SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) -

Downtown Sylvester is partnering with Downtown Athens to work on improving the heart of the city.

As a part of Georgia's Downtown Association, a representative from Athens Downtown Development Authority made her way to south Georgia to see what the town had to offer.

The goal was to offer support among downtown business owners to create a thriving downtown.

"We really want to make sure that when people hear Sylvester that they're excited about the merchants and the dining experience and all the events that are being held and they think about downtown Sylvester," said Pamela Thompson.

Thompson said it was a perfect opportunity to share successful practices with other areas, and ensure every downtown is successful.
