The Tyrone Downtown Development Authority (DDA) is excited to unveil "Neighbors," a fresh culinary venture set to help revitalize the heart of Tyrone. After a proposal and interview process, the 'Neighbors' team was awarded an RFQ to partner with the DDA to renovate the old firehouse in the heart of Tyrone’s Town Center District (Downtown) across from Town Hall. This innovative project will transform the property into a modern restaurant, breathing new life into Tyrone’s core.
At the forefront of this endeavor is Executive Chef Collins Woods, a Fayette County native celebrated for his culinary expertise working with singer/songwriter Zac Brown at Camp Southern Ground and as his personal chef. While Collins has catered to stars from Chris Hemsworth to Emeril Lagasse, bringing his unique Southern flavors to his home in Fayette County holds a special place in his heart. “I’ve long dreamed of this,” Collins shared, “Crafting a memorable meal is an art - from selecting quality ingredients to passionate execution. 'Neighbors' is the culmination of this vision, and I can't wait to share it with Tyrone.”
The essence of "Neighbors" goes beyond just food. Collins envisions it as a hometown hangout, reminiscent of a backyard barbecue where everyone is family. “It's about community and connections. Good neighbors care for each other, and good food brings them together. That's the spirit we're infusing into 'Neighbors',” he added. The Chairman of the Tyrone Downtown Development Authority, Billy Campbell, stated that the DDA was “looking forward to working with Mr. Woods” and that “this will be a great partnership to kickstart the great things happening in Town.”

Tyrone, GA - During the council meeting held on May 18th, the Town of Tyrone recognized the outstanding contributions of four interns from Sandy Creek High School (SCHS) who participated in the Fayette County Board of Education (FCBOE) Work-Based Learning (WBL) program at Town Hall. These talented individuals left a lasting impact in various departments, including Engineering, Environmental Management, Community Development, Library Services, and Parks & Recreation.
The FCBOE Work-Based Learning program aims to provide students with real-world experiences and opportunities to apply their classroom knowledge, preparing them for the professional world. Through internships with different town departments, these students acquired valuable skills and gained insights into their chosen career paths.
Among the interns acknowledged were Brooke Loyd and Vince Phan, who showcased their exceptional skills while working on Engineering and Environmental Management projects. Both demonstrated a keen eye for detail and actively contributed to ongoing projects, providing valuable data on the town's infrastructure using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) programs. Their passion for environmental management was evident as they worked closely with the Town's Environmental Management Specialist, consolidating data related to stormwater management facilities.
The Community Development Department welcomed Kaila Hudson, who proved to be an exceptional asset. Her strong interpersonal skills and attention to detail made her an integral part of various projects. Kaila learned CAD programs to assist in creating renderings for future town projects, and her graphic design skills were put to use in reformatting the Comprehensive Plan into a shorter, more engaging story map for citizens to experience.
The contributions of Ms. Ryan Lewis greatly benefited the Library and Parks & Recreation departments. As an intern, Ryan exhibited tremendous enthusiasm in promoting community engagement through library and recreation programs. She played a key role in developing graphic design content for residents of all ages, enhancing the experience of these programs.
The Town of Tyrone, in partnership with Sandy Creek High School and the FCBOE Work-Based Learning program, will continue to offer internship opportunities for students, allowing them to gain valuable experience. The town is grateful for the tangible difference these interns have made and recognizes the importance of investing in the development of young talent, thereby fostering a prosperous future for Tyrone.
As the council meeting concluded, the interns received applause for their exceptional dedication and contributions. Their achievements serve as a testament to the significance of nurturing young talent and cultivating a bright future for Tyrone.

The Town Council passed updates to sections 6-1 and 6-9 of its Code of Ordinances pertaining to the restraint of animals during its March 16, 2023 meeting.
Effective immediately, animals cannot be restrained/tethered to a fixed point and left unattended within the Town Limits. Animals may be fastened to a cable trolley system for no more than four (4) hours at a time. Regardless of the length of time, animals cannot be left fastened to a trolley system between the hours of 10pm and 6am. When fastened to an authorized cable trolley system, the owner or keeper must be present on the property.
These changes reflect similar changes adopted by Fayette County earlier this month and by Peachtree City in 2022. The goal is to ensure the comfort and safety of animals by preventing the neglect that often results from long-term tethering. These changes do not restrict an owner from keeping their animals in a proper fence or pen.
