The Hall County Board of Supervisors denied a request to close Elm Island Road Tuesday.

The Whooping Crane Trust and Trevor Johnson, the only landowners along the road, had requested a gate to keep out vandals and loiterers. They cited both ecological and private property reasons.

But the board chose to keep the status quo, with only Board President Pam Lancaster casting a dissenting vote.

Both petitioners said they were disappointed, but accept the board's decision.

"We just think having a gate at the entrance of 281 would prohibit that. However I respect the county's decision. They have a job and an obligation to do as well. Unfortunately it is what it is," Johnson said.
