Sister Ruby, perhaps if you would have made it to the meeting, you would understand a bit more of what's going on. There were quite a few people there and most were interested in what Aaron had to speak on. The fact that most of the responses to this article have been of a somewhat positive nature are indeed good news. Maybe you need to step away from your crystal ball and come downtown this Friday evening or especially next for the Nights @Dtown. Positive things are already happening and more are coming to downtown, but most folks choose to ignore them.
So if the city takes over WG&L who then becomes responsible for cleaning up the old plant? Hmmmmmm..
Typically politics from Marietta. And Pike - well Pike is in a poke.
Blair has done a lot of work for downtown. He's gotten support from a good deal of folks, but these people aren't enough sometimes to sustain downtown sometimes. Folks are afraid to come to downtown for fear of safety, yet this area has one of the lowest crime rates in the city. If you argue there is nothing to do downtown, then have not opened your eyes or ears to the events that go on down there. There are too many Debbie Downers commenting on this post or any other post supporting downtown or anything that happens downtown. Take a challenge, show up for the Blair's State of Downtown address. I assure you that I will be there and other folks that want to see DT Albany revitalized. If you support Blair, then please show up. But it's the folks that don't support Blair and don't support DT to come see for yourselves what's going on see the folks that are trying to make a difference. Take a little pride in your town or keep your mouth shut.
Apparently this is not Malcom Davis's first time being in trouble with the law.
So why didn't the they vote against spending the $600,000 for the archeological search before voting to decide to build this project?
The Broad Ave school was a Greenbriar Holdings Property. It was foreclosed on in November of 2011. Looks like Mr. Comeau was trying to get rid of any attachments to Albany, GA. Capitol City Bank in Atlanta owns the property now.
The Broad Ave schoolhouse was a Greenbriar Holdings property. It was until he foreclosed on it in November 2011. Seems that Mr. Comeau was trying to unload whatever properties he could here in Albany. FWIW, Capitol City Bank in Atlanta now owns the property.
