The Georgia Sports Hall of Fame got another stamp of approval Tuesday that should mean the museum would remain open in Macon for the next year, with an option for two more one-year contracts.
“This whole thing is designed to save the Sports Hall of Fame,” said attorney Chix Miller shortly after the Development Authority of Bibb County on Tuesday agreed to sign a resolution approving a lease of the hall of fame from the state to the authority. It also agreed to a management agreement between the authority and NewTown Macon, which will take over management of the hall of fame.
“The lease runs for one year with options for two more years,” Miller said.
The Peyton Anderson Foundation has already paid the money for the first year, he said.
