Victor Lord Park Expansion Project

A Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) 2018 Citizen Committee was formed in October 2016 for the purpose of soliciting citizen input concerning possible County projects to be included and providing a formal recommendation to the Board of Commissioners. The Citizen Committee met bi-monthly from October 2016-June 2017 and developed a formal SPLOST 2018 capital project recommendation. The SPLOST 2018 Referendum Resolution included a Citizen Committee recommendation for a "Level 2 Project" in the amount of $7,358,000 to fund improvements at Victor Lord Park upon the 35 +/- acres recently leased from State of Georgia. The Barrow County Board of Commissioners approved and adopted the Referendum Resolution calling for the reimposition of SPLOST on July 28th, 2017. The results of the November 7th, 2017 SPLOST Referendum were 1,644 "Yes" votes, and 604 "No" votes. Currently funded and under construction park features include: one multipurpose synthetic turf field, two multipurpose grass sodded fields, a grandstand/scoring building, park amenities/restroom building and an 8 tennis court/16 pickleball court center.
