Dunwoody officials are disappointed by the Georgia Music Hall of Fame Authority’s decision to turn down the city’s bid to display Georgia’s musical heritage.
On March 31, the authority voted to scrap the bids from four cities hoping to become the location of the Georgia Music Hall of Fame: Athens, Dunwoody, Woodstock and its current home of Macon, the Associated Press reported. The hall will remain in Macon for at least another year, according to the AP.
“Obviously we’re very disappointed,” said Danny Ross, a Dunwoody city councilman and the chairman of the Dunwoody Music Conservancy. “I think we provided a proposal that was very visionary.” Dunwoody proposed creating an interactive experience at the hall and using rotating exhibits to keep visitors coming.
The Dunwoody group had a hard time selling its vision for the hall, and at one point, its proposal was ranked last among the competing cities.
