Albany - The face of downtown Albany is changing, and now Albany Tomorrow Inc. is bringing in new faces to handle big projects. The Flint River Center is under construction, and groundbreaking is set for March on a new law enforcement complex.
On the surface, the site of the Flint River Center hasn't changed much since its groundbreaking, but the real work is going on underground. "We are building some underground supports," said ATI President Tommy Chatmon. "So far, construction is on schedule."
The next step is the $25,000,000 project is hiring someone to run the place. ATI board member approved next year's budget which includes about $80,000 for the RFC director's salary. "It's important that we go ahead and hire someone to fill this position," said Chatmon. "The director needs to be involved with the design and construction of the building."
Also in the budget, $60,000 for the salary of a Downtown Manager. "Resumes for the position are already coming in. This person will schedule events for our community to enjoy," said Chatmon.
Chatmon ensured members that a new political administration won't effect the River Center. "The money for River Center has already been approved and allocated by the General Assembly."
The next project scheduled for downtown Albany is a new law enforcement center. Groundbreaking is set for March. Emily Jean McAffee was also named the new ATI board chairman, replacing Harold Gresham who resigned last month.
