Evermore CID Receives GATEway Grant Funds

Evermore Community Improvement District is pleased to announce that it has been awarded $50,000 in GATEway grant funds through the Georgia Department of Transportation.

Funds will be used to purchase and install landscaping along US Highway 78.  Specifically, improvements will be made to the Fly-Over Bridge at West Park Place to include plant replacements, upgrades and drainage improvements. 

“We are very pleased to have been selected to receive these funds through GDOT.” remarked, Evermore Board Chairman Chris Garner.  “We appreciate the consideration given to the CID, and we will work hard to continue to achieve attractive aesthetics for our corridor, and for those traveling Highway 78.”

GDOT Gateway grants are used to enhance state routes, by funding enduring enhancements to roadsides utilized by the traveling public.  Grants are funded through revenues collected for permits to outdoor advertising companies which allow removal of trees and other vegetation from the front of billboards.  Award recipients are selected by the Roadside Enhancement and Beautification Council, a panel of 12 members appointed by the Governor.
