Nashville - A South Georgia town is getting big money for downtown development.

The city of Nashville received a $463,000.00 grant from the Department of Transportation. The money will be used to make downtown street improvements and build an outdoor entertainment center on the town square.

"There will be a fountain and a stage and the caboose will be there, there will be a promenade with trees and plants, and its just going to be a beautiful place for our citizens to enjoy," said Mayor Connie Perry.

"Hopefully, when we do this first part of this project it will become a progressive thing that will make all the landowners and business owners redo the whole downtown area," said Billy Retterbush, City Council Member.

The city has two years to complete the downtown development plans.
