ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

City leaders hope restructuring the Albany Dougherty Inner City Authority and the Downtown Development Authority will help spur growth in downtown.

Right now, the groups have overlapping board members and missions, making it difficult to determine which authority should take action on certain projects.

City commissioners voted on Tuesday to separate the two.

"It is simply reconstructing the way ADICA is now. We have ADICA which covers a broad part of downtown area. We have DDA which is simply going to be the downtown area," said Commissioner BJ Fletcher.

ADICA will now focus more on redeveloping blighted areas and the DDA would be the primary authority for economic development projects in the Central Business District.
