The Design committee is tasked with helping Downtown put her best foot forward and to always make a good first impression.

  • Hosted 2 Downtown clean-ups in FY15 with more than 50 volunteers
  • Partnered with the Urban Development Authority to replace hardscape surrounding the trees on Cherry St. with planters. 
  • Work with Keep Macon-Bibb Beautiful, Public Works and Federated Garden Clubs to create partnership for maintaining Downtown planters

Highlight: Benjamin Moore “Paint What Matters”

Winner of the Benjamin Moore “Main Street Matters” contest. The entire project (20 cities) will be completed over the course of the next year. Exact times for Macon’s revitalization are still being determined but 2-3 blocks will be improved including the block of Second Street between Cherry and Poplar which is also the model block for the Second Street project. A site coordinator will work with Main Street Macon and other partners to determine what work needs to be done and will collect bids from local painters, contractors and construction crews.
