Valdosta - 306 North opened its doors in downtown Valdosta three months ago, and owners say they couldn't have asked for a better location. "We've really been blessed, there's a lot of business downtown that helps us with lunch business," said Amy Ferrell, Restaurant Owner.
The restaurant is one of four new businesses that have opened downtown since July. And more are asking how they can be part of this historic area every day. "We've got two new state offices, an engineering firm, two restaurants, and antique shop and a business incubator that will all open on Patterson Street in probably the next six months," said Niki Knox, Main Street Director.
Downtown Valdosta is being reborn, and the revitalization is getting national attention. We're one of 11 semi-finalists for the 2006 Great American Main Street Award. "I think the panel that reviewed us realized we're doing things right here in Valdosta," said Knox.
This is the first year Valdosta has applied for the award, and they're up against some stiff competition. Yet, they were the only city from the state of Georgia picked as a semi-finalist, and one of only 2 from the whole Southeastern United States. "We're actively working the economic development side of it and preserving our history, which is what its all about," said Knox.
A rich history that's bringing new life to the heart of the city, and will hopefully help this downtown earn the title of Greatest Main Street in America.
The winner will be announced at the national Main Streets Conference in New Orleans in June.
