More of a campus really. Hopefully they'll maintain the majority of the structure and have a minimal impact on JB. There was talk about putting in a performing arts center there in the summer but I'm pretty sure that is off the books now. The park reconstruction has been going on for a year now I believe. Well see what happens with this project and what kind of effect it will have on the river.

I attended some seminars at the elevated building many, many years ago. Its elevated design was recognized as having minimal impact on the environment.

This was the intention of the architect that designed the campus. I worked for the real estate and facilities division of Fiserv a few years ago before they relocated to Alpharetta, and got to meet and talk to the architect. As you said, the buildings were put on stilts as to not interfere with the movement of the animals (mostly deer) to and from the river.

Wish I had been introduced to fly fishing when I still worked out there

If you believe that someone is poaching deer, by all means, report it to Eddie Tompkins and Eric Saunders. They are the local Game Wardens responsible for the area. Nothing gets Eddie more fired up than catching a poacher and he's **** good at it.

BTW, it's legal to use firearm in Gwinnett, just must meet the minimum distance requirements.

I seriously doubt that it is legal to even possess a firearm in the parks around JB.

It's not really designated hunting land...also I looked at the parks boundaries and east jb (state) goes only about till the creek up past the bridge. The woods past the creek I have no clue who owns...I'm guessing federal....haven't seen any boundary signage. Guesstimating probably a good 30-40acres of woods and would easily clear the minimum distance requirements which I believe are 50 yards in Gwinnett. Thanks for the info.

I live in Gwinnett, there's a small patch of woods behind my house where deer are shot sometimes......In the past, I have called and called to every agency , fed and state and local, to find out a "minimum distance" law or rule about shooting near houses....Nobody could give me an answer, and all referred me to another agency, mostly someone I had already called,...A vicious government circle with no answers....If anyone knows of an actual law or rule, please let me know where to find it....
