City leaders work to bring shops to East Albany

July 25, 2004

Albany -- Albany leaders say they hope new businesses and community support will help breathe new life back into one of the city's most depressed areas.

Many people in East Albany say they're tired of traveling across town to shop and eat and they want more businesses in their neighborhood. City Commissioner Jon Howard is holding a public forum Monday night to discuss ways to transform East Albany into a vibrant shopping district.

"Most  residents in East Albany  are upset because they pay taxes in the city but they have to go to another part of Albany to get what they need," says Howard.

The President of the Albany Chamber of Commerce and UGA Economic Analyst William Russell will be guests at the forum which is Monday night at 6:30 at the East Albany Community Center.
