ADICA supports downtown microbrewery

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany-Dougherty Inner City Authority helps give the greenlight to a major downtown development.

Monday, they voted to support a planned microbrewery in the 100 block of Pine Avenue where the Art Park now sits.
The Downtown Manger says the vote was necessary for the city to execute a memorandum of understanding with the developer.

"Showing their support for the funding being provided out of that revolving loan fund and the second thing that they did again is that the development authority is the actual owner of the property that will be used as part of the development site and so they've given the approval to be able to utilize that property as part of the development,” said Latoya Cutts, Albany Downtown Manager.

A private company led by Albany surgeon Tripp Morgan is planning the project that should create more than 40 construction jobs and 10 jobs with the business.
The city commission will take a final vote on the project Tuesday.
