ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany State University officials want your help to "AMPP Up the Good Life."     

The two month community and economic development initiative is put on by Albany State University's Department of Public Administration. It will focus on solving problems in Albany and Dougherty County and finding creative ways to highlight the positive things the community has to offer.  

"We're really needing a symbol, we really need a song, and we need a mascot and we need community stories about why we need to "Ampp Up the Good Life" and how we can "Ampp Up the Good Life," said Veronica Adams-Cooper with the Department of Public Administration.       

The first three meeting sessions will kick off Wednesday at the Arthur K. Williams Micro Business Enterprise Center downtown starting at 10:00 a.m. The next sessions will be on Saturday at L. Orene Hall on Albany State University's campus.
