Good Hope Convenience Center temporarily closed due to construction of new fire station

GOOD HOPE, GA (Jan. 13, 2023) – Officials with Walton County announced that the Good Hope Convenience Center located at Nunnally Shoals Road is temporarily closed while Walton County Fire Rescue Station 7 is being rebuilt. WCFR Fire Station 7 was destroyed by a fire in April last year and Walton County Board of Commission members decided the best way forward was to build a new fire station at the same location. The construction of the new fire station, at a cost of $3 million, was approved by the BOC in May last year and construction is now underway.

The closest convenience center to that location for residents to use in the meantime is Whatley Convenience Center at 2620 Whitney Road SE.

“People are also encouraged to dispose of garbage at the Walton County Keep Walton Beautiful Recycling Center located at 2051 Leroy Anderson Road, Monroe, GA 30655,” Walton County public information officer Patrice Broughton said in a press release.
