City Councilman Charles Frasier is setting his sights not only on re-election to Hinesville’s first district, but he also has an eye on redevelopment.
Due to the collective efforts of the Hinesville City Council, Frasier recently took part in the groundbreaking ceremony of Irene Baker Thomas Park, which lies in his district.
The park will feature a skate park, a playground and pavilions, a walking path and a lake for fishing and boating, Assistant City Manager Kenny Howard said.
Complying with the wishes of the city, Thomas sold the land to the municipality several years ago, and Frasier said he was pleased to see the park come to fruition.
He also hopes the $540,000 park will be completed within 90 days.
Frasier also discussed the issue concerning the resuscitation of Hinesville’s downtown district.
“By redeveloping downtown, our corporate image will change, which will perpetuate a better economy,” he said. “No longer will we have to be so reliant upon Fort Stewart, and we won’t have to scale back on our finances and employment during these military deployments.”
Frasier also focused on the idea of higher education, and said he believes the proposed expansion of Armstrong Atlantic State University’s Hinesville campus is a step in the right direction.
“I still have this desire and drive to participate in the continued growth of Hinesville. This is my hometown and I love it dearly...and I hope to be reelected in my district,” he said.
For the upcoming election, Frasier is running against Robert D. Robbins for the first district city council seat.
