MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

Moultrie city leaders are working on a million-dollar streetscape project to revamp the downtown streets.

Phase one of the project focuses on building the city's first-ever pocket park.

The park is funded by both private and public funds. 

City leaders said they're also increasing the number of plants on the street by 40 percent.

And they're adding red and grey pavers to more downtown sidewalks.

The project, which started six months ago, has even received support from the state.

"The director of state botanical gardens here who is excited about what we are doing and said she would love to be involved in selecting and help plant plants throughout our project so it's becoming a destination city but it's also becoming a statewide excitement, a statewide project," said City Manager Peter Dillard. 

Moultrie city leaders expect to have the park ready in the next three months, but the entire project will take at least three years before it's completed.
