The City of Blue Ridge will hold a town hall meeting on Monday, June 1, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. The meeting will be located at City Hall, 480 West First Street. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss and receive public input regarding annexing sections of Hwy 5 & Hwy 515 right-of-way only. The portion of right-of-way to be annexed on Hwy 5 will be from the current location at Harmony Lane to 6931 Blue Ridge Drive (parcel number 0051 B 083). This ending point was selected because it is at the end of the City’s service delivery area. The portion of right-of-way to be annexed on Hwy 515 will be from the current location at Toccoa River Bridge to Forge Mill Road (parcel number 0031 087 A). This ending point was selected due to a request from the property owners. The public is encouraged to attend however, social distancing will be practiced, and everyone is encouraged to wear a mask.
