Tifton agency members talk city redevelopment projects

7 selected for Tifton's Urban Redevelopment Agency

TIFTON, Ga. (WALB) - Tifton leaders recently appointed new members for the city’s urban redevelopment agency

It consists of seven members who are all for expanding the cities resources throughout the community, leaders said.

Their first project is a safe haven in South Tifton for children traveling to Matt Wilson Elementary School.

“Because that’s an area we have proved through research and study that really needs Investment,” Director Bruce Green said.
