ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany city leaders want to hear the opinions of the public on a proposed expansion of the city's historic district.

"When we come to our commission meeting Tuesday (April 25), it's definitely going to be voted on, one way or the other," said Albany City Commissioner Bobby Coleman of Ward II.

Coleman said the proposal by several commissioners would pave the way for a beautification project on North Broadway Street.

It would also expand the historic district to include more homes just outside Rawson Circle.

Coleman will host a town hall meeting Thursday, April 20.

He hopes people on both sides of the issue will attend to let city leaders know what concerns they have.

"This project, Rawson Circle project, the historic district and the Broadway beautification..these two things need to happen immediately and I need to get the ball rolling," Coleman said.

The town hall is scheduled for Thursday at 7 p.m. in the Community Room at the Law Enforcement Center located at 201 W. Oglethorpe Boulevard.

The proposal will be presented to the City Commission in its regularly scheduled meeting on April 25 at 6 p.m.
