Albany - The new Chief Executive Officer of Albany Tomorrow says he will bring new focus to downtown Albany. Kenneth Weaver conducted his first ATI board meeting Wednesday. He updated members on projects, and said he plans to work with the Dougherty County Economic Development Commission to find a new focus for downtown. He also plans to update the city's Master Plan for development.

He said, "Let's face it that's 12 years. In 12 years a lot of things have happened and a lot of the projects in that plan have been completed, so now we need to know what direction we need to go. Do we need to have more public private? Do we need to see if we can get some more housing downtown?"

Weaver said he's also been in talks with Peter Studl, who owns many of the properties downtown, about some ideas he has for the area, and ways they may fit into the master plan.
