It’s an exciting time for East Ridge as we discovered before on Tuesday that Topgolf is formally coming to town.
With different sellers purchasing up land and building businesses, people accept this is the beginning of a rebound for the territory.
Champy’s reported in June their new area off Ringgold Road, and now gossipy tidbits about Topgolf coming to East Ridge can be put to rest.
“I said how in the world are we gonna… it just didn’t quite make sense that Topgolf would come here,” community member, John Britt said he didn’t think Topgolf would pick East Ridge.
Mayor Brian Williams said they really plan to begin development in only a month. “We’re very excited that Topgolf chose East Ridge as their destination,” said Williams.
Be that as it may, Mayor Williams said that is not it for the East Ridge people group. Eateries like Buddy’s, and the new Red Wolves soccer arena that they’ll see not far off, are giving individuals options.
“You have people coming up here from Georgia to not only look at soccer games but to hangout and it becomes a destination, almost a second downtown to just gather and have fun and go out with friends,” said Britt.
Mayor Williams said the new improvements could get income, particularly with the business charge.
“We’ve been very proud and happy that we haven’t had a tax increase and with seeing these new businesses and new developments, we’re expecting not to have to do that going forward,” said Williams.
The area of Champy’s, Topgolf and the Red Wolves arena may be prime, as well. City hall leader Williams said a huge number of vehicles travel that I-75 zone, and afterward they have local people who will bolster the organizations.
“It’s really exciting to see it come back up and be a top community and a top area where people wanna live,” said community member, Kelly Gunther.
With everything taken into account, Mayor Williams said this is an extraordinary time for the city.
Mayor Williams said Champy’s and Topgolf plan to open around spring or summer of one year from now, so the East Ridge people group can appreciate them both simultaneously.
Mayor Williams likewise noticed that there could be more advancements in transit. He wouldn’t state what precisely, yet he said it resembles a trickle effect and when one new business comes, it can bring others
