Downtown Revitalization Work Plan Meeting

It's time for Blairsville and Union County residents to roll up their sleeves and get down to work!

The Downtown Development Authority of Blairsville is holding a downtown
revitalization work plan meeting on Monday, June 12, 7pm, in the Brackett Community Room
at United Community Bank. Local officials, civic leaders, revitalization committees, downtown
property owners, and other community members dedicated to the goal of revitalizing the
downtown are encouraged to attend and participate.

Representatives from the Georgia Department of Community Affairs and the Fanning
Institute of the University of Georgia will facilitate this meeting. The purpose of the meeting is
to update the priorities voiced at the Town Meeting in September of 2005 and to develop a
detailed work plan of committee projects, action steps, timelines, and funding sources.
The City of Blairsville is in the start-up phase of the Better Hometown Program, a self help
community development program administered by the State of Georgia. Not just a
"beautification project," the Better Hometown Program is designed to generate "economic
development through downtown revitalization, heritage preservation, and restoring a sense of
place." Historic and cultural preservation are the foundation of the program; improving the local
economy and quality of life are the outcomes.

This revitalization effort requires dedicated participants willing to do the hard work
necessary to produce long-lasting benefits for our community. Please join us for this meeting,
offer your input, and sign up for a committee to implement the target projects.
For additional information, please contact Jean Oakley, Program Manager, at 706-994-
