Douglas Co. Official Wants You to Call Him at Home & Tell Him Your Thoughts About Tomorrowworld

Bless his little heart.

Call Douglas County Commissioner Mike Mulcare at home, and tell him your thoughts on Tomorrowwworld. 770-920-9366

Douglas County Commissioner Mike Mulcare is on a quixotic quest to stop Tomorrowworld.

Despite hearing nothing but praise for Tomorrowworld from Fulton County Commissioner Robb Pitts, Mulcare has called a community meeting to "focus on effective actions and strategies" to combat Tomorrowworld.

Tomorrowworld is a festival held last month in Fulton County, where 140,000 people from over seventy different countries gathered to hear the world's best DJs drop their best beats. With the eyes of the mainstream media upon the music festival, Tomorrowworld was widely regarded as a success, with only seventeen medical incidents and five arrests reported. That is nothing short of impressive, given the number of folks who attended this large scale event.

The letter from Douglas County Commissioner Mike Mulcare to his constituents is posted below in its entirety. And yes, he wants people to call him at home with their comments about Tomorrowworld.

Dear Friends and Neighbors –

I know that we have just experienced the worst l-o-n-g weekend in Douglas County history for noise penetrating our homes, destroying restful sleep for entire families and dreadfully impacting our quality of life in many ways. It’s time to discuss what our options might be going forward.

I ask you to attend a community meeting. While we will certainly air many grievances over this event, the main purpose will be to focus on effective actions and strategies in a community meeting.

Date: Saturday, Oct. 19

Location: Shepherd of the Hill United Methodist Church (corner of Chapel Hill Rd and Dorsett Shoals)

Time: 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.

By this date I expect to have in hand a resolution from the Douglas County Commission clearly addressing this issue with Fulton County. I will be meeting with Chairman Eaves of Fulton County on Monday, Oct. 14.

I will also ask that we form an “action committee” to keep momentum focused, unrelenting and in the hands of impacted citizens. Volunteers for this committee are welcome to email ahead of the meeting.

Please contact me if you have any questions. Finally, please forward this message to neighbors as you feel appropriate.

Regards - Mike
