AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - City leaders are working together to make the downtown area a more vibrant place.
The city manager brought in Sharlene Cannon several weeks ago as a consultant to talk with business owners and residents about downtown.
She's asking folks what they like and don't like and is preparing a list of recommendations to present to the city council and mayor. She says having a vibrant downtown is vital to a community's success.
"Your downtown is the footprint of your community. It's your living room. It's your heart and soul. It shows what your history is. It's where people have the greatest memories," said Cannon.
Cannon hopes to gather everything she needs to present to the council soon.
