I have lived now almost 31 years in The North Georgia Mountains. It is an incredible amount of time. The main thing I have noticed for the most part is controlled growth.
Some of our counties in the Mountains like Fannin and Union have massive amounts of space set aside for forest. Gilmer and Dawson do as well. Pickens lags a little bit behind. But the approach in Pickens has been to control growth. So what does it all mean ?
If your have been here 30 plus years the pizza is better, (spoken like a true New Yorker) restaurants are better and more varied,.There are more super markets and stores in general. But the beauty of the mountains has been maintained. In Pikcens county for example the Mountain preservation act specifies that any new large tract over a certain elevation coming on to the market cannot be divided into tracts less that 10 acres. So a 50 acre tract can only have 5 lots. . Older homes are obviously grandfarthered in. This is one way we preserve our beauty. So if you are looking for a life style that you thought may be extinct The good news is the North Georgia Mountains are here and still beautiful. Let us the pros at All Mountain Realty help you find your mountain dream. You can visit us on line at www.allmountainrealty.com.
