The project creating the new roundabout on Lower Fayetteville Road has been delayed. Once completed, it will serve as the main entrance for the Newnan Centre. 


The new roundabout project on Lower Fayetteville Road, which will create a new entrance for the Newnan Centre city meeting facility, has been delayed.

At their monthly meeting Thursday, Newnan Convention Center Authority Chairman Parks Avery said the city received one bid for the project that came in higher than expected.

It is still undetermined how the city will proceed. “It delays [the project] slightly, which we don’t really want,” said Avery.

Next week, the Newnan Centre’s street number, 1515, will be put on the existing sign for Coweta’s Centre for Performing and Visual Arts.

In other business:

• Approved was a bid of at least $19,370.65, but no more than $21,355.65 for Construction Development Company of Newnan, to enclose a room at the rear of the Newnan Centre building. The area will be used for on-site storage.

• In her report, Newnan Centre Executive Director Carol Moore said business is good, and they have already booked two events for 2015.

Additionally, Moore said she is beginning to pull information together for the auditor’s report. • Moore showed authority members recent publicity the Newnan Centre received in The Newnan Times-Herald and The Knot-Georgia magazine.

• The authority’s next meeting is Thursday, May 15 at the Newnan Centre.
