TIFTON, GA (WALB) - A Tifton Developer wants to further improve the city's downtown with changes on Commerce Way.

Baxley Properties and Investments wants to relocate Hawkeye BBQ to Commerce Way, and create a banquet hall for 400 to 500 people.

The plans also include a rooftop restaurant.

The company will apply for a Downtown Development Revolving Loan.

However, the Downtown Development Authority and the City Council have to show support first.

The DDA's chairman, John Lowe, said he thinks it would be a big step for downtown.

"Of course that's what downtown development authority's mission is, is to further businesses downtown."

Officials said they anticipate the Tifton City Council to vote on a resolution supporting the loan application by Baxley Properties and Investments at the next City Council meeting.
