The application, submitted in late May, requests that the Blairsville-based group be permitted to adopt a mile of the Zell Miller Mountain Parkway, which is Georgia Highway 515 in Union County.
According to the Associated Press, state officials may be forced to choose between allowing the request or denying it, forcing a likely legal battle against the organization. A third option for the state may spell the end of the 23-year-old program, which permits signs to be posted for groups who volunteer to help clean up and beautify state highways.
The Georgia Department of Transportation is reviewing the request. Officials plan to meet with lawyers from the offices of state Attorney General Sam Olens Monday to discuss the request and how they should proceed.
