SAG’s Tony Peterman presented the results of the recent study aimed at redevelopment of Albany, Georgia’s downtown. SAG was hired by the Albany-Dougherty Inner City Authority to analyze the potential in revitalizing downtown. Of the many options presented, Peterman said that a sports park located where the Civic Center now sits could have a considerable impact. Another option presented was a residential complex at the Albany Exchange Building.
“We plan to use this report every way possible. (Interim City Manager) Tom (Berry) plans to pare it down a bit and use it at the (Albany City Commission’s) retreat this year. And I’d like to get it up on the city’s and the downtown websites. I want this available to the public.”
