Through the Archway Partnership, University of Georgia undergraduate College of Engineering students and a College of Environment and Design graduate student completed three major project ideas for the Candler Archway Partnership. These projects included mitigating a county-wide flooding and storm water management system for Caney Branch, developing a sustainable recycling plan for the City of Metter and Candler County, as well as using GIS data to map existing bike lanes and sidewalks for improvements to the Candler County/City of Metter “Metter Moves” initiative. Once the students completed their work and recommendations, Archway Professional, Catherine Muse and Operations Coordinator, Angel Jackson coordinated times and places for these students to present their work to the Candler County Executive Committee and city/county employees.
