THE LET’S GET IT DONE INITIATIVE

DEVLIN CLEVELAND FOR DISTRICT 2 COUNTY COMMISSIONER

My Initiatives are focused on Planning, Collaboration and Execution

A great scripture from the King James Version of the Bible:

Habakkuk 2: 2-3  reads “And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that reads it.  For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end, it shall speak, and not lie:  though it tarry, wait for it, because it will surely come, it will not tarry.”

As we plan for the future of our great county we must take the time and listen to the needs of the people, not of our own. So as your next Henry County Commissioner for District 2 I have been taking this race to the streets and talking with elected officials, residents and business owners about what Henry County really needs and I HAVE A PLAN. My plan includes initiatives that will not only move our county forward but will ensure that every hard-working resident of Henry county can have the best quality of life and something to look forward to for the future.

Infrastructure:

  • Potholes – Residents should not have to worry about replacing tires due to the poor condition of our roads. Equip the county DOT with the manpower and funding to address potholes and patch streets.
  • Resurfacing – allocate available state DOT grant funding towards resurfacing major secondary roads.
  • Roads & Traffic Congestion
    • Collaborate with Georgia DOT and the cities to procure much-needed state funding for road widening projects.
    • Work with residents during next year’s update of the comprehensive transportation plan to develop both short-term and long-range plans.
  • Prioritize striping and pavement markers on local roads and consider street lighting at intersections.
  • Promote walkable communities by ensuring sidewalks are constructed alongside new road projects.
  • Exit Ramps – Exits 212 to 228
    • Explore innovative solutions like diverging diamond interchanges to improve traffic flow.
    • Invest in smart traffic signals to improve signal timing and enable signal prioritization for public safety.

Our Public Safety:

  • First Responders
    • Support first responders through equipment purchases and timely fleet replacement.
  • Fire Stations
    • Work with the city of Hampton and county staff to identify the best possible location for the upcoming rebuild of Fire Station 5.
  • Police Stations
    • Pursue constructing the district II police precinct at Henry Town Center to support our commercial activity center and tenants.

Parks and Recreation:

  • Give the Cities their Parks
    • Transition management of local parks to the cities and help them beautify the parks so that all residents can enjoy the great outdoors.
  • Nash Farm
    • Preserve the passive beauty of Nash Farm while launching a community garden and funding needed repairs to the existing buildings.
  • Fix the Parks
    • Our parks should never reach a state of ill-repair that requires their long-term closure, as seen at Cochran Park in Stockbridge. Ensure basic upkeep needs at parks are funded to keep our kids safe. 
  • Major League Sports
    • Encourage our local major league sports teams to host events for the youth at our local parks and facilities. Some examples include Little League Baseball Championships, Flag Football, Cheerleading, Gymnastics, etc.

Health Care:

  • Senior Citizen Home Health
    • One in four Henry County residents is estimated to be 65 years of age or older by the year 2050. Support developers interested in building additional senior housing in the county.
  • Hospitals
    • Support Piedmont Henry in their role as the county’s primary hospital.

Collaboration:

Meet with all levels of government to listen, plan and execute.

  • Federal and State – partner with other commissioners when representing Henry County to ensure one voice is heard by Congress and the state government.
  • Municipalities – build a positive working relationship with the Mayors and City Council in all four of our cities to provide support for the cities and county.
  • Workforce Development – prepare our students and young people for careers in high demand skill-sets.
    • Partner with Southern Crescent Technical College to promote their computer information and technical programs.
    • Support the continued build-out of the SCTC McDonough campus.
    • Collaborate with the school board to introduce aviation careers to our high schoolers so that they are better prepared to pursue careers at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, south metro Atlanta’s largest employer.
