The Georgia Mountains: A View of its Resources, Problems and Potentials.
Schretter, Howard A.
In this 1964 report, it is noted that some towns and counties in the rural and urban areas of Georgia have been beset with problems associated with population growth and economic expansion, while others have been faced with combating trends of population loss and economic decline. In a unique approach to effective planning and development activities, practically all of Georgia's local governments pooled financial and technical resources to examine the region closely in terms of significant conditions, trends of the time, and outstanding problems and potentials. It was found , for example, that the most far-reaching population trend in the mountains area was its continuing loss of young people, who tended to leave home in search of better economic and social opportunities. Problems also existed in upgrading educational levels for future generations, and emphasis was placed on providing adult education and technical vocational training. The document is appended with tables of data which comprise the base of the study. (AN)
