Drag strip petition to be withdrawn

Petitioner Donnie Clack plans to reintroduce petition upon completion of more research

Donnie Clack announced at a meeting held Wednesday night in Social Circle that he is withdrawing his request to petition for the building of a drag strip from the planning and zoning committee.

Clack also unveiled a redesign of the site, which would place the drag strip further back in the property and help insulate better against noise. The new plan also abolished the controversial camp site.

Clack stated that more studies would be done and more information would be prepared, and that he would reintroduce the petition at a later date.

Representative Doug Holt (R-Social Circle) has also stated his intention to introduce legislature that would de-annex Clack's property and several adjoining lots from the city of Social Circle, thus making the drag strip site a Newton County decision. Clack advised he planned to introduce the petition at a later date regardless of whether the property stays in Social Circle or returns to Newton County jurisdiction.
