Viewpoint: Community involvement

It's a new year. It's time to get involved to make our community a better place.  We recognize the Albany community has its share of issues, as do many other communities.

If you want a better community, take stock in what we have and do your part to improve the place we call home.

We've got some exciting PROJECTS to look forward to as we kick off our new year.

These major construction projects will create jobs and improve Albany's appearance.

Demolition of the old Broad Avenue Bridge should begin in a few months to make way for a new bridge.

Later this year, construction should begin on a Downtown Albany Transportation Center .

Also, work soon begins on a new terminal at Southwest Georgia Regional Airport.

A better look and more jobs. Let's not sit back and complain about what could be, rather celebrate this new year by supporting improvements in our community .
