Fulton County invites residents to a community meeting on Thursday, August 15, 2019 to learn more about the planned construction of a new animal shelter and give their input.
The meeting take place from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at the Helene S. Mills Senior Multipurpose Facility, 515 John Wesley Dobbs Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30312.
This is the last in a series of three meetings across Fulton County.
Residents will hear updates from Fulton County leaders along with Animal Arts and PGAL, the firms conducting the feasibility study for the planned new animal shelter, as well as from Lifeline Animal Project, the current animal service provider. Participants will also participate in a feedback framework. The current Fulton County Animal Shelter was constructed in 1978. The population of Fulton County has grown considerably in that time and a new shelter is needed.
The feasibility study currently underway was approved by the Board of Commissioners in May 2019 and is the first step in planning for a new animal services facility. The study will provide insight on site selection, space requirements, improvements, and operational needs.
