3-22-13 DNR

Over the last six months, Breedlove Land Planning has been performing Condition Assessment reports for over a dozen Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites.  Working with the Department of Natural Resources, our firm was tasked with inventorying existing assets at these various sites throughout the State, and providing an analysis as to their current conditions.  The result is a series of documents which will help the Department of Natural Resources make development and improvement choices throughout the Park and Historic Site system and determine future funding needs.

New Yurt Campsite Under Construction at Cloudland Canyon State Park

What do traditional Turkic nomads have in common with northwest Georgia?  Yurts.  The Georgia Department of Natural Resources hired Breedlove Land Planning to design and observe the construction of eight new yurt campsites at Cloudland Canyon State Park.  This new campsite will have a full comfort station, picnic pavilion, playground and trail access to the canyon loop trail system.  These modern day yurt structures will each sit upon individualize platforms (above) and have front and back decks that take advantage of views of this Cumberland Plateau ecosystem.  Construction should be finished in November, 2012.
