In this newly launched campaign, we are charting the path to further propel us to our goal: a completely revitalized downtown Macon. The workplan for this campaign seeks to leverage massive economic and cultural benefits for our entire region by converting latent potential into a tangible reality. During this campaign cycle, we are seeking to create a self-sustaining infrastructure to support downtown as an economic engine and cultural hub for all of central Georgia.
The Building on Progress campaign seeks to:
• Invest at least $5 million in loans for real estate development
• Increase walkability by investing in pedestrian safety and activating public spaces
• Plan, fund, and construct several enticing connections from the existing Ocmulgee Heritage Trail network
