to the center for long overdue improvements,” Commissioner Bradshaw said.
