Per the settlement agreement between the City of Hapeville, Georgia, and Outfront Media LLC, executed on February 21st, 2015, the City of Hapeville has access to one spot, six times per year for a period of two weeks at a time, for specific uses. Currently this space is not being utilized and the Hapeville Main Street Board would like permission to work directly with Outfront Media, on behalf of the City of Hapeville, in accordance with the terms of the settlement. The Main Street Board's intent is to insert the already existing “Hapeville, A home for the arts” billboard into the current rotation and as the default marketing message for the billboards, as well as updating and changing billboards in the future.
Councilman Adams recommends that the City of Hapeville establishes a PIE program to partner with Tri-Cities High School, Hapeville Charter Middle School and Career Academy, and Hapeville Elementary School to exchange resources, services, and other forms of support. The collaborative relationship could benefit both partners, but ultimately improves educational opportunities for children. Additionally, a more involved community aids in higher performing schools; thus, having a positive correlation on a city’s viability and economic growth potential.
