Albany-  Rural communities got a chance to see what Albany is doing right to fight blight and improve neighborhoods.

The Southwest Georgia Regional Development Center got a grant to bring code enforcement officers from other south Georgia towns to Albany today to learn strategies on housing development and code enforcement.

"Share information, resources, information, techniques on how to preserve the housing that's already in their communities and deal with some common problems in communities," said Barbara Reddick, Southwest Regional Development Center Senior Planner.

The group toured Albany locations to demonstrate why code enforcement is a vital piece to preserving housing values. More site visits are planned in Valdosta and Macon.
