ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Downtown Albany leaders are coming up with new ways to attract businesses to downtown and track their interest in the area.

These newsletters will be given to ADICA leaders at their monthly meetings to show the progress with potential new businesses.

They're also working on a website that will allow the public to see the square footage and ownership of vacant buildings.

"Just better customer service and trying to make sure that we're in a position to be really responsive to help ensure that when people are interested in coming downtown we can tell them what's available," said Downtown Manager Latoya Cutts.

That database website should be up and running by the end of the month. 

A cost analysis is also being done to determine the next steps for private development in empty storefronts on the riverfront.
