WAYNESBORO--- The city of Waynesboro is looking to downtown development to increase revenue.
The city is using an environment grant of $400,000 from the Environmental protection Agency to clean up the downtown area. The money is being divided between environmental cleanup and revitalization. The discussion held tonight focused on research and opinions on how to best redevelope the city.
Michael Barnes, Director of Planning for Waynesboro, said, "It's a place for their children to come down, a safe environment for them to recreate, you see that in many of the downtowns around our region, and it's something that Waynesboro is actually already starting to do."
The city hopes to increase interest in private and public investment in downtown. Waynesboro will hold planning discussions every night this week. Schedules for the discussion can be found at www.RevitalizingDowntownWaynesboro.com
