Reviving downtowns for economic prosperity is the centerpiece of a Renaissance Act being proposed by the Georgia Municipal Association.

Council members and county commissioners from across the district converged at the Thomson Depot Tuesday evening to hear more about the Renaissance Act, learn more about actions of the Georgia General Assembly during its January-March session and how they impact small cities and towns, and to learn about concerns and needs that should be addressed by the Georgia Municipal Association.
