Downtown Moultrie earns honors

October 22, 2007

Moultrie -- The city of Moultrie gets the state of Georgia's most improved downtown development award, which is given annually to just one Georgia city.

It recognizes a single downtown that has shown the greatest improvement in organization, promotion, design and economic restructuring over time.

City officials say it was a work in progress. "It all boils down to what we've done in our downtown over the last 18 years. I know that over $13 million has been spent in our downtown area at least in the last 10 years. A lot of the public offices have come back downtown," said Main Street Director Amy Johnson.  

Moultrie officials say it's a real honor. They recently received the award during the Georgia Downtown Conference in Columbus.
