CITY OF CAMILLA TO IMPLEMENT MAIN STREET PROGRAM

The City of Camilla is in the process of developing and implementing a Main Street Program in downtown Camilla. Main Street Director Jenny Bostick is looking forward to working with local downtown merchants, business owners, and others in the community.

The Main Street Program will be a great asset to downtown Camilla. For more than 30 years, the Georgia Main Street Program, a Department of Community Affairs program, has assisted numerous communities in supporting and encouraging the downtown areas to become more and more vibrant, thus revitalizing downtowns and creating great futures for its citizens by adding businesses, increasing patronage to the current businesses, and encouraging citizens to take pride in their downtown area.

The City of Camilla will begin the startup process to become a nationally accredited Main Street Community as soon as the application process opens this year. Currently considered a Network Affiliate, the City can utilize the resources through the Georgia Department of Community Affairs, including design assistance, financial planning, downtown training, and networking, etc.

"I see us working with the Camilla Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Development Authority of the City of Camilla, and the Mitchell County Economic Development Authority, as well as others in the community, as partners to encourage more sustainable local economics and building places that meet the needs and desires of our neighbors," stated Jenny Bostick. "Teamwork is the key to any successful endeavor." As Billy Peppers, Director of the Office of Downtown Development with the Georgia Department of Community Affairs says, "Just as it is often said that it takes a village to raise a child, we truly believe that it takes a diverse, engaged, and positive team to save and improve a downtown, as well as celebrate the spirit of downtowns."

For further information regarding the City's Main Street Program, contact Main Street Director Jenny Bostick at (229) 336-2220 extension 239. The Main Street Office is located on the second floor of City Hall.
