Albany - People in east Albany want a cleaner community with more businesses. That was the result of a recent study by the Economic Development Commission.

About 400 people, living in east Albany, were asked questions about what type of businesses and attractions they want in their community. Most said they wanted more family style restaurants, clothing and shoes stores, and better grocery stores.

"I would like to see more recreation," said East Albany resident Eva Scott. "I would also like to see a movie theater back on this side of town so we would have to go to so far to see a movie."

"We need more shopping and grocery stores on this side of town," said another resident, Keyshonda Price."

Also, many people said they wanted a cleaner community with better security. The Economic Development Commission Chairman said they'll use the study to recruit the type of businesses residents requested.
