How well do you know Lake Lanier?
Lake Lanier has been an integral part of our community for many years, serving as a source of recreation, tourism, and drinking water. However, the name of the lake has been a topic of controversy due to its association with Sidney Lanier, a soldier who served briefly in the Confederate army, but also was Poet Laureate of Georgia. We want to know your thoughts on whether Lake Lanier should be renamed and, if so, what it should be renamed to. Your input is important as we consider the future of this beloved landmark. Please take a few moments to complete this survey and share your thoughts with us.
