THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Thomasville city leaders want the community's input as they set plans for a new visitor's center. 

The Roses store on Dawson Street will soon close as city planners redesign the space. 

With more folks flocking to town for events such as the Rose Show Parade and other business conferences, the city said the space is desperately needed.

City Planner Brian Hermann said, “This is a monumental building that we hope will last another 50 to 100 years.  If you're a member of this community, this is your building and your chance to provide some input.  We want to hear from you.”

Folks are welcome to voice their suggestions for the new space from June first to June third at Saint Thomas Episcopal Church. 

For more information call the City of Thomasville Planning Department at 229-227-4118 or Thomasville Visitor's Center at 229-228-7977.
