VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Members of the Georgia Department of Community Affairs were spending some time in Valdosta.

Wednesday, Valdosta city leaders took the members on a tour of the historic Cranford Building in downtown Valdosta.

The tour was designed to show the members how the city is spending the money they get from the DCA, which will ultimately help the DCA determine how much funding to give the city for programs and projects in the future.

"[To] be able to come to Valdosta and see the things they've been able to do with the input of the Department of Community Affairs funding and resources and seeing what they've planned is really exciting," said DCA Chairwoman Camila Knowles.

On Thursday, the group was scheduled to tour other areas of Valdosta before heading back to Atlanta.
